હાસ્ય દરબાર

ગુજરાતી બ્લોગ જગતમાં રોજ નવી જોક અને હાસ્યનું હુલ્લડ

ડોક્ટરનુ બીલ

સાભાર – ડો. કનક રાવળ 

ડોક્ટરો બહુ મોંઘા હોય છે – પણ આ ડોક્ટરના નિષ્ણાતો જેટલા નહીં. વાર્તા અંગ્રેજીમાં  જ મસ્ત જામે છે…

A Full Diagnosis

 

A woman brought a very limp duck to a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, “I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.”

 
The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?
 
“Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead,” replied the vet.
 
“How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean  you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”
 
The vet sighed, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put  his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out  of the room. A few minutes later he returned with  a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry,  but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.”
 
He turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman. The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!” she cried, “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead?!?”
 
The vet shrugged. “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $150.”

    The bill came with payment coupons.
    Your Doberman just ate the receptionist.
    “He has a very rare blood type. It’s called ‘$$ Positive.'”
    He starts talking about extended quality of life, miracles of modern veterinary medicine and joint replacement procedures. You own a goldfish.
    They take away the blood sample on a sterling silver serving tray.
    The sad, pathetic whining in the exam room is coming from the owners.
    You suddenly realize where you’ve heard that low whistle before: from the plumber and the auto mechanic.”Do you have any idea how expensive hamster defibrillators are?”
    and the #1 Sign Your Veterinary Bill is Going to Require Financing:
    “We can rebuild him. Make him stronger, faster….”
