One of our friends heads up a Chiang Mai Dinning Out Group and sends out a weekily newsletter and “weekly Funnies” – some I think are really good and so I will post them throughout the blog – hope you enjoy too.
Lets kick it off with:
ADVICE FROM MEDICARE
The phone rings and the lady of the house answers. ‘Mrs. Sanders, please.’ ‘Speaking.’
‘Mrs. Sanders, this is Dr. Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
When your husband’s doctor sent his biopsy to our lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well. We are uncertain which one belongs to your husband. Frankly, either way the results are not too good.’
‘What do you mean?’ Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.
‘Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the
other one tested positive for HIV. We can’t tell which is which.’
‘That’s dreadful! Can you do the test again?’ questioned Mrs. Sanders.
‘Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay one time for these tests.’
‘Well, what am I supposed to do now?’
‘The folks at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don’t sleep with him.’
