Thursday Special ~ The Bathtub Test

During a visit to my  doctor, I asked him, “How do you determine whether or not  an older person should be put in an Elder Care 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?”

Thanks Paddy, which bed did you select? 😉
