New Bathtub test for entry to care homes

Will you pass the test?

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, “How do you determine whether  or not an older person should be put in an old people’s home?”
“Well,” he said, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a  teacup and a bucket to the person and ask them to empty the bathtub.”  
“Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket  because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”
“No” he said. “A normal person would pull the plug. 
“Do you want a bed  near the window?”
