Monday Mirth

I'm showing this video again for the benefit of those who haven't seen it!

The following was emailed by a friend

NO NURSING HOME FOR US!!!

We'll be checking into a Holiday Inn! With the average cost for a nursing home care costing 188.00 per day, there is a better way when we get old and too feeble.

I've already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn.

For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it's 59.23 per night.

Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon.

That leaves 128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies.

Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc.

Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.

5 worth of tips a day you'll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

They treat you like a customer, not a patient.

There's a bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.

For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there.

While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.

It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.

And you're not stuck in one place forever -- you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.

Want to see Scotland ? They have Holiday Inn there too.

TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem.. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.

The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they'll call an ambulance . . . or the undertaker.

If you fall and break a hip, NHS will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini-vacation.

The grandkids can use the pool.

What more could I ask for?

So, when I reach that golden age, I'll face it with a grin.

*laughing* The video reminded me of the 'black hole' email I sent on to the HR department. Same black hole, of course--I wanted to make sure they knew where it was. (with me of course.....LOL)

As for the Holiday Inn vs nursing home........I'm all about that!

Heehee, good idea, Brian.

Mel, the more I think about it the more I like the idea of living in a holiday home.

Pearl, we could share one...grins.

That's a very clever video. Love the ending! What a good idea to book in to the Holiday Inn. I bet there're some people already doing just that!!

Valerie said...

Star, I believe there are many who become permenent hotel residents. Food for thought...lol.

Hi Ron. We have travel lodges here... Hahaha I doubt if they organise world travel. It would be nice spending advancing years with someone waiting on me. Oh boy!

That black hole has given me the shivers. I just hope I can sleep tonight.

Funny video! See what happens when one gets greedy? He would have been alright taking just SOME of the money, right? Ha ha!
