Seek Advice From Bartenders, Not a Shrink

My mother sent me this interesting perspective on why you should seek real advice from a good bartender rather than a shrink.

Seek Advice From Bartenders, Not a ShrinkMy mother sent me this interesting perspective on why you should seek real advice from a good bartender rather than a shrink. The original author is unknown.

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 for advice about my problem.

I 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 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?” I asked.

“Eighty dollars per visit”, replied the doctor.

“I’ll sleep on 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 $12,480. A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I bought myself a new pickup truck.”

“Is that so?” With a bit of an attitude he continued, “And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?

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

So, forget the shrinks. Have a drink and talk to a bartender. Besides, it’s always better to get a second opinion.
