An old geezer in retirement

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, and if not cured, get $1000 back.”

Dr Young, who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1000. So he went to Dr Geezer’s clinic.

This is what happened:

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 three drops in Dr Young’s mouth.”

Dr Young:  “Aaargh! This is gasoline!”

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

Dr Young gets annoyed and, after devising a scheme to recover his lost money, goes back after a few days.

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

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

Dr Young:  “Oh, no you don’t! That’s gasoline!”

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

Dr Young (now 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!
