Duck at Fountain

A friend of mine was at a local hospital visiting someone when she noticed there were no ducks in the three ponds on the grounds. She asked a new nurse why there were no ducks out simply because it was a normal, sunny, balmy Summer morning, and there should be 50-100 ducks and geese in the ponds. The new nurse replied, “Oh, they gather them all up at night and put them in the parking garage. Perhaps they’re just not out yet.” I figure some seasoned worker told the new nurse this absurdity as a joke and that the nurse doesn’t know the truth to this day. One cannot “gather up” wild ducks.
