I’ve got some good news–and some bad news. January 10, 2009

Has anyone ever said that to you?  My husband came in last night from tinkering with the car and said:
J: I’ve got some good news, and some bad news.
B: What’s the bad news?
J: The good news is that I fixed the cigarette lighter so it isn’t dangling from the dash anymore (How this happened, we don’t know).  The bad news is that the stereo doesn’t work.  I had to unplug it to get the lighter back in and now it wants the security code so we’ll have to take it in to get fixed.  AND, the cigarette lighter doesn’t work either.
B: Wait, what is the good news?  I don’t think there was any…
If you are given the choice between knowing good news or bad news, which one do you choose to hear first?  I like the bad first–then when I hear the good news, the bad doesn’t seem so terrible.

    I\’m with you — I\’d rather hear the bad news first. Your Christmas card was cute — your kids are getting so big!

    I like to hear the bad news first also. Don\’t you love car repairs? Our automatic opening van door stopped opening automatically. Hate it.
