Jim & Edna

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't 
mean they don't love you with all they have. 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 Jim out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she 
immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now=
considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she 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 

The bad news is that Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in the 
bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so 
sorry, but he's dead."

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