In a small town ,an epidemic of cold and cough spread so quickly that the local pharmacy could not meet the demand for cough medication. They ran out.
While pharmicist Jones was in the back calling his supplier, another customer came in seeking cough relief. Assistant Joe waited on him, rang up a sale and the customer left. "What did you sell him", pharmacist Jones asked his assistant? "A laxative", replied Joe. "Laxative , that won't help a cough" said Jones." Yes it will" said the assistant, "I told him to drink the whole bottle and now he's afraid to cough"
