When Sister Marlena entered the Monastery of Silence, the Abbot said, "Sister, this is a silent monastery. You are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so." Sister Marlena lived in the monastery for 5 years before the Abbot said to her, "Sister Marlena, you have been here for 5 years you can speak two words." Sister Marlena said, "Hard bed." "I'm sorry to hear that," the Abbot said, "We will get you a better bed." After another 5 years, the Abbot called Sister Marlena into his office. "You may say another two words, Sister Marlena." "Cold food," said Sister Marlena. The Abbott assured her that the food would be better in the future... On her 15th anniversary at the monastery, the Abbott again called Sister Marlena into his office. "Two words you may say today." "I quit," said Sister Marlena. "It is probably best," said the Abbott, "You've done nothing but bitch since you got here!"
