A nurse went to discharge her patient. When she walked in the room she saw the man sitting on the edge of the bed, already dressed and with a suitcase at his feet.
The nurse brought in a wheelchair and placed it in front of the man. He looked at the chair in confusion.
“I don’t need that I can walk just fine,” he told her.
“I understand,” the nurse replied. “Although, it’s hospital regulation that everyone has to leave in a wheelchair.”
The man sat down in the chair and allowed the nurse to wheel him out the front. On their way down the nurse asked the man if his wife was coming to pick him up.
“No,” he told the nurse. “She’s upstairs changing out of her hospital gown!”
