Conversation in a Nursing Home

(This really happened.)

Social Worker, thinking Ms. H has dementia: OK, can you subtract 7 from 100, and keep counting backward by 7?

Ms. H: Hell no, I can't do that!

Social Worker:  Can you tell me who the president is?

Ms. H: It's that damn fool, Bush!  I can't believe he got reelected! Did you see what what he just did? (Gets up and gets a newspaper, then shakes it in the face of the social worker.)
