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.”
