Guyanese can’t find a job in Barbados so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside ” GET TREATMENT FOR $20 – IF NOT CURED, GET BACK $100″
A Bajan lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic…
Lawyer: “I have lost my sense of taste”
GT: “Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in patient’s mouth”
Lawyer: “Ugh..this is kerosene”
GT: “Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20”
The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money…
Lawyer: “I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything”
GT: “Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in his mouth”
Lawyer (annoyed): “This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste”
GT: “Congrats. You got your memory back. Give me $20”
The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.
Lawyer: “My eyesight has become very weak”
GT “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that, so take this $100”
Lawyer (staring at the note): “But this is $20, not $100”
GT: “Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Give me $20”

You can’t beat a Guyanese….!
