    Why did he die?

    Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to his passengers.

    One day a young girl tried to board but he didn't stop the bus.

    The young girl fell under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers took the conductor to the police station and he was taken to court.

    The judge was not at all impressed with the conductor and sentenced him to death.

    The conductor was taken to the execution chamber and strapped to the electric chair. The high voltage current was switched on … to everyone's amazement, the conductor survived. The judge had to set the conductor free and he returned to his old job.



    A few months later, a middle aged woman tried to board but the conductor didn't stop the bus. The woman fell under the bus and died on the spot.


    Again angry passengers took the conductor to the police station and he was once more taken to court. The judge took one look at the conductor and did not hesitate to sentence him to death again. The conductor was taken to the same execution chamber as before and strapped in the electric chair. The high voltage current was switched on … and, to everyone's amazement, the conductor survived. The judge had again to set the conductor free and he returned once more to his old job.


    A couple of months later, an elderly gentleman tried to board the bus. This time, the conductor courteously held the bus back for the elderly gentleman to board but unfortunately the elderly gentleman slipped and fell and died later from injuries incurred in the fall. The conductor was taken to the court to face the same judge he had twice before. Considering his past record, the judge sentenced the conductor once again to death.

    The conductor was taken to the same execution chamber as before, strapped into the electric chair and the high voltage current switched on …

    This time the conductor was instantly electrocuted!!!



    Question : Why wasn't the conductor electrocuted on the first two occasionsbut was on the third???

    On the first two occasions he was a poor conductor, but on the third he was a good conductor

    Oh...I didn't think that was the case here. I thought the conductor died because he was a sexist. Okay. Now I should look at the obvious,

    The way I see it, we are all immortal in a sense, we are just here on earth to determine where and how we will spend eternity.

    Before I read the answer, I thought it was because the elderly gentleman was in charge of maintenance at the institution where the electric chair was. Since he died, they had to hire a new maintenance man and he checked the fuses and saw one was bad, so he replaced it!
