What are you waiting for?

There’s a joke.

It’s about a guy living beside a river.  It’s raining really hard and the river starts to flood. The sheriff’s deputies come by and tell him he should leave before the river cuts off the road.

“The Lord will save me,” he tells them.

The river is up to the front porch and the some folks come by in a boat and tell him to hop in and they’ll take him to safety.

“The Lord will save me,” he tells them.

The water rises above the first floor and the man has to climb on his roof. The National Guard comes by in a boat and begs the man to come with them.

“The Lord will save me,” he tells them.

The waters keep rising and the man is clinging to his chimney.

A helicopter appears and lowers a rope, but he refuses to go, telling them “The Lord will save me.”

Finally, when the man has been drowned and has gone to heaven, he meets the Lord.

“Lord,” he asks, “Why did you forsake me in my time of need?”

And the Lord responds, “I sent two boats and a helicopter… What more did you want?”
