Read the following text and answer the questions below.
It is Sunday. Tom is at the hospital. He has hurt his leg. Now he is sitting in the waiting room with his mother. The waiting room is very full. There are lots of people who want to see the doctor. After a while the doctor comes. "Who is next?" he asks.
Two men get up. One man has a black eye and he is holding his hand in a funny way. The other man has got a finger that looks broken and a very fat and red-looking ear.
"I am", they both say at the same time.
"Well, you can't both be next," says the doctor.
"But my hand is broken," says the first man. "And my finger is broken," says the second man. "But my eye! I can't see properly. I think I'm blind," shouts the first man. "What did you say? I can't hear you," shouts the second man.
"Gentlemen, please. Stop shouting! This is a hospital. Now, who is next?" "I am," say both men at the same time and go to the doctor. "Sorry, but I can only see one of you at a time," says the doctor. "That's me," says the first man and pushes the second man to the ground. The second man gets up and they start to fight. The doctor calls the hospital security* men who come and throw the men out of the hospital. But now the first man has got a bleeding nose and the second man has got a black eye.
"Well," says one of the security men. "You really know how to fight."
"Yes," says the first man, "our father taught us when we were little boys, didn't he, Mike?" "Yes, he did, Pete. And he always said I was better than you." "No, he didn't!" "Yes, he did." And with these words the two brothers start to fight again.
