Sister Mary, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her
rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck
would have it a gas station was just a block away. She walked to the
station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her
the only gas can he owned had been loaned out but she could wait
until it was returned. Since the nun was on the way to see a patient,
she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for
something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the
bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful she carried
the bedpan to the station, filled it with gas, and carried the full
bedpan back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into her tank two
men watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other
and said, "If it starts, I'm turning Catholic".
