I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a psychiatrist and told him…
‘I’ve got a problem. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared….. I think I’m going crazy!’
‘Just put yourself in my hands for one year,’ said the psychiatrist, ‘Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.’
‘How much do you charge?’
‘Eighty dollars per visit,’ replied the doctor.
‘I’ll sleep on it,’ I said.
Six months later, the psychiatrist met me on the street.
‘Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having?’ he asked.
‘Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought myself a new pick-up!’
‘Is that so!’ With a bit of an attitude he said, ‘and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?’
‘He told me to cut the legs off the bed – Ain’t nobody under there now…!!!’
