The Elderly Patient

Charlie Chaplain’s Tales

 

I once found an elderly gentleman  already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, ready to leave.

“Off home, then?” I said, stating the obvious.

“Yes, just waiting for my wife”

“May I give you a hand to the lifts and then to the ground floor exit”.

On the way down I asked him where his wife was meeting him.

“I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
