Q-Tip thermometer

Subject: Q-Tip

Last week I went to a seminar called *Stress and Disease by Dr. Nickolas


an expert in psychobiology. He gave an example of a coping skill for

job stress which I would like to share with you.

When you have had one of those TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT days, try this.

On your way home after work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the section

where they have thermometers. You will need to purchase a rectal

thermometer made by *Q-Tip. Be very sure that you get this brand.

When you get home, lock your doors, draw the drapes, and disconnect the phone

so you will not be disturbed during your therapy. Change to very comfortable

clothing, such as a sweat suit and lie down on your bed. Open the package

containing the thermometer, and remove the thermometer and carefully place it

on the bedside table so that it will not become chipped or broken. Take the

written material that

accompanies the thermometer and as you read it you will notice in small

print the

statement that "every rectal thermometer made by Q-Tip is PERSONALLY tested."

Now close your eyes and say out loud five times, "I am SO glad that I do not

work in quality control at the Q-Tip Company."

I am so glad, I am so glad, I am so glad.......

Hey, how much do they get paid? If it's more than I'm making, at least I'll make better money for getting something stuck there every day. I've worn that pack of KYjelly on my shoulder too many days.
