Getting older

Mr. Jones moved to another town, and soon he needed a new doctor, so he went to see one. He sat down in the waiting room and looked around. The doctor´s degrees were on the wall. Suddenly Mr. Jones remembered there had been a student with the same name in his class at school, and he had become a doctor!
