Never Upset A Nurse

It’s difficult to imagine any profession more challenging than nursing. These folks are often forced to work all sorts of odd hours and can rack up an insane amount of hours every week. As a result, they usually have to sacrifice a lot of personal time with friends and family to help doctors save lives. And these hard workers are hardly ever compensated anywhere near what their heroic efforts deserve. Plus, nurses are usually on their feet most of the day while staying focused and alert, which means they are likely in some degree of pain during their shift. In this joke, one very arrogant patient learns why it’s never a good idea to mess with your nurse.

A bigshot 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 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 curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door, laughing.

After a half 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, “Not with a carnation.”
