Day Brightener – Always Get A Second Opinion

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 going crazy.

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 I asked?

One hundred fifty 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, $150 a visit, three times a week for a year, is $23,400.  A bartender cured me for $10.00.  I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought 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 legs off the bed.  Ain’t nobody under there now.

It’s always better to get a second opinion.
