My Wife’s Shrink

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my
bed at night.   My wife just raved about her shrink, so I went to see her guy.

“I’ve got problems”, I blurted out.   “Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody
under it.   I’m scared.   I think I’m going crazy.”

The shrink thought for a moment and said, “Just put yourself in my hands for one year.   Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

I asked, How much do you charge?”

The good doctor replied, “One hundred fifty dollars per visit.”

I thought for a moment and said, “Let me sleep on it.”

Six months later the doctor met me on the street.   He asked me,
“Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having?”

I replied, “Well, $150 a visit, three times a week for a year, is $23,400.   A
bartender cured me for $10.   I was so happy to have saved all that
money that I went and bought a new pickup truck.”

The shrink, with a little bit of an attitude, asked,
“Is that so?   And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

I replied,“He told me to cut the legs off the bed.   Ain’t nobody under there now.”

It’s always better to get a second opinion.
