That's sort of reminiscent of a book someone wrote called "It was on Fire When I Laid Down on It"

I read the introduction. He said he was struck by an interview of an old man who was pulled out of a burning house (or rest home, not sure which), which had started in his mattress.  When asked if he noticed anything unusual about the mattress before or while he was laying on it, he gave the answer above.

The author spun this into some mishmash rhapsody about how amazing it is the way old folks can just let go, not worry about things, live in the past. It's like they are on a higher plane of existence.  He thought it was wonderful.

I think the author's an idiot.  Having gone through back surgery and feeling 100 years old at the time, I know how you can feel totally worn down and tired, to the point that a little thing like a smouldering mattress just doesn't offer a present enough danger when you NEED to lie down.  Some old folks may have enough trouble dealing with the minute-by-minute challenges of life that anything that can put off to maybe 10 minutes in the future will be.

Razz I totally agree with you. Somethings you put into a priority table, a score of 1 to 10, A smouldering mattress ? with this pain ? hell, I give it a 1 & we'll see what happens Smile
