Exasperated with obnoxious patients in the clinic where she's the office manager, my aunt put up a sign that read: "If you are grouchy, irritable, or just plain mean, there will be a $10 surcharge for putting up with you."
Clearly some people took the sign to heart. That same afternoon a patient came to her window and announced, "The doctor said he would like to see me every month for the next six months, so I'm going to pay all my $60 up front."
