Three friends had a good friend named Joe and he was an eternal optimist. At every bad situation he would always say "It could have been worse."

It could have been worse – mogło być gorzej

eternal – wieczny

His friends hated that quality about him, so they came up with a story so horrible that not even Joe could come up with a bright side.

quality – cecha

come up with – wymyślić coś

bright side – pozytywna (dosł. jasna) strona

So the next day, only two of his friends showed up for a golf date. Joe asked, "Where's Gary?" And one of his friends said, "Didn't you hear? Yesterday, Gary found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both, and then turned the gun on himself."

 

Joe says, "Well, it could have been worse."

Both his friends said, "How the heck could it be worse? Your best friend just killed himself!"

Joe says, "If it had happened two days ago, I'd be dead now!"
