An old man, who had been a retired farmer for a long time, became very bored 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 anything about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to make a fool out of him and get an easy $1,000.
This is what happened:
“Dr. Geezer,” Dr. Young said as he came in the clinic, “I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?”
“Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth,” Dr. Geezer requested.
“Aagh!” Dr. Young sputtered. “This is gasoline!”
“Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”
Dr. Young, irritated, left in a haste. Angry now, he spent the next few days trying to figure out a way to recover his money. He returned to Dr. Geezer’s office once he came up with a clever plan…
“I have lost my memory,” he announced. “I cannot remember anything.”
“Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”
“Oh no you don’t. That is gasoline!” Dr. Young countered.
“Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”
Dr. Young, after having lost $1,000 total, leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.
“My eyesight has become weak. I can hardly see!”
“Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so… Here’s your $1,000,” Dr. Geezer conceded.
“But this is only $500…” Dr. Young said.
“Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”
Wow! Don't mess with the geezers! SHARE this post if you agree!
