  • There May Be A Simpler Way

    Ever since I was a child, I've had a fear of someone or something
    under my bed at night. So I finally went to a psychiatrist and told
    him: "I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's
    somebody or something under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy."

    "Just put yourself in my hands for one year,"
    said the psychiatrist.
    Come and see me three times a week and we should be able to get
    rid of those fears."

    "How much do you charge?"

    "Eighty dollars per visit,"
    replied the expert.

    "I'll sleep on it," I said.

    Six months later, he met me on the street.

    "Why didn't you ever come to see me about those fears you were having
    about there being someone or something under your bed?"
    he asked.

    "Well, eighty bucks three times a week for a year is an awful lot of
    money. A wine retailer cured me for nothing when I went in to buy
    a bottle of wine. I was so happy to have saved all that money that
    I went out and bought myself a new car."

    "Is that so? And how, may I ask, did a wine retailer cure you?"

    "He told me to cut the legs off the bed."

    great post!
    i guess the message from this (apart from the humor) is that it helps to think about solutions in different ways than what you'd expect - and often it'll be cheaper for you if you're more innovative too!
