A man was concerned about his wife's temper and decided to visit a doctor in search of a solution. The doctor gave him an unlikely suggestion.
A man visited a doctor because he was worried about his wife's temper. When he got to the hospital, the doctor asked him what the problem was, and the man said:
"doctor, I don't know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me."

The doctor calmly replied that he had a cure for her temper. He advised the man to take a glass of water and start swishing it in his mouth whenever he noticed she was getting angry.
The doctor instructed him to continue swishing until she left the room or stopped her rant. The man returned to his house with excitement, thinking he finally figured it out.
Two weeks after his first visit, the man returned to the doctor's office looking excited and fresh as though he had just been reborn.
The man praised the doctor for his advice and called it a brilliant idea. He explained that each time his wife starts losing it, he gets a glass of water and swishes it until she goes calm.
The man took a pause and asked the doctor how a glass of water can make someone known to have a hot temper go calm in a few minutes.The doctor looked at the man with a smile and said,
"The water itself does nothing. It's keeping your mouth shut that does the trick."
The man realized the doctor had diagnosed the problem well! He understood that staying calm without responding to his wife's rants was the only way to get her to stop.
