Patients Say The Darnedest Things

After drawing a nice elderly man this morning, I called back his his wife for her fasting blood draw. After establishing all the usual information, the conversation turned to her marriage.

Me: So, how long have you been keeping company with that handsome guy?

Patient: Fifty-one and a half years.

Me: Oh, that's wonderful. How did you two meet?

Patient: At work. He was my boss.

Me: [laugh/pretend gasp] You naughty lady! You dated the boss!

Patient: Yes, I married "The Boss." Guess how long that lasted?

Heh. Heh heh heh.

  1. How lovely. Love seeing long married couples with a sense of humor still attached.

    Makes the day brighter, I hope.
