I mentioned a few days ago that medics don't find jokes about allergies funny when they are in the process of sticking a needle in your arm. So, I thought you might like to hear about the kinds of things they do find funny.
A few days ago, I went in for a flu shot. The medic loads up the needle, and says:
"You know, it's a good thing we aren't in the states."
"Well, we ran out of the flu vaccine, so we're having to use the local Hadji copy."
Yesterday, I was sitting out back minding my own business, smoking a cigarette, and one of my medic buddies comes out with a pad of paper and a pen:
"Hey, I need your last name, first name, and social on here."
"What's that for?"
"Well, the aid station seems to have lost the info for the day you got your flu shot, so we have to recollect all of it."
It failed to cross my mind that he hadn't been around that day, and would have no idea when exactly I got my flu shot. I reached for the pad and pen, and promptly threw the pad across the table as the shock pen hit me.
