I have tried several careers. Imagine my surprise when now working as a recovery nurse, a patient woke after surgery and called out, "What are you doing? You just helped me choose our interior paint colours!"
At a new dentist I was given a couple of forms to fill out. As I signed the first one, I joked with the receptionist: "Suppose this says that even if you pull my head off, I can’t sue?"
"No,” she says, “That’s on the next sheet - this one guarantees you still pay us."
The other day I went for another blood test and warned the nurse that my veins are not easy to find.
“Oh, you should be fine” she confidently says. “It can’t be worse than this, last year I had a guy come in which I had to stick multiple times in four places before getting anything at all!”
“Yes I know, that was me!”
Not Too Far
A patient was filling out a form in our surgery the other day and one of the questions was "Nearest relative?"
She put "Walking distance."
Suffering from a simple cold, a hypochondriac visits his doctor and asks to be healed.
The doctor says "Go home, take a hot bath, open your window and then stand in the breeze."
"But I’ll get pneumonia!" the patient protests.
"I know. That I can cure."
Two guys were hiking in the woods when one was bitten on the rear by a snake. The other urgently calls a doctor who tells him to “Get a knife, cut a little X where the bite is and suck out the poison.”
His friend, who is in agony calls out “What did the doctor say?”
“He says you’re going to die.”
Doing her rounds, a new nurse couldn’t help overhearing the surgeon saying, "Typhoid! Tetanus! Measles!"
"Why does he keep doing that?" she asked a colleague.
"Oh, he always calls the shots around here."
The Doctor asks his patient, "What do you want first, the good news or the bad news?"
The patient replies, "Give me the good news."
The Doctor says, "You’re about to have a disease named after you."
As I was admitted to the hospital, the clerk asked for my wrist, saying, "I’m going to give you a bracelet."
"Has it got rubies and diamonds?" I asked lightly.
"No," he said. "But it will cost nearly as much."
Bad Luck Name
I went to an Army Medical Centre for a heart bypass operation and discovered my surgeon’s name was Dr. Error.
"What a name for a doctor," I said, not sure whether to laugh or cry.
"Yes," he agreed. "You can imagine the reactions I had when I was a Major."
