Old Dr. Carver

Old Dr. Carver still made house calls. One afternoon he was called to the
Tuttle house. Mrs. Tuttle was in terrible pain. The doctor came out of the
bedroom a minute after he’d gone in and asked Mr. Tuttle, “Do you have a
hammer?”
A puzzled Mr. Tuttle went to the garage, and returned with a hammer. The
doctor thanked him and went back into the bedroom. A moment later, he came out
and asked, “Do you have a chisel?” Mr. Tuttle complied with the request.
In the next ten minutes, Dr. Carver asked for and received a pair of pliers, a
screwdriver and a hacksaw. The last request got to Mr. Tuttle. He asked, “What
are you doing to my wife?”
“Not a thing,” replied old doc Carver. “I can’t get my instrument bag open.”
