A doctor entered the hospital in a hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery.

He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block.

He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor.

On seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did you take all this time to come?
Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled & said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down?
If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again & replied:

“I will say what JOB said in the Holy Book,
‘From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”.
Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & intercede for your son, we will do our
best by God’s grace”

“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured
the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,

“Thank goodness! Your son is saved!”
And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running.
“If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father.
When seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face:

“His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery.

And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”


Never judge anyone….. Because you never know how their life is and what they’re going through”

  1. E dey good, to always judge books by their covers. All that glitters, is always gold. If that saying, was so good, why didn’t they use it properly. In the lyrics, of this foreign song; “stairway to heaven” by led zeppelin. One complex question, we should all ask ourselves. Those who fail to judge books, by their covers. Have they achieved anything, counter-intuitive or special by doing this. If the answer na no, e mean say this proverb na nonsense. Maybe it’s even because of this, that god created people. In such a way that, they will be nervous. If they are trying, to deceive others. So that you can discern, that what they are doing, is a scam
