An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s clinic. Get your treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000.”
Doctor Young — who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine — thought this would be a great opportunity to get $$. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.
Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?”
Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.” Dr. Young: Aaagh !! — “This is gasoline!” Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”
Dr. Young got annoyed and went back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money. “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything, Dr. Young said to Dr. Geezer.” “Nurse,” said Dr. Geezer, “please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.” When Dr. Young tasted it he cried, “Oh, no you don’t, that is Gasoline!” Dr. Geezer immediately said, “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back . That will be $500.”
Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) left angrily and came back after several more days. He told Dr. Young, “My eyesight has become weak, I can hardly see anything! Dr. Geezer replied, “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, ” Here’s your $1000 back.” Dr. Geezer then handed Dr. Young a $10 bill. “But this is only $10!” cried Dr. Young. “Congratulations,” replied a gleeful Dr. Geezer. “You got your vision back! That will be $500.”
Moral of this story: Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer.”
Remember: Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to tick us off.
