Just to pre- warn – this is a Shutter Island spoiler – although the film is so bloody old now I would imagine anyone who wanted to see it would have seen it by now – and furthermore, if you haven’t seen it, this post will make no sense to you whatsoever 😜
When the film was first released my two sons took me to see it at the Cinema. What a twist at the end of the film …………….. 😳
The following day both boys had to go to work. At this time Christian, my eldest, was 18 and working full time at a Rehabilitation Unit for adults with brain injuries. Meanwhile Cam was 16, at College and working part-time on the bread counter in Tesco.
After the late night and a tiring day for them both they were arguing over who was going to make the tea.
“I’ve been at work all day, I’m not doing it” said Christian
“I’ve also been at work all day” said his brother indignantly
Christian looked pitifully at his younger brother and said “Cameron, I work in a Brain Injuries Unit, I assist people learning to walk again, I am trained in how to deal with violent patients, I potentially save lives. With all due respect, you work on a bread counter and fill up the shelves in Tesco”
Cam looked at his older brother, put his hand on his shoulder and replied “Chris, I think you really need to be told the truth now. When you go off to work, in your nurses uniform, carrying your little sandwich box – you haven’t got a job, you don’t really work there ……” 😂😂😂
One nil to the younger brother I think 😄
