You know 'em, you love 'em and you've been wondering where are all the Reader's Digest rejects that she talked about way back when.
Well, here's another one.
My slightly hearing-impaired, frustrated friend complains to his wife.
"I don't trust doctors. You go in for one thing and before you know it, they send you to specialists for all kinds of tests. The doctor said, 'you have blood in your urine; you have to see a urologist.'"
"You complain about your hearing and they end up looking at the other end?" she asks, puzzled by this development.
So she phones the doctor's office and the receptionist chuckles while relaying this message. "The doctor said to your husband, 'you have blood in your ear; you have to see an audiologist.'"
