Aussie Sensitivity

Three Aussies were working on a high-rise building project – Steve, Bruce and Bluey.

Steve falls off and is killed instantly.

As the ambulance takes the body away, Bruce says, “Someone should go and tell his wife.”

Bluey says, “OK, I’m pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I’ll do it.”

Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Fosters.

Bruce says, “Where did you get that, Bluey?”

“Steve’s wife gave it to me,” Bluey replies.

“That’s unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?”

“Well not exactly,” Bluey says.  “When she answered the door, I said to her, You must be Steve’s widow.”

She said, “No, I’m not a widow.”

And I said, “I’ll bet you a case of Fosters you are.”
