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 barred his behind.
After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, ‘I have to get something. Now you just stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back.’
She left the door to his room open on her way out. Her 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, ‘What’s the matter, Doc? Haven’t you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?’
After a pause, the doctor confessed……..
‘NOT WITH A CARNATION!’
So there you have it folks, NEVER tick off a nurse!! You never know what they’ll do!!!
