After pushing the elevator button, she looked at her watch. She was going to be late for her doctor's appointment. Then she noticed something—she was still wearing her slippers. She went back into her apartment. Her husband asked, "What'd you forget this time, honey?" She pointed at her slippers. He laughed. She said, "It's not funny.
