My client really needs therapy
Dear Frau Freudenschwester
What might you make of the fact that, more often than I like, I find
myself sitting with a client during a session and thinking: This
person really needs therapy.
What is this word therapy that you use? Surely you are not promising your patient a cure! Let me remind you that you are analytically bound only to guarantee common unhappiness (and, at the end of each session, a large bill). Ribi-fish, geld oyfen tish!*.
Of course, the fact that you think this ‘more often than you like’ indicates that you are talking about yourself dumkopf! You should have learned this in psychoanalytic kindergarten! I told Sigmund that he should never have visited America with that sanctimonious Jung. Those yanks were bound to have turned psychoanalysis into a fast food franchise.
Forgive me if I am a little impatient. I am still uncorking myself from my position under the boards. As you can see from my picture, they have fitted me with corrective shoes. But as they say: Beser a krumer fus eyder a krumer kop**
