There were three sisters, 92, 94, and 96 years old that lived together.

One night the 96-year old drew a bath. As she put her foot in the bath she paused, "Was I getting in the tub or out?" she yells to her sister.

The 94-year old yelled back, "I don't know, but I'll come up and see."

As she starts up the stairs she suddenly stops. She shouts out, "Was I going up or coming down?"

The 92-year old was sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful," and knocks on the wooden table for good measure.

Then she yells up to her two sisters, "I'll come up and help you both as soon as I see who's at the door."
