Bad Luck

When Billy Jack was younger, he did everything to please his girlfriend, Billy Jane. So, he decided to become a member of a parachute team in the army. On the plane, the instructor told him to pull the cord with his right hand after jumping. If the parachute didn’t open , he should then pull the other cord with the left hand. “There will be a truck down there waiting for you, Billy Jack”, the instructor said. Billy Jack jumped and pulled the cord with his left hand, but the parachute didn’t open. Then he pulled the other cord with his right hand, but it still didn’t open. Billy Jack got very nervous and said to himself: “I have really bad luck. And now, I bet the truck won’t even be waiting for me.”
