Domestic abuse has had a negative impact on several people in Nigeria. Such abuse is frowned upon in every ramification and mustn’t be encouraged. This joke does not in any way encourage violence against women.
A lady went to the hospital after she was beaten by her husband. She said that her husband was ordinarily a good man who cares for her and her children, but whenever he goes out and has a couple of beers, he beats her up mercilessly when he returns. The doctors and nurses were all furious at what happened, they encouraged her to thread carefully and gave her some medication for the pain so she can heal smoothly.
In a week, the lady returned to the hospital, and this time, she came with different bruises all over her body. The doctor looked at her for some minutes and promised to give her a solution to her problem. The poor women sat and listened carefully as the doctor gave her a prescription to solve the problem.
“Before he comes back from his drinking spree, prepare some green tea and when he enters, start sipping the hot tea gently. Sip it till he goes to bed.”
The doctor advised. The woman was confused about the process but went home to prepare everything just in time for her husband’s arrival. She bought green tea from a supermarket and poured the tea into a flask. Immediately her husband returned, she poured the tea into the cup and began sipping as the doctor prescribed. After everything, her husband went straight to bed without even realizing she was there.
The woman was ecstatic and ran to the hospital the next day to speak to the doctor. She happily informed the doctor that his prescription worked and wanted to know how the doctor knew it would work.
The doctor responded saying, “I can see that you took my advice, the result is exactly what happens when you remain silent for a few minutes.”
