An 80 year old couple were having problems remembering
things, so they decided to go to their doctor to get
checked out to make sure nothing was wrong with them.
When they arrived to the doctor's office, they explained
to the doctor about the problems they were having with
their memory. After checking the couple out, the doctor
told them that they were physically okay but might want
to start writing things down and make notes to help them
remember things. The couple thanked the doctor and left.
Later that night while watching TV, the man got up from
his chair and his wife asked, "Where are you going?"
He replied, "To the kitchen."
She asked, "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"
He replied, "Sure."
She then asked him, "Don't you think you should write it
down so you can remember it?"
He said, "No, I can remember that."
She then said, "Well I would also like some strawberries
on top. You had better write that down because I know
you'll forget that."
He said, "I can remember that, you want a bowl of
ice cream with strawberries."
She replied, "Well I also would like whipped cream on top.
I know you will forget that so you better write it down."
With irritation in his voice, he said, "I don't need
to write that down! I can remember that." He then fumes
into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes he returned from the kitchen and
handed her a plate of bacon and eggs. She stared at the
plate for a moment and said angrily:
"I TOLD you to write it down! You forgot my toast!"
