As we get older, we often expect that our lives are going to change. Sometimes they change for the better and other times, they may change for the worse.
The woman in this joke experienced that truth whenever she was put in a nursing home.
She was having a difficult time staying upright in her chair, but there was someone there to help her every time she started to lean over.
The problem was, when her family came, she had a funny thing to tell them. I won’t give any spoilers, but let’s just say it is well worth the read.
One evening, a family takes their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home, hoping she will be well cared for.
The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.
She seems O.K. but after a while, she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair.
Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.
Again, she seems O.K. but after a while, she starts to tilt to the other side.
The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright.
This goes on all morning.
Later, the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home.
“So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?” they ask.
“It’s pretty nice,” she replies.
“Except they won’t let you fart.”
