Hearing Voices

Steve is working in his shop when he hears a booming voice from above: "Steve, sell your business." He ignores it. It goes on for days. "Steve, sell your business for $3 million."

After weeks of this, he relents and sells his shop. The voice says, "Steve,, go to the casino." He asks why. "Steve, take the $3 million to the casino." He obeys and goes to a casino.

Then the voice says, "Steve, go to the blackjack table and put it down all on one hand." Steve hesitates but knows he must. He's dealt an 18. The dealer has a six showing.

"Steve, take a card." What? The dealer has... "Take a card!" He tells the dealer to hit him. Steve gets an ace - nineteen. He breathes easy.

"Steve, take another card." What? "TAKE ANOTHER CARD!" He asks for another card. It’s another ace. He has twenty.

"Steve, take another card," the voice commands. I have twenty! Steve shouts. "TAKE ANOTHER CARD!!" booms the voice.

Hit me, Steve says. He gets another ace. Twenty one.

The booming voice goes: "un-fucking-believable!"
