The Only Reason Men Do Things Is Because Their Wives MAKE Them

My step-father recently went to the eye doctor for a check-up and while in the examining room, the doctor asked him what was going on. My step-father told him that he'd been having some issues with double vision and not being able to see too clearly.

"And how long has this been going on?" the doctor asked.

"A while..." my step-father hesitated.

The doctor commented on how long it had been since his last saw him and said, "So what made you come in for this visit?"

"Well...my wife made the appointment because she caught me driving with one eye."

Is this what it takes to get a man to go see a doctor once in a great while??? If it were up to him, he wouldn't have gone in until he woke up blind.

Uh, yeah, they're all like that. Shane was forced to go for a physical after 12 yrs. The doc told him he had high cholesteral. Gave him Lipitor with 12 refills. After two months, I asked Shane if he needed me to refill his script. He said, No, I'm done taking them. I said , What? You're done?

He said yeah, I took all the pills in the bottle so my cholesteral is cured.

I said, DUH, you're on it for a year. They are so dumb

It's not just the men-folk, however. My sister told me about a month ago that she's been having trouble keeping up with her leisure reading because the words on the pages seem to go all "haywire and wobbly" all the time.

My pseduo father-in-law had the same crap happen to him, he immediately made an eye dr. appt and learned that he was in the beginning stages of macular degeneration.

My sister, on the other hand won't go even after I get on her every time we talk to go. She think's she's invincible sometimes I think.
