THE BATHTUB TEST
Sunday, February 02, 2014
During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be insitut8ionalized. "Well," said the director, we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," I said. "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?"
