More and more hospitals are running their businesses like as assembly line. One fellow walked into the emergency room, and the nurse asked him what he had. He said, ‘shingles’. So she took down his name, and address and told him to have a seat.
Fifteen minutes later, a nurse’s aide came out and asked him what he had. He said once again, ‘shingles’. So she took down his height, weight and a complete medical history and told him to wait in an examining room.
Half an hour later another nurse came in and asked him what he had. He said calmly once again, ‘shingles’. So she gave him a blood test, checked his blood pressure and gave him an electrocardiogram and told him to take off his clothes and wait for the doctor.
An hour later, the doctor came in and asked him what he had. By this time the man was getting a little impatient and said again, ‘shingles’. The doctor asked, ‘where?’ The man replied, ‘outside in the truck, where do you want me to put them?’
Okay, okay, but it’s not that bad is it?
