A big shot attorney had to spend a couple of days in the hospital.
He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around
just like he did his staff. None of the hospital staff wanted to
have anything to do with him.
The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She came
into his room and announced, “I have to take your temperature.”
After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down,
crossed his arms and opened his mouth.
“No, I’m sorry,” the nurse stated, “but for this reading, I can’t
use an oral thermometer.” This started another round of
complaining but eventually he rolled over and bared his behind.
After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her
announce, “I have to get something. Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT
until I get back!”
She left the door to his room open on her way out. He cursed under
his breath as he heard people walking past his door, laughing.
After a half hour, the man’s doctor came into the room.
“What’s going on here?” asked the doctor.
Angrily, the man answered, “W hat’s the matter, Doc? Haven’t you
ever seen someone having their temperature taken?”
After a pause, the doctor confessed…..
“Not with a carnation.”
