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 walked 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 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 before?”
After a pause, the doctor replies, “Yes, but never with a daffodil!”

I don't know if it's the hour of the flower that's the funniest part of this story.
It's just funny either way. 🙂
I laughed out loud when I read this one. Serves him right. 🙂
LMAO serves him right :-f
Have a bloomintastic week :-h
There are so many of these clods too. Yes, serves him right. 🙂
Oh my COD, that is funny. Got what he deserved. Well done Nurse. Sandee, you have a great great day and Zane too and also that Little Bit
A very smart nurse. 🙂
Nurse sure have to deal with a lot of "daffodil" on the job.
Yes they do Jean, yes they do. 🙂
Ha,ha,ha. It's funny when I read it the first time and it's still funny now. I got to thinking about when I was in the hospital last year. I wonder if that laughing down the hall was about the patient like him. Ha,ha,ha. Have a wonderful Tuesday Sandee. See ya.
Thanks for letting me repost this over here Paul. 🙂
just shows ya that the grouch should have used a bit of sugar rather than vinegar in his behavior! Very funny!
Yes he should have Kathe. Shame on him. 🙂
A bloomin' idiot 😉
No pun intended I'm sure. 🙂
He got a truer reading there than in the mouth.
Oh you are so right about that. 🙂
Heeheehee! Good for her!
Yes indeed. One smart nurse. 🙂
She's a smart one for sure. 🙂
First, I'll never look a daffodils the same way 😉 Second, I believe nurses are angels on earth and I would never cross them… doctors yes, nurses no. Doctors come in for 2 minutes, but the nurses are there all day long.
You are so right about the nurses are there all day long. 🙂
That is cruelty…to daffodils.
It is isn't it. Good point Joe. 🙂
lol that was a good one, I agree with cube I was in the hospital 2 weeks and most of the nurses were angels-one young lady took her break to come show me clips of castle because she knew I like that show 🙂
I love the nurses. They are always so nice. They work very hard too. 🙂
Don't mess with nurses…they get the last laugh! Good one.
Big hugs to you, lotsa scritches to LB, honey…
And she got the last word too. 🙂
BWAHAHA!! Always be nice to your nurses!
Yes, always be nice to your nurses. 🙂
My thoughts exactly. 🙂
I was not expecting that. LOVE it.
I'll bet you know big shots that act this horribly too. Don't we all. 🙂
He's going to sue her. -_- 😀 🙂
Well yes, but it's still funny and I'm taking her side on this one. 🙂
Me too. 😉
🙂 🙂 🙂
Hahaha! Again I needed a giggle and you provided it! 🙂
Hope you are having a wonderful Tortie Tuesday! Smooches to Little Bit!
We are having a most wonderful Tortie Tuesday. Yes indeed. 🙂
Not a pretty picture.
No it isn't Binky. Not pretty at all. 🙂
He better watch out for Bees
Bees and all the other nurses too. 🙂
