Nurse Follies: There's a Distinction?

RN: Do you smoke and when was the last time?

New Patient: What? Smoked cigarettes, or smoked?

RN: Cigarettes.

NP: Yeah, I smoke cigarettes. I had some just before I came here.

RN: Okay, do you do drugs?

NP: Yeah. A couple of things.

RN: When was the last time you did drugs?

NP: You want to know when the last time I did just a little, or the last time I did drugs??

I love the ones who, when asked these questions, look at their watch to see what time it is.

I had a patient ask me if they could get Aids from a mosquito.

My response was "Only if you have unprotected sex with an infected mosquito."

It took them a while for it to sink it. Further proof that people are idiots.
