The Apple Juice Maneuver

I am a sick old man.
I was sick and in the hospital.
There was one nurse that just drove me crazy.

Every time she came in, she would talk to me like I was a little child.



She would say in a patronizing tone of voice,




‘And how are we doing this morning’,

Or ‘Are we ready for a bath’, or ‘Are we hungry ?’
I had had enough of this particular nurse.
One day, at breakfast, I took the apple juice off the tray and put it in my bed side stand.


Later, I was given a urine bottle to fill for testing. 



So you know where the juice went !

The nurse came in a little later, picked up the urine bottle and looked at it.
‘My, it seems we are a little cloudy today. ‘
At this, I snatched the bottle out of her hand, popped off the top, and drank it down, saying, ‘Well, I’ll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time.’
