@mymailbox: The bathtub test

Sometimes, i couldn’t agree more that the older we get, we tend to see things more in a complex way instead of just keeping it simple. And below is one good example of it, i’m sure you’ll be ‘quacked’ up after reading it. hehe…

The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

‘Well,’ said the Director, ‘we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.’ ‘Oh, I understand,’ said the visitor.

‘A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.’

‘No’ said the Director, ‘A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?’

ARE YOU GOING TO PASS THIS ON, OR DO YOU WANT THE BED NEXT TO MINE ?
