The Choice

An elderly patient needed a heart transplant and discussed his options with his consultant.

The doctor said, “We have three possible donors.

“The first is a young, healthy athlete who died in a motor accident; the second is a middle-aged businessman who never drank or smoked and who died flying his private jet and, the third donor is an elderly lawyer who died after having practiced law for over 40 years. Which do you want?”

After some careful thought, the patient replied, “I’ll take the lawyer’s heart.”

After the successful transplant, the doctor asked the patient why he had chosen the lawyer’s heart.

“It is simple,” he explained the patient “I wanted a heart that hadn’t ever been used.”
