What About Bob!

I had a meeting with one of the administrators this week. He told me this interesting story. 

During his rounds in the hospital, he went to see an elderly sweet lady. She was lying in bed, lost in her own thoughts. He introduced himself and inquired if there is any thing he can do?

Our lady was very grateful that a hospital administrator came to her room and he cares enough to ask her if there is any thning she needs. That pleasant conversation went on for few minutes.

Our administrator by then was quite confident that he has created a good rapport with this lady. On his way out he asked "is there anything else I can do for you?"

She looked up at him and said "let me ask Bob" she turned her head towards an emty chair asked "so Bob is there any thing else he can do for us?" 
For the next five minutes she continued to have a very creative discussion with the empty chair and invisible Bob. 

During this time our administrator stood there, very confused and not wanting to interrupt, after she was done she dismissed him.

There are so many lessons to learn from this story but mostly, never sit on an empty chair, you may hurt Bob! ............

PS: About the picture.
