The Bathtub Test

The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the Director, “How do you
determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized?”

“Well,” explained 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 replied. “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?
