Day Brightener – Psychiatrist vs Bartender

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him: “I’ve got problems.  Every time I go to bed, I think there’s somebody under it.  I’m scared.  I think I’m

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the shrink.  “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”

“Eighty dollars per visit,” replied the doctor.

“I’ll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street.  “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having”? he asked.

“Well, eighty bucks a visit, three times a week for a year, is $12,480.00.  A bartender cured me for $10.00.  I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup truck.”

“Is that so?”  With a bit of an attitude he said, “And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the damn legs off the bed.  Ain’t nobody under there now.”

It’s always better to get a second opinion
