An elderly man was feeling stressed one day and so he decided to take a hot bath.
Just as he had got into the bath and became comfortable, well what do you know, the doorbell rings.
So, the man got out of the bathtub, put on his slippers and bath robe and went to see who was at the door.
Well, when he opened the front door, standing there there was a salesman, who wanted to know if he needed any brushes.
Slamming the door in frustration, the man made his way back upstairs and returned to his bath.
He had barely had time to take his clothes off again and sat down in the bath, when he heard the doorbell ring again.
Out of the bath he got, on went the slippers and robe and the man started to head for the front door again.
He took one step, slipped on a wet spot on the floor, fell backwards and hit his back against the hard porcelain bathtub.
Cursing under his breath and in a lot of pain, the man struggled into his street clothes and with every move causing a sharp stab of pain, he drove to the doctor.
After examining him, the doctor said to him, “You know, you’ve been very lucky. Nothing is broken, but you really do need to relax. Why don’t you go home and take a long hot bath?”
