    Lessons in living

    The Retired Doctor

    An old physician, Doctor Gordon Geezer, became very bored in retirement and decided to re-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 Digger Young, who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. 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 gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

    Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

    Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

    Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t—that is Gasoline!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

    Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

    Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak—- I can hardly see anything!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, “Here’s your $1000 back” (giving him a $10 bill).

    Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”

    Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

    Moral of story—Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”

    Remember: Don’t make old people mad.

    ^^^ Youth and enthusiasm are no match for old age and treachery.
    MY RIGHTS DON'T END WHERE YOUR FEELINGS BEGIN

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
