For those of you who don't know, my husband works at a nursing home. As part of his duties, he is responsible for handling the admittance process for new residents, which includes a variety of paperwork and a pre-screening type interview.
One of the questions he has to ask about the person being admitted is whether or not they were ever a convicted sex offender, because, you know, nursing homes don't want to admit potential threats to their communities.
So on one recent day he is interviewing a man who is admitting his wife, and my husband gets to the part of the interview where he has to ask if the woman is a convicted sex offender.
The man's response?
"Well if she was, I was sure missing out."
