A son and a daughter took their poor, elderly mother to a seniors centre and left her,hoping she would be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathed her,fed her a delicious breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a beautiful flower garden.
The old lady seemed peaceful, but after a while she slowly started to tilt sideways in her chair.Two attentive nurses immediately rushed up to catch her and straighten her up.
Again she seemed peaceful, but after a while she slowly started to tilt over to her other side.Two nurses rushed back and once more brought her back upright. This went on all morning.Later, the son and daughter arrived to see how the old woman was adjusting to her new home.
“So Mom, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?”
“It’s pretty nice,” the old woman replied. “Except they won’t let me fart.”
