87 year old lady goes to doctor with a strange problem – gets helped in an unexpected way

We all like to think that we alone see the world like it really is. But it’s important to sometimes take a step back, be humble and realize that even though we feel strongly about something, that doesn’t mean that we know the absolute truth.

Sometimes we realize that we’ve been going about something wrong, or changed our mind regarding something. It happens to us all – in fact, often several times a day.

We all make mistakes, and to err is human, and this is one such story. A little old lady goes to the doctor with a strange problem, but she had no idea things would turn out this way!

If this story made you smile, feel free to share it – laughter is the best medicine!

Betty was a little old lady who was always cheerful and quite happy with her life, but lately she had started having a bit of an embarrassing problem.


One day she goes to the doctor and says, “I have this problem with gas, but it’s not a big deal. I’m fortunate, because, my farts never smell and are always silent.“

The doctor replies, “Is that so?”

Betty smiles and continues, “Yes! As a matter of fact, I’ve farted at least 20 times since I’ve been here in your office. You didn’t know I was farting, because they don’t smell and are silent.”

The doctor says, “Oh, I see. Well, take these pills and come back to see me next week.”

Betty goes home and takes her pills as prescribed, and suddenly she starts seeing some big changes in her everyday life. The next week she comes back to the doctor.

“Doctor,” she says, “I don’t know what the hell you gave me, but now my farts… although still silent… stink terribly.”

The doctor nods and says, “Good! Now that we’ve cleared up your sinuses, let’s work on your hearing.”

SHARE if you laughed!
