It’s important to be humble and accept that you don’t always have the right answer to everything, and that you don’t have some special access to the truth that other people don’t. This is one such story.
We all like to think that our way of looking at the world is the only right way, but to err is human, and nobody is perfect. The woman in this story sure can attest to that!
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 a problem.
One day she goes to the doctor and says, “I have this problem with gas, but it really doesn’t bother me too much. My farts never smell and are always silent.“
The doctor replies, “Is that so?”
Betty 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, “I see. 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.”
