One day, a nurse went to discharge a patient. The elderly gentleman in the hospital room was already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet.
“Come on, sir! You have to leave the hospital in a wheelchair.”
“I don’t need your help,” the man said. “I can walk just fine.”
“It’s hospital regulations,” the nurse said. “Everyone has to leave in a wheelchair.”
Finally, the man agreed and let the nurse wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, she asked him if his wife was meeting him outside the hospital.
“No,” said the man. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom, changing out of her hospital gown.”
