Value Paid, Value Received

A demonstration of value paid and value received, thanks to Nick Boscia.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night.
So I decided to go to a pyschiatrist for find the cure.

‘I’ve got problems. Every time I go to bed 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 shrink. ‘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.
‘Let me think about it,’ I said.
Six months later the doctor 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 a new car!’
‘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!!!’

Forget the shrinks, have a Guinness and talk to your bartender.  

May your troubles be less, Your blessings be more, And nothing but happiness come through your door!
