Just Because

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.

Jim and Edna were patients in a mental hospital. One day while
they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim
suddenly jumped into the deep end, sank to the bottom, and
stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in, swam to the bottom, and pulled Jim

When the hospital director learned of Edna’s heroic act, he
ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as he now
considered her to be mentally stable.

When the director went to tell Edna, he 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 another patient, I
have concluded that you are of sound mind. The bad news is
that Jim, the patient you saved, 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?”

I wanted to send the above joke because of the introductory
line, which is how I received it. It really points out the
dangers of making assumptions on very little evidence.
