Bath Tub Test

(Tyler, TX)

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?

"Well," he said, "We fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person, to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No," he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

Ok...for those with no sense of humor, this is just a joke.

Laughing Out Loud

I love an unexpected giggle. Thank you so much for sharing this. I do remember reading it before but had long forgotten it. I was almost nervous to read it. I was afraid stepping in and out of the tub was going to be the problem. You made me laugh out loud. Thank you.
