A man went to the Doctor, worried about his wife’s temper.
The Doctor asked: “What’s the problem?”
The patient said: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me.”
The Doctor said: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until she either leaves the room or calms down.”
Two weeks later the man went back to the doctor looking relaxed and happy.
He said, “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”
The Doctor said: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick”.
