FTA: The victim fell into the tub last week and couldn't get out to call for help

So many jokes in just that one sentence but I hope her daughter gets her a granny nanny now:

Spending four days in a tub must be draining.

82 years old? She may have wrinkled down to "invisible."

I'm sure her neighbors and daughter will now shower her with attention.

If she wasn't old I was going to say 'too fat to walk.'

"She says it's a close knit neighborhood where people look out for older residents."

It's better than 30 good years in a bathroom baby,

rub a dub dub one man in the tub and it's me

(and when I'm free I will be clean, oh yes I will be clean)

Possible her wrinkles wrinkled so badly that she ended up with the smooth skin of a 20 yo?

I didn't think so either...

I was gonna say before reading tfa, maybe it's time to invest in a rag on a stick for her bathing needs.

So the neighbors ignored this poor woman and are shocked to find out that everyone else did too?

speaking of which, why can't I find a site of two females one drinking container that's not malware infested?

It happened in America, so expect all new bathtubs to come with bright warning labels, "Warning: keep away from old people". And when you buy a new tub at Home Depot, you'll be carded to make sure you're under 65.

She probably thought she was driving her car to the buffet and got lost.

couldn't get a hold of her mother.


Look, I'm all about colloquial speech, and even informal writing, or for effect in literature, but when did journalists lose the ability to write correct English?

I was actually hoping this thread would go the other way: a "hot girls taking bubble baths" thread. I'll start us off:

Most definitely NSFW (new window)

Thanks for showing our age! Yours for providing the thought and mine for remembering that I watched that episode (and not on nick at night).

Reminds of something they had on Rotten.com a whole ago.

Seems an older man was taking a bath, but he had a hot plate, or something like it, to heat the water. Well, the old man dies in the tub, no one found him for sometime. Bascially, he slow cooked in the tub. The article with the pictures stated the tub was full of a gray goop. When they tried to remove him from the tub, the flesh fell off the bone.

ImpromptuRhymes: "She says it's a close knit neighborhood where people look out for older residents."

ha, sure sounds like it.


I came here to say that. My elderly neighbor fell in her bathroom last year. Her absence was noted after only a couple of hours. Another concerned neighbor knocked on the door and tried to get in when she didn't answer. Said neighbor ended up calling the lady's daughter who came to check on her. She had been on the floor since the night before. She was scared and cold, but that's better than dead and cold if someone hadn't called the daughter or police sooner.

She moved into an assisted care home after she was released from the hospital, and even a year later the neighbors still call her to see how she's doing and chat.

At one point, I worked for the dude who started that company. I suppose I won't surprise anyone if I said he was an obnoxious asshole.
