WHY OUR HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE SO HIGH!!!



Bubba had shingles. 
Those of us who spend much time in a doctor's office should appreciate this! Doesn't it seem more and more that physicians are running their practices like an assembly line?
Here's what happened to Bubba:

Bubba walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Bubba said: 'Shingles.' So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later a nurse's aide came out and asked Bubba what he had.
Bubba said, 'Shingles' So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Bubba to wait in the examining room.

A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Bubba what he had. Bubba said, 'Shingles..' So the nurse gave Bubba a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Bubba to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

An hour later the doctor came in and found Bubba sitting patiently in the nude and asked Bubba what he had.

Bubba said, 'Shingles.' The doctor asked, 'Where?'
Bubba said, 'Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload 'em??'

Thanks Russell

  1. Sorry Woodsterman; but I'm gonna argue this one......I'm in a bit of a funk and the coffee ain't workin'
    The fella that is the topic; should have COMPLETELY explained why he was there.....BOTH he and the stooopid workers are of a societal mix that ain't got no sense. Their situational awareness is horrendous.
    Just another point.....yes, doctors DO run their practices like an assembly line. Once the docs offloaded the "running" of their practices to a business office.....that's when the doc became an assembly line worker.
    Just so ya know, I'm an old white guy from the upper Midwest.....and I have an opinion on everything! Go ahead, just ask me!!!!

  4. Ok, This one is a Groaner. Maybe if it would have involved racism, bigotry, mysogynisms, or some non existent phobia in the punchline.

    I've stamped your card for 10 points anyway. You're well on your way to the Bentley of your choice. Just a few more points.

  7. Everyone hates grammar Nazis, I hate doing that, but everyone is a critic and sometimes it's a bit much.

Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
