Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Bill’s wife started noticing how forgetful he was becoming. Being the concerned
wife, she convinced him to see a doctor. Bill was a little worried when the doctor
came in. Sensing his patient’s nervousness, the first thing the doctor did
was to ask what was troubling him. “Well,” Bill answered. “I seem to be getting
forgetful. I’m never sure I can remember where I put the car, or whether I answered
a letter, or where I’m going, or what it is I’m going to do once I get there, if I get
there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?” The doctor thought for
a moment then answered, “Pay me in advance.” 😳
