Geezer Pleaser

...treatment for $500

from Florence Shea

An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medic
clinic. He put a sign up outside his house that said: Dr. Geezer’s Clinic. Get
your treatment for $500. If not cured, get $1,000 back.

Skeeter Young, who was positive this old geezer didn’t know beans about
medicine, thought it would be a great opportunity to get an easy $1,000. So
Mr. Young went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.

Mr. 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 Mr. Young’s mouth.”

Mr. Young: “Aaagh! This is gasoline!”

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

Mr. Young, despite being annoyed, comes back after a couple days figuring
to recover his money.

Mr. 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.”

Mr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t, that is gasoline!”

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

Mr. Young, after having lost $1,000, leaves angrily, but, being very
competitive, comes back after several more days.

Mr. Young: “My eyesight has become very weak. I can hardly see anything.”

Dr. Geezer: “Well, Mr. Young, I don’t have any medicine for that issue, so,
here’s your $1,000 back,” while giving Mr. Young a $10 bill.

Mr. Young: “But, this is only $10!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations, Mr. Young! You have got your vision back. That
will be $500.”

Moral of our story: just because you are “Young” does not mean you can
outsmart an “old Geezer.”
