Every day, day after day, the man hears the same voice when he comes home from work. “Quit your job, sell your house, take your money, go to Vegas.”
Every time the man hears the voice, he becomes increasingly angry. Finally, after two weeks, he succumbs to the pressure. He quits his job, sells his house, takes his money and goes to Vegas.
The moment he gets off the plane in Vegas, the voice tells him, “Go to Harrah.” So he gets into a taxi and rushes to Harrah.
As soon as he enters the casino, the voice tells him, “Go to the roulette table.”
The man does as he is told. When he arrives at the roulette table, the voice tells him, “Put all your money on 17.”
The man nervously collects his money for chips and then bets them all on 17.
The dealer wishes the man good luck and spins the roulette wheel. Turns around and around the ball. The man watches the ball anxiously as it slowly loses speed until it finally gets stuck in the number … 21.
The voice says: “Crap!”
