Friday humor

    Boy, if  this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what  does!
    Two  patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same  complaint.  Both have trouble walking and appear to require a  hip replacement. 

    The FIRST patient is  examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time  booked for surgery the following week. 

    The SECOND sees his family  doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks  to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for  another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from  then.
    Why the different treatment for the two patients?

    The  FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
    The  SECOND is a Senior  Citizen.
    Next time  take me to a vet!

Yes! It's true. But it's the reality of life and we have nothing to do with it.
