A Scare at the Doctor's Office!

I decided today was a good day to get my annual physical exam over with. They tell you to fast which always sucks. I manage to get to the doctor's office early. I didn't mean to, I overestimated traffic. I was hoping getting their early would also get me in and out early. It didn't. They finally call me in and I get weighed and blood pressure read. The nurse takes out that paper gown and tells me to put it on. She then takes out a pair of latex gloves and paper towels and puts them on a counter. She then squirts a glob of lubricating jelly onto the paper towel. I'm staring wide eyed and jawed. I'm thinking whatever I did, whatever I said I'm sorry and I take it back. I'm also uttering "damn damn damn damn!"

The doctor finally comes in. I nod towards that and ask if it's what I think it is. He looks and laughs. They don't do that until you're 50 he tells me. I breathed the biggest sigh of relief. Good thing she didn't lay that out then take my blood pressure!

LOL That would be a scare, especially if the nurse was putting on the gloves, I would ask her if she had been stopped by the police recently.....

One reason I always give doctors and nurses a little 'professional courtesy'!!!
