How I overcame my fear of monsters under the bed

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

So I went to a shrink with my problem.

“Doctor Shrink, I’ve got problems. Every night I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared. I think I’m going crazy!”

The shrink said, “Just put yourself in my hands for one year. I’ll schedule you for three sessions a week we should be able to  get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”

“$120 per session,” replied the  doctor.

“I’ll  sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later I ran into the shrink outside my local bar.

He asked, “Why didn’t you come to see me about  those fears you were  having?”

“Well, $120 a session three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money — $18,720 to be precise. A bartender cured me for $10! I was so happy to have saved all that money, I bought me a new pickup!”

“Is that so!,” the shrink said with a bit of  an  attitude. “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!!!”

  1. Too funny, LOL!

  2. Which is why pragmatic types are sometimes thought not to be much fun….

  3. Marvelous! It’s called common sense, which we lost a long time ago, unfortunately!

  4. 😀

  5. Practicality.

  6. When I read this it reminded me of the years when there was “a commie under every bed”. Do you remember?

    Why didn’t our leaders think of this solution then?
