Mr. Smith goes to the doctor’s office to collect his wife’s test results.
The lab technician says to him, “I’m sorry, sir, but there has been a bit of a mix-up and we have a problem. When we sent the samples from your wife to the lab, the samples from another Mrs. Smith were sent as well and we are now uncertain which one is your wife’s. Frankly, it is either bad or terrible!”
“What do you mean?” asked Mr. Smith.
“Well one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other Mrs. Smith has tested positive for AIDS. We can't tell which is your wife.”
“That’s terrible!” said Mr. Smith. “Can’t we do the test over?”
“Normally, yes. But you have Manitoba Health Care and they won’t pay for these expensive tests more than once.”
“Well, what am I supposed to do now?” asked Mr. Smith.
“Manitoba Health Care recommends that you drop your wife off in the middle of town. If she finds her way home, don’t sleep with her!”
