The "Young Urban Professional" was impatient, self-important, and demanding. He was not well liked by anyone who had to deal with him.
So, it was unhappy news for the staff at his Doctor's office when they saw his name on the appointment roster for the day. He arrived as expected, grumbling about delays before he had even checked in. The nurse (who had drawn the short straw) ushered him to the examination room as soon as possible to get his vital signs, patiently enduring the verbal indignities he spewed. She informed him that today his temperature would need to be taken rectally, instructing him drop trou and lay prone on the exam table. Still blustering, he complied, and after assuming the position he felt the expected insertion but was surprised when the nurse announced "The Doctor will be with you shortly" and left the room - without removing what she had inserted! Furthermore, she forgot to close the door!
Vowing to file a complaint and take his business elsewhere, our self-imagined VIP waited like that for what seemed an eternity, further annoyed by the occasional sound of giggling from the hallway.
The Doctor arrived, and began to introduce him self but was interrupted "Hi, I'm Doctor ...."
"What's WRONG with your staff, Doctor?? Haven't they ever seen someone having his temperature read??"
Calmly the Doctor replied "Well, of course ... but not usually with a geranium."
