    Two faces of doctors

    What they say versus what they're really thinking.

    "This should be taken care of right away." -- I'd planned a trip to Hawaii next month, but this is so easy and profitable that I want to fix it before it cures itself.

    "Welllllll, what have we here...?" -- He has no idea and is hoping you'll give him a clue.

    "Let me check your medical history." -- I want to see if you've paid your last bill before spending any more time with you.

    "We have some good news and some bad news." -- The good news is, I'm going to buy that new BMW. The bad news is, you're going to pay for it.

    "Let's see how it develops." -- Maybe in a few days it will grow into something that can be cured.

    "Why don't we make another appointment later in the week." -- I'm playing golf this afternoon, and this a waste of time. --I need the bucks, so I'm charging you for another office visit.

    "Let me schedule you for some tests." -- I have a forty percent interest in the lab.

    "I'd like to prescribe a new drug." -- I'm writing a paper and would like to use you for a guinea pig.

    "If it doesn't clear up in a week, give me a call." -- I don't know what it is. Maybe it will go away by itself.

    "That's quite a nasty looking wound." -- I think I'm going to throw up.

    "This may smart a little." -- Last week two patients bit off their tongues.

    "Well, we're not feeling so well today, are we...?" -- I'm stalling for time. Who are you and why are you here?

    "This should fix you up." -- The drug company slipped me some big bucks to prescribe this stuff.

    "Everything seems to be normal." -- Rats! I guess I can't buy that new beach condo after all.

    "I'd like to run some more tests." -- I can't figure out what's wrong. Maybe the kid in the lab can solve this one.

    "There is a lot of that going around." -- That's the third one this week! I'd better learn something about this.

    "If those symptoms persist, call for an appointment." -- I've never heard of anything so disgusting. Thankfully I'm off next week.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
