Time to take your temp.

    When you're hospitalized, it pays to be nice to your nurse, even when
    you're feeling miserable. A bossy businessman learned the hard way after
    ordering his nurses around as if they were his employees. But the head
    nurse stood up to him.
    One morning she entered his room and announced, "I have to take
    your temperature."
    After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed
    his arms and opened his mouth. "No, I'm sorry, the nurse stated, "but
    for thisreading, I can't use an oral thermometer."
    This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over
    and bared his bottom. After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he
    heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay just like that
    until I get back!"
    She left the door to his room open on her way out, and he cursed under
    his breath as he heard people walking past his door laughing. After
    almost an hour, the man's doctor came into the room. "What's going on here?"
    asked the doctor.
    Angrily, the man answered, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever
    seen someone having their temperature taken?" "Yes," said the doctor.
    "But never with a carnation."
