Once a man was caught in a flood. Perched on his roof he watched as the waters around him rose and as they rose he prayed to God for assistance. After a short time a helicopter appeared out of the rain pouring down, and as it approached to within a few yards of him a hand appeared from the cockpit bearing a pistol. Aiming carefully the chopper’s pilot put two rounds into the man’s chest, and as he fell to the roof of his house dying the helicopter flew off.
Now up before the Heavenly Throne the now irate man demanded to know, “What the fuck!”
God replied, “You weren’t going to accept whatever I sent you, so I decided to cut it short.”
