Sunday Snark – Curmudgeon Edition

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 $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. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off !

Sunday Snark

I was cleaning up, going through old papers, when I found this email that had been sent to me:

You can get in a lot of trouble saying simple (true) things in such a way as they cannot be misunderstood.  Shame on you.  I thought people with graduate degrees all knew better than to be clear, concise, and to the point.
