#FF - Fun Friday Post - Adversarial Prospects

Sometimes you have to get creative when prospects are trying to trick you.

A retired physician, Doctor Gordon Geezer, became very bored in retirement and decided to re-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 Digger 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:
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 tick us off.
