mental story


Prime VIP
Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.One day while
they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped
into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna
promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the medical director became aware of Edna's heroic act he
immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as he now
her to be mentally stable. When he went to tell Edna the news he said,
"Edna I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being
discharged;since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by
jumping in
and saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act
displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Jim, the patient you
saved,hung himself right after you saved him with his bathrobe belt in
thebathroom. I am sorry, but he's dead."

Edna replied "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can
I go home?"
