“$85 for an extraction, Ma’am,” was the dentists reply.
“Och huv ye nay got anything cheaper,” replies the Scottish lass getting agitated.
“But that’s the normal charge for an extraction, Ma’am,” replied the dentist.
“What abut if ye did nae use any anesthetic?” asked Maggie hopefully.
“Well it’s highly unusual, Ma’am, but if that’s what you want, I suppose I can do it for $65.”
“What abut if ye used one of ye dentist trainees and still wi’ too anesthetic?” asked the Scottish lass.
“Well it’s possible, but they are only training and I can’t guarantee their level of professionalism
It’ll be a lot more painful, but I suppose in that case we can bring the price down to say $40.”
“Och that’s still a bit much, how ab too if ye make it a training session and have yon student do the extraction and the other students watching’ and learning’?”
The dentist replied, “Well OK it’ll be good for the students, I suppose
I’ll charge you only $5 in that case, but it will be a traumatic experience.”
“Now yer talking’ laddie! It’s a deal,” said Maggie.
“Can ye book the hubby in for next Wednesday?”
