Bartender vs Psychiatrist

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night.


So I went to a shrink and told him:  “I’ve got problems.  Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it.  I’m scared. I think I’m going crazy.”


“Just put yourself in my care 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.


 “I’ll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor saw 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$12,480.00.   A bartender cured me for $10.00.  I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup truck.”


“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.”
