    A bigshot business man had to spend a couple of
    days in the hospital.

    He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed
    them around just like he did his employees. None of
    the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with
    him. The head nurse was the only one who could stand
    up to him.

    One morning she came into 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 this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer.
    This started another round of complaining, but eventually
    he rolled over and bared his behind.

    After feeling the nurse make the insertion, he heard her
    announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay
    JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!" She leaves the door to
    his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath
    as he hears people walking past his door, laughing.

    After a half hour, the man's doctor comes into the room.
    "What's going on here?" asked the doctor.

    Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc?
    Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature

    After a pause, the doctor confesses, "Not with a carnation."
