Miscellaneous : Missing The Ferry
Missing The Ferry
A man loved living on an island, but he wasn't crazy about the ferry. If
you missed a ferry late at night, you had to spend the next hour or so
waiting for the next one.
So, when he spotted a ferry no more than fifteen feet from the dock, he
decided he wouldn't subject himself to an hour's wait. He made a running
leap and landed on his hands and knees, a little bruised maybe, but safe
He got up, brushed himself off, and announced proudly to a bystander,
"Well, I made that one, didn't I?"
"Sure did," the bystander said. "But you should have waited a minute or
two. The ferry is just about to dock."
