    I was taking a lady from the dining room to her room. She had difficulty hearing and yelled everything she said. well a nurse was talking to her roomates daughter and it was private so i shut the door and this was the conversation:
    "Can you wait out here for me L? they need some privacy.
    "WELL WHAT ARE THE DOIN'?"

    "I KNOW WHAT THERE DOING, THERE HAVING SEX AINT THEY."
    "No L"

    I heard half the building start laughung. including the nurse and family behind the door.
