White Lies Result in High Blood Pressure

  1. 9
    A man goes to a doctor for a physical checkup. The nurse starts with certain basic items.

    "How much do you weigh?" she asks.

    "One-seventy."

    The nurse puts him on the scale. It turns out that his weight is 183.

    The nurse asks, "Your height?"

    "Five-eleven."

    The nurse checks and sees that he's only 5' 8 1/2".
    he then takes his blood pressure, and it's very high.

    The man explains, "Of course it's high. When I came in here, I was tall and wiry. Now, I'm short and dumpy."
