Friday Joke: Which Would You Do?

While fixing the cable at a local asylum, the installer ask the asylum director how the staff determined whether a patient should be institutionalized?

“Well,” said the director, “we have a number of tests we use, but one of the best we call the bathtub test.”

“The bathtub test?” asked the cable guy.

“Yes,” said the director. “We fill up a bathtub, then we offer the prospective patient a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket and asked them to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” said the cable guy, nodding his head knowingly. A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or teacup.”

“No.” said the director, “A normal person would pull the plug…..you seem like a nice person. Would you like a bed near the window?.”
