A doctor once told me about one of his outpatients who suffered from the disease of eloquence:
"Please sit down," the doctor told him.
"Why should I?" the patient asked. "Are you going to deprive me of my right not to sit down?"
The doctor could say nothing but offered him a glass of water."Have some water then.”
The patient retorted, “This is lop-sided talk, so it is absurd. Not all water is drinkable. If you put some potassium cyanide in it, it will be undrinkable. "
The doctor said, "I didn't put any poison in it. Please rest assured."
"Who said you put poison in it?
Do you mean to say that I am lodging a false accusation against you?
Has it been written at the indictment of the procurator that you have put poison in the water?
I didn't say you had put poison in it, but you claimed that I said you had put poison in it. So you have indeed put in more poisonous poison against me!"
The doctor could not but heave a sigh and switched to another topic, “It's fine today.”
The patient replied, "Nonsense! The fact that it is fine here doesn't mean that it is fine everywhere else in the world. At the North Pole, for example, it must be freezing, with strong winds, long nights and icebergs colliding with one another. . . "
The doctor couldn't help but retorted, " Here is not the North Pole."
The patient argued, “You can't deny the existence of the North Pole. If you do, you'll be distorting facts with ulterior motives."
Finally the doctor begged him, "Just go away."
