A doctor asked...

If I fill the bathtub up completely with water. I hand you a bucket, a cup, and a spoon. What will you use to empty the tub the fastest?

If you are fit and healthy a bucket of course, however depending on the level of pain then a cup or spoon may be the only methods suitable, so time becomes immaterial ;)

I would unplug the drain lol.

@ sandibeach, but that wasn't in the question...lol. 😉

LOL.... FlappsyLady, that was my thought too.. Pull the plug.. 😊

Yep. Drain was my thought too. BUT. If it's not an option then a cup would be fastest because it would be really hard to get the last bit wit a bucket.

Hmmmm , btw, you all are funny :) BUT why was he asking you this? Was he trying to make a point using word plays or something??

I think he was testing my problem solving ability since the other doc (neuro-psych) said I display more dementia issues than most people my age. My PCP asked that, and he's been the least supportive of all my docs,trying to say "its all in my head." I guess in a way the N-Psych doc proved it is! Lol
