Promises, Promises

    "What was your most difficult and perplexing case?" a psychiatrist asked his colleague at a convention.
    "I had one patient who believed he had a rich uncle in South America who was going to die and leave him a huge fortune," the other replied after pondering the question for a minute. "All day long he would wait for a letter form an estate attorney. He didn't have any social life, he never went out, he never did anything but sit and wait for this fantasy letter from a fantasy uncle."
    "How did it turn out?" asked the first psychiatrist.
    "I worked with him every single day for eight years," explained the other, "and I nearly had him cured, until that stupid letter arrived!"
