    Driver takes sleeping senior citizen instead of corpse to morgue

    The resident of a Canadian nursing home might want to put a sign on her door reading: "Just Sleeping."

    Officials in Surrey, British Columbia, report a bizarre mix-up that resulted in a sleeping senior citizen being taken to the morgue. The driver for a company hired to transport bodies apparently didn't check the wrist band on the supposedly deceased resident. Instead of taking the corpse, the driver took the sleeping woman. Officials say the 87-year-old was left in a hallway at a hospital, when the mistake was discovered. She was taken back to the nursing home where officials say she's doing fine.

    Might I suggest a job change for this person? Deliver some item,(like pizza) that doesn't need to be determined if its living or not.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
