An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to have a little fun by opening 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." To today’s youth this might be known as “trolling.”
Doctor "Young," who was positive that this old geezer was a quack who didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get the $1,000 and to embarrass the old man. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.
The visit went like this:
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 left the clinic very annoyed and went back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money. Here’s how the next visit went:
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 now lost $1000) left angrily and then returned after several more days with a new plan – and that visit went like this:
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" and confident doesn’t mean that you can outsmart a pragmatic "old Geezer"
And remember: Don’t annoy old people. They don’t much like being old in the first place, so it often doesn’t take much to tick them off.
