|A little perspective, perhaps?

From my boss:
I recently went to a new physician.
After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly Well" for my age. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"
He asked, "Do you Smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?" "Oh no," I replied. "I'm not doing drugs, either."
Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?" I said, "No, my other Doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!"
"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?" No, I don't," I said.
He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?" No," I said. "I don't do any of those things." He looked at me and said,
"Then why do you give a shit?"
