The Bathtub Test

(This joke was sent by a friend. Thanks Khater!)

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

Well,' said the director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.'

'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor.

A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup..'

'No' said the director, 'A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'

(The visitor became the next patient! Waaaa!)
