  • 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.
     
     Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.  One day
    while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool , Ralph
    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 him 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 the person you love...  I have concluded that your act displays
    sound mindedness.

    The bad news is, Ralph 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?'
