Dentistry - Jamaican style (Joke)
Very funny, you'll love it. Ronald, one of my ardent subscribers, sent this one to me via email and I really cracked up. I really needed this one at the moment.
I will have to keep this in mind if my tooth cracks :-)
A Jamaican went to a dentist for a tooth extraction and first inquired about the cost.
The dentist said $1200, which the Jamaican thought was too much.
After some thought, he asked about cheaper methods.
The dentist said it can be done without anesthesia and will cost only $300, but it would be very very painful.
The Jamaican said "OK doc, do it without anesthesia".
The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia and during the entire procedure the Jamaican sat quietly, even smiling a little.
The dentist was not only surprised, but was quite impressed and said,
"I have never seen such a brave patient like you. I don't even want my fees, instead, take the $300 as a reward, you've taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one's pain and feelings".
In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about his amazing patient.
One of the dentists from the group jumped up and shouted,
"That Jamaican first came to me, I gave him anesthesia and asked him to wait outside for half an hour.After half an hour when I called him he had left" !
