An Arabic family was considering putting their grandfather
(Abdullah) in a nursing home. All the Arabic facilities were
completely full so they had to put him in an Italian home.
After a few weeks in the Italian facility, they came to
visit Grandpa.’How do you like it here?’ asks the grandson.
‘It’s wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful’
‘We’re so happy for you. We were worried that this was the
wrong place for you. You know, since you are a little different
from everyone”.”Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully
they treat the residents”, Abduello says with a big smile.
‘There’s a musician here– he’s 85 years old. He hasn’t played
the violin in 20 years and everyone still calls him ‘Maestro’!
‘There is a judge in here — he’s 95 years old. He hasn’t been
on the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him ‘Your Honor’!
‘There’s a dentist here – 90 years old. He hasn’t fixed a tooth for 25
years and everyone still calls him Doctor?!’And me — I haven’t
had sex for 35 years and they still call me ‘The Fucking Arab’.”
