BATHTUB TEST!During a visit to the mental hospital,
I 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,' I said.
'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?'
