MTL visits the dentist.

Receptionist: ‘That’s £33 please. That’s for the two of you.’

MTL: But there’s only one of me.

Receptionist: ‘No it’s for you and your wife.’

MTL: Oh did she forget to pay when she was here last week?

Receptionist: ‘No it’s for this morning – she’s sitting over there.

MTL looked over the waiting room at a strange lady sitting next to a man with a puzzled expression on her face.

MTL: ‘That’s not my wife!’

The receptionist was new but fortunately MTL remembered what I look like.

£33.00 is cheap, wife or no wife!!

Pat said...

Mapstew: great pleasure and thanks for the heads up for our mutual friend.

GG: he wouldn't dare!

Judy: yes it must have been one of hi good days:)

Queenie: you can imagine him can't you?

Parsnip: we all need the occasionally:)

John.G: it was just an inspection but as he says it was cheap with a new wife thrown in . Bargain offer.

lom said...

mmmm I wonder if I would be offered a new husband, only joking

Jimmy said...

There's not a woman in England who can hold a candle to the beauty of our Pat. The receptionist should have gone to Specsavers.

Pat said...

LOM: Might be worth a try:)

Jimmy: is there a Blarney Stone in Scotland?

Macy said...

Hi Pat I was going to say the receptionist probably had you down as his daughter...but you know better than that!

savannah said...

xoxoxox great story, sugar! ;~D

Kath said...

Oh wow! That's fantastic! Bet y'all had quite a laugh :)

Kim Ayres said...

Maggie said...

Oh, my, Oh my. What a delightful laugh you shared with us. :)

Pat said...

Macy: that would be pushing it:)

Savannah: the true ones are the best.xoxoxox

Kath: at first I wondered if he had been chatting her up!

Kim:)

Gipsywoman: I'll certainly come again;)

Maggie: I wish I'd been there to see his face.

Granny Annie said...

Were they going to charge for two just because you accompanied him or was the receptionist assuming you (rather the non-you) was going to be treated as well?

Ponita in Real Life said...

Oh, that is hilarious! Where's a video camera when you need one!?!?!?

Pat said...

Ponita: yes I have to admit I would have liked to see what the opposition looked like:)

Jimmy said...

Aye hen, but I'd rather be kissing a pretty woman rather than the cold of an oul stone.

Luna said...

Lol. Cute :0 I love your label: "One wife's enough" haha

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

LOL, LOL.....Oh Dear...Even "in person", some people just can't get it right....lol!

Pat said...

Granny Annie: according to MTL she had been treated so why she was still sitting in the waiting room is a puzzle. I wasn't present at all. confusing isn't it?

Jimmy: no surprise there;)

Luna: thanks.

Naomi: she's new and hopefully will improve with time.

Minnie said...

Lovely combination of sadness + merriment - & evoked in so few words, too.

Pat said...

Minnie: thank you;)
