The Kopi Man

1Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night.

So I went to a psychiatrist and told him. . . ‘I’ve got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared.. I think I’m going crazy.’

‘Just put yourself in my hands for one year,’ said the psychiatrist.

‘Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears..’

How much do you charge?’

$500 per month,’ replied the expert.

‘I’ll sleep on it,’ I said.

Six months later, he met me on the street. ‘Why didn’t you ever come to see me about those fears you were having?’ he asked.

‘Well, $500 a month to visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A kopi man cured me for $1.20. I was so happy to have saved all that cash that I went and bought myself a new i-phone’

‘Is that so?’ With a bit of an attitude he said, ‘and how, may I ask, did a kopi man cure you?’

‘He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain’t nobody under there now!’

FORGET THOSE LEARNED DOCTORS…

GO HAVE A HOT DRINK & TALK TO YOUR KOPI MAN
