Something funny happened at the flu shot clinic today.....

  1. 3
    I was preparing to give a flu shot to a cute little old man. He had on a long sleeved shirt- the kind that the pt needs to take off in order to get the shot.
    When he was stripping off his shirt, the little old man said to me "This reminds me of my days as a Chippindale dancer."
    The other nurse and I were cracking up!

    oh my gosh, i just flashbacked to a saturday noc live skit, w/chris farley and patrick swayze auditioning as chippendale dancers.
    the skit is priceless...
    and especially appreciate it since farley and swayze, have since passed away.
    to get to where the funny stuff begins, you can forward it to 40-45 seconds.

    enjoy.

    Well not a flu shot story but a shot story none the less! I posted this in another forum too.

    I was going to give an IM injection of a med in the thigh and the patient wasn't too sure about that. So I said to my male patientv"take off your pants and underwear and let me see what you got!" referring to the gluetus. Boy that was embarrassing.

    I was giving a flu shot to a little old guy, and he was reminiscing about how much he had hated shots as a kid, but the people giving the shots used to tell him, "Look! A rabbit just ran across the room!" and he always fell for it, thus being distracted. He still hates needles, so when I gave him his shot I said "Look! A rabbit just ran across the room!" and he actually laughed and then asked "When are you going to give me the shot?" I smiled and said "I already did."
