Doc on Call

Old Dr. Carver still made house calls. One
afternoon he was called to the Tuttle house.
Mrs. Tuttle was in terrible pain. The doctor came
out of the bedroom a minute after he'd gone in
and asked Mr. Tuttle, "Do you have a hammer?"

A puzzled Mr. Tuttle went to the garage, and
returned with a hammer. The doctor thanked
him and went back into the bedroom. A moment
later, he came out and asked, "Do you have a
chisel?" Mr. Tuttle complied with the request.

In the next ten minutes, Dr. Carver asked for
and received a pair of pliers, a screwdriver and
a hacksaw. The last request got to Mr. Tuttle. He
asked, "What are you doing to my wife?"

"Not a thing," replied old doc Carver. "I can't get
my instrument bag open."
