How not to lose an argument

Guy wrecks his motorcycle.

He's got a broken hip, a fractured spleen, and three rib fractures with an associated pneumothorax.

He just got married a week and a half ago.

He just got back from his honeymoon yesterday.

He and his wife got into a fight about his motorcycle.

She wants him to get rid of it, he doesn't want to.

He took off on said motorcycle and ended up in Trauma 5.

Methinks the decision was made for him.

Yep i would say your right unless he wants to end up in divorce court. so i see you survived the call in on your vacation. I' m off this week every time the phone rings i look at caller ID and hope they are not calling me too ;)

I don't know why men can't just listen to their wives! It's really quite simple.

I would have loved to been privy to the "I told you so" conversation this newlywed couple had. Hopefully, he won't die or anything too tragic. A little bit of pain will suffice.

That story is classic! See men, this is what happens when you don't listen to your wives

May I ask how one fractures their spleen though?

well, she gets her wish, but will pay a price. She will eventually have to take the man back home with here, where he will promptly whine over his pain and cry over his motorcycle.
I love men, I really do. But, their pain tolerance is usually nil.

Men are so much smarter when they're married. That's because they regularly plug into a genius.

So women, let that be a lesson to you - if you'd like him to be smarter, let him Hot Sync to the master computer a little more often, noamsayne? ;)

I hope he is more careful in the future so they have a future.

That's funny ambulance driver! :)

I know his wife is going to hold this over his head for the rest of his life. Gentlemen, you must learn two words if you want a happy marriage:

"Yes, dear."

My husband refuses to let me get a new motorcycle. His ex-wife's hubby refuses to let her do it, too. We just want to go riding together! And as an ED nurse, I SWEAR to be careful...

I know, I know. Oh well.

I bet he will ride his motorcycle again. So many of our motorcycle patients have had prior accidents and when I ask, they say they will ride again.
