The lab tech says to him, "I'm sorry, ma'am, but there has been a bit
of a mix-up and we have a problem.
we sent the samples from your husband to the lab, the samples from another
Mr. Smith were sent as well and we are now uncertain which one is your husband's
results. Frankly, it is either bad or terrible!"
do you mean?"
one Mr. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other for AIDS.
We can't tell which is your husband."
terrible! Can we do the test over?"
yes. But you have an HMO, and they won't pay for these expensive tests more
what am I supposed to do now?"
HMO recommends that you drop your husband off in the middle of town. If he
finds his way home, don't sleep with him."
