A friend of mine has just bought a new diving wetsuit online. She thought it looked a little small but decided to try it on to check it out.
She was away, alone, at her holiday home a couple of hours away from all her friends.
So she took off all her clothes, put the wetsuit on, doing the laying down thing that you do when your jeans are a bit tight, to pull up the zip. She was in!!
All was well until she decided she wanted to take it off… She tried for half an hour, getting hotter and more exhausted. Try as she might she couldn’t get the wetsuit off her shoulders.
So with no other options she decided to go to the neighbors and ask for assistance. She had a few to choose from, but decided to go for the elderly couple over the fence.
She hobbles over – unable to bend her knees or elbows, Knock knock on the door. An older man answers the door.
“Ummm I need some assistance… Do you think your wife might be able to help me get out of this wetsuit?”
Goodness only knows what must have been running through his head, however he said
“Yes certainly, however I am not sure that she will be much help…”
So my friend finds herself in a bathroom with this mans wife, when she realizes that the lady has dementia! This poor lady thinks that Vic is a cleaning lady!
“How are you getting on in there?” The man asks from the hallway.
“Ummm not terribly well actually!” My friend answers.
So he comes in to help. He manages to get her shoulders free but then carries on even further… My friend then finds herself standing topless in a bathroom with two elderly strangers!
One can only begin to imagine what the old boy told his friends at the bowling club that night!!
