Something to think about! LOL! :eek:

> 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 need hip replacement
> surgery.
> 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 almost a year from then.
> Why the different treatment for the two patients?
> The FIRST patient is a Golden Retriever.
> The SECOND patient is a Senior Citizen.
> Next time take me to the vet!
