"Cured her hiccups though, didn't it?"
More and more doctors are running their practices like an assembly lines. One fella 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 aid 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 the 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?"
Don't Make a Nurse Angry:
A big shot business man 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 employees. 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 cannot use an oral thermometer." This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his rear end. 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 leaves the door to his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door laughing. After almost an hour, the man's doctor comes into the room. "What's going on here?" asked the doctor.Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?"
After a pause, the doctor confesses, "Well, no. I guess I haven't.
Not with a carnation anyway.
A little woman called Mount Sainai Hospital. She said "Mount Sainai Hospital? Hello, Darling. I'd like to talk with
the person who gives the information about the patients. But I don't want to know if the patient is better or doing like expected, or worse. I want all the information from top to bottom, from A to Z." The voice on the other line said "Would you hold the line please, that's a very unusual request." Then a very authoritative voice came on and
said, "Are you the lady who is calling about one of the patients?" She said: "Yes, darling! I'd like to know the information about Sarah Finkel in Room 302." He said "Finkel. Finkel. Let me see. Farber, Feinberg -- Finkel. Oh
yes, Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her doctor says if she continues improving as she is, he is going to send her home Tuesday at twelve o'clock." The woman said "Thank God! That's wonderful! She's going home at twelve o'clock! I'm so happy to hear that. That's wonderful news." The guy on the other end says: "From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be one of the close family."
She said "What close family? I'm Sarah Finkel!! My doctor

A man is sitting at home one evening when the doorbell rings. When he answers the door, a 6 foot tall cockroach is standing there. The cockroach punches him between the eyes and takes off. The next evening, the man is sitting at home when again, the doorbell rings. He answers the door, the cockroach is there again. This time, it punches him, kicks him and karate chops him and runs away. The third evening, the man is sitting at home when the doorbell rings.

"Yes, there is a nasty bug going around."
According to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with an unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirrors leaving dozens of little lip prints. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the custodian. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every day. To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the custodian to clean one of the mirrors. He took out a long-handled brush, dipped it into the toilet and scrubbed the mirror.
Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

life." The doctor asked, "What makes you say that?" The old man replied, "If I didn't live a good, clean life the Lord wouldn't turn the bathroom light on for me every time I get up in the middle of the night."
The doc was concerned. "You mean when you get up in the night
to go to the bathroom, the Lord Himself turns on
the light for you?"
"Yep," the old man said, "Whenever I get up to go to the bathroom, the Lord turns the light on for me."
Well, the doctor didn't say anything else, but when the old
man's wife came in for her check up, he felt he had
to let her know what her husband said. "I just want you to know," the doctor said. "Your husband's in fine physical shape but I'm worried about his mental condition He told me that every night when he gets up to go to the bathroom, the Lord turns the light on for him."
"He what?" she cried.
"He said every night when he gets up to go to the bathroom, the Lord turns the light on for him."
"Aha!!!" she exclaimed. "So he's the one who's been peeing
in the refrigerator!"
The woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several
months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he
came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.
As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, "My dearest, you have
been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to
support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you
were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my

"What dear?" she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with
"I think you're bad luck."

One said, "Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my
hand in front of the refrigerator and can't remember whether I need
to put it away, or start making a sandwich." The second lady chimed
in, "Yes, some times I find myself on the landing of the stairs and
