Read on...  ;)

--

 

An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to 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 "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.
 
This is what transpired:
 
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: "Congratulations! 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 " !

Very Funny!

 

I'm betting machoman1337 never anticipated the reaction he was going to get with his use of the term "old fashioned" people (http://fordfusionhyb...radio/?p=100516). It has now spilled over into multiple threads and we are still yucking it up over it. 

 

Don't worry machoman1337. I don't think anyone was genuinely offended and we still love you.  We're just having a little (okay, lots) of fun at your expense.  :lol:

Those young whipper-snappers these days. I'm pushing my late 60s. I still do alot of legal case work and appear in trials and do depositions. I even use all of that new-fangled technology, except for Apple products....I just don't like them.

Android ftw :) The only Apple product I have is a 2009 iPod Touch which high schoolers would probably think to be a dinosaur since it can't be updated beyond iOS 4.2. 

 

30 years from now I'm going to be grumbling over how kids these days are so obsessed with their holographic contact lenses and subdermal phone implants.

I'm still waiting for the flying cars I was promised when I was a kid! :)
