The phone rang at the Nurses’ Station.
A little old lady spoke quietly and somewhat reticently: “I’m so sorry to bother you, but could you possibly tell me how Miss Mary Wilson is getting on? She’s in room 7”
“Well, she’s doing just splendidly. In fact, she’s going to be discharged tomorrow afternoon, and a care package has been arranged for her.”
“Oh, thank you very much, indeed; that’s wonderful news”
“Excuse me, I forgot to ask who was calling”
“Oh sorry, it’s Miss Wilson phoning from room 7 – nobody here tells me a F*****g thing!”
