BAD CASE OF GRAMMAR

Tokan Dadyoke, email

A PREGNANT woman hobbled into the hospital with one hand on her back. A nurse asked her what the matter was. The pregnant woman screamed: “Shouldn’t! Wouldn’t! Didn’t!”

The nurse was taken aback. “I’m sorry, I don’t understand.” The pregnant woman’s face contorted in pain, and she shouted: “Can’t! Won’t! Don’t!”

The nurse was alarmed and turned to a doctor for help.

“It’s all right, nurse,” the doctor said. “She’s just having contractions.”
