Saddleworth Chatter by GH
AN Arab Sheik was admitted to hospital for heart surgery but prior to the operation the doctors needed to have some of his blood type stored in case the need arose.
As the gentleman had an extremely rare type of blood that couldn’t be found locally, the call went out around the world.
Finally a Saddleworth man was located who had the same rare blood type and the chap donated his blood for the Arab.
After the surgery the Arab sent the Yorkshire donor a new BMW, a diamond necklace for his wife, and £100,000 in appreciation for the blood donation.
A few months later, the Arab had to undergo a corrective surgery procedure. Once again, his doctor telephoned the Yorkshire chap who this time was more than happy to donate his blood.
After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Saddleworth fellow a thank you card and a box of Quality Street chocolates.
The fellow was shocked that the Arab did not repeat the kind gesture he had made after the first surgery. He phoned the Arab and said: “I thought you would be more generous than that.
“Last time you sent me a BMW, diamonds and money, but this time you only sent me a lousy thank you card and a box of Chocolates?”
To this the Arab replied: “Aye, lad, but I now have Yorkshire blood in my veins!”
