Bubba Had Shingles: A Little Southern Humor to Cut the Tension…

11 Aug

Maybe Bubba’s experience helps to explain why our health care costs are so high:

Bubba walked into a doctor’s office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Bubba said, “Shingles.” So she wrote down his name and address, made a copy of his insurance card and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later a nurse’s aide came out and asked Bubba what he had. Bubba said, “Shingles.” So she wrote down his height and weight, took a complete medical history and told Bubba to wait in the examining room.

Half an hour later a nurse came in and asked Bubba what he had. Bubba said, “Shingles.” So the nurse drew Bubba’s blood, checked his blood pressure, and hooked him up for an electrocardiogram. Afterwards, she told Bubba to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor, who would be in shortly.

An hour later the doctor came in and found Bubba sitting patiently in the nude. He asked Bubba what he had, and Bubba said, “Shingles.” The doctor asked, “Where?”

Bubba said, “Outside on the truck. Now where do you want me to unload ’em?”
