Mr. Smith goes to the doctor's office to
collect his wife's test result. The lab tech
says, "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, that's either bad or terrible."

"What do you mean?"

"Well, one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for
Alzheimer's disease and the other for AIDS. We can't
tell which is your wife."

"That's terrible! Can we do the test over?"

"Normally, yes. But you have an HMO, and
they won't pay for these expensive tests more than once."

"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"

"The HMO recommends that you drop your
wife off in the middle of town. If she finds
her way home, don't sleep with her."
