The New Method
More and more doctors are running their practices like an assembly
line.
One fellow walked into a doctor’s office and the receptionist asked
him what he had. He said, “Shingles.” So she took down his name,
address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.
Fifteen minutes later, a nurse’s aide came out and asked him what
he had. He said, “Shingles.” So she took down his height, weight,
a complete medical history and told him to wait in an examining
room.
A half-hour later, a nurse came in and asked him what he had. He
said, “Shingles.” So she gave him a blood test, a blood pressure test,
an electrocardiogram, told him to take off all his clothes and wait
for the doctor.
An hour later, the doctor came in and asked him what he had. He
said, “Shingles.”The doctor said, “Where?”He said, “Outside in the
truck. Where do you want them?”
The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems
at home and were giving each other the silent
treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next
day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 a.m.
for an early-morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and
LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake
me at 5:00 a.m.”He left it where he knew she would
find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to
discover that it was 9:00 a.m. and he had missed his
flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his
wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece
of paper by the bed.
The paper said, “It’s 5:00 a.m. Wake up.”
