Psychiatric Hot Line

A man experiencing a crisis in his life called the
toll-free Psychiatric Hot Line listed in the phone
directory. This is what he heard: 

"Welcome to the Psychiatric Hot Line. 
- If you are obsessive-compulsive, repeatedly press 1. 
- If you are co-dependent, ask someone to press 2. 
- If you have multiple personalities, press 3, 4, and 5. 
- If you are suffering from paranoia, we know who
you are and what you want. Stay on the line until we
trace the call. 
- If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little
voice will tell you which number to press. 
- If you are bipolar, it doesn't matter which number
you press. No one will answer. 
- If you are depressed, push any button you wish. It
won't make any difference anyhow. Thank you for
your call."
