Following doctor's orders can have a significant impact on your life. You might end up living a longer life, or walk straight into a joke. Here's what happened when an old man moved to a new city for better healthcare.
An old man was advised by his doctor to move to a new city. Especially because the city was renowned for having the best healthcare system in the nation.
The old man settled into a neighborhood and started going around to parks and social gatherings to make some friends. There, he met a man, Steve, who was roughly around his age.

The two men got talking about their interests, families, and love life. Finally, the conversation ended up in healthcare. After a couple of minutes of ranting about the lines at the pharmacies, the old man asked his friend:
"I moved here because my doctor says this city has the best healthcare money can buy. I'm still not so sure about it. Tell me, is this city as healthy as they say?"

Steve cloaked a mischevious laugh and said, "It sure is! When I first came here, I had no hair on my head, couldn't speak a word, and was so weak that I had to be picked up from my bed. Not to mention the plethora of diapers I had to use."
Before the old man could say anything, Steve continued, and said, "I didn't even have the strength to stand, let along walk across the room. I struggled for years before I was able to function properly."
Amazed by Steve's response, the old man said, "Wow! That's amazing! How long have you been here?" Steve looked him in the eye and casually said, "Oh, I was born here."
Time for a bonus joke! A man walked into a bar and sat there, all gloomy. The bartender asks the man what's wrong, and his answer is hilarious.

and ordered vodka with coke, he finished his drink and asked for another. This kept happening, and after about five drinks, the man finally slowed down.
The bartender walked up to him with his sixth drink and asked, "Is there something wrong, sir?" The man looked at him all sad and said, "I had an enormous argument with the wife. She said she won't speak to me for a month. I have to sleep on the couch."
The bartender sympathized with the mad and added, "Your best bet is to stop drinking, go home early, and don't let this argument cross the night. Nip it in the bud." With the same gloomy look on his face, the man said, "You don't get it, today is the last night."
