My wife and I use that as a test of a new doctor: We walk into her or
his examining room clutching our 32oz coffee cups, and if the first
remark is, "You drink too much coffee, and that is the cause of whatever
brought you here today" then we fire them. We do drink a lot of coffee,
sure enough, but we have been doing so for years, so whatever new
problem we have is due to other causes (though we admit that our coffee
consumption may exacerbate any issue).
