Lateral Thinking - Fanciful

Fri Aug 15, 2008 6:18 pm  by ANTFROG2000

A woman arrives for her appointment at her local doctors. She gives her name to the receptionist and is told that the doctor is delayed as he is making some urgent telephone calls.

After waiting for a long time, the woman is eventually called into the doctors surgery. He apologised for the delay and explains his excused on the urgent calls.

A few moments later the doctor is overwhelmed with embassesment. Why?

Because it becomes apparent that he wasn't making any calls, either because she realises there is no phone in his office, or because a guy comes in saying he's there to repair the phones or something.

So, what was he really doing???

The doctor was urgently phoning all his friends to try to borrow money to pay his bookie before the bookie's associates came to break his kneecaps. The last friend he called said he could help him and would bring the money over right away. The doctor was much relieved.

After the friend hung up, he remembered he had to pay that day for the charter flight for his vacation with his wife; otherwise he would lose the hefty deposit he had already paid. He knew the doctor's problem was urgent, so he called back right away to say he could not lend the money.

The receptionist took the call, and knowing how urgent it was, burst in on the doctor with the patient. She mentioned the friend's unusual first name, and the patient was shocked because she knew the doctor was trying to borrow a large sum from her husband. The doctor was embarassed.

Also, the receptionist happened to be the doctor's wife. She was shocked to learn that the doctor had gambled away all their money. The doctor was embarassed.

Also, the doctor was embarassed because his wife had just caught him kissing the patient.

May be because the woman called him while she was waiting and his phone was not busy at all. When he sees missed calls from her - he gets embarrassed.
