A woman goes to the doctor to get some medication for her elderly husband. She's given some pills and is told that he should take two every Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday and skip the remaining days in the week. A month later the woman returns to the doctor to tell that her husband has died of a heart attack. 'I don't understand it,' says the doctor. 'His heart hasn't bothered him before. I hope it wasn't a side effect of the medication.' 'Oh no,' replies the wife. 'The pills did him good, it was the skipping that killed him.'
Very Busy Doctor
A young doctor had just opened office and felt really excited. His secretary told him a man was here to see him. The young doctor told her to send him in.
Pretending to be a busy doctor, he picked up the phone just as the man came in. "Yes, that's right. The fee is $200. Yes, I'll expect you ten past two. Alright. No later. I'm a very busy man."
He hung up and turned to the man waiting. "May I help you?"
"No," said the man, "I just came in to install the phone."
