An old man decided to open a medical clinic to fill his time. He put up a sign that read: “get your treatment for $500 – if not cured get back $1,000.”
A confident young doctor was sure the old man knew nothing about medicine and decided it would be an easy way to make $1,000. So he went to the old man’s clinic and told him he had lost his taste.
“No problem,” the old man said. “Nurse, bring in the brown box and put 2 drops into this young man’s mouth.” The nurse did as she was told and the young doctor spat it right back out.
“This is gasoline!” he yelled.
“Congratulations! You have your taste back. That will be $500,” the old doctor said. The young doctor handed over the money and left annoyed.
The next day he came back ready to prove the old man wrong. “I’ve lost my memory. I can’t remember anything.”
The old man nodded and said to the nurse, “bring in the brown box and put 2 drops into this young man’s mouth.” Before the nurse could move, the young man protested.
“Oh no you don’t! That’s what you did last time and it was gasoline!”
“Congratulations! You have your memory back. That will be $500.” The young man left annoyed once again. He returned for the last time the next day to recover his money.
“I have lost my sight. I can’t see.”
The old man sighed, “unfortunately I have no way to treat that. So here’s your $1,000 back.” He handed the money to the young man.
The young man frowned, “But this is only $500?”
“Congratulations! You have your vision back! That will be $500.”
