Failing to deliver

I'm very disappointed with myself.

I stopped in at the hospital this afternoon to visit my mother-in-law. As I was leaving, I got in the elevator just as a man pushing a hospital gurney came out. On the gurney was resting not a patient, but a six-foot step ladder.

At the time the best I could come up with to say to the guy was, "looks like you'd better step up his treatment." I got a polite chuckle out of that. But I KNOW there's a better one out there and it bugged me the rest of the day. I'm worried this is a sign of old age, not being able to hit folks with smartass comments on a timely basis.

If you can come up with better, feel free to share.
