Greet Me With A Joke

Cranky people are making me cranky today.

I started the day out just fine. Happy as can be for waking up at 6 AM on a Wednesday morning.

But then as the day drug on more and more people just seem to be cranky and complaining and my genuine customer service smile started to fade and become more and more forced until it reached the point were it literally caused me to have a headache.

I was about to give up on the day and humanity in general, when a new patient walks up to my desk.

Patient: You know why they couldn't play cards on the ark?

Me: Why?

Patient: Because Noah was always standing on the deck.

Me: lol

Patient: One more for you. Where is the one place in the world you can never play cards?

Me: I don't know. Where?

Patient: The Ark. Noah's always standing on the deck.

I should have seen that one coming.

This patient really turned my day around and made me laugh.

I wish all patients would great me with a joke. That would be awesome! How could anyone be cranky if jokes and laughs were being shared just moments before you got down to business? Actually, I wish everyone would great me with a joke! It would just make life a little bit better for everyone.

Come on...hit me with your best joke!

{p.s. As this patient was being taken back for his appointment he greeted the therapist with a joke. "What did one rabbit say to the other? I don't know. I don't speak rabbit." lol...this guy is killing me!}


  1. I don't know any good jokes. Like none now that I think about it. But now I can add that patients jokes to my list of ones that I never knew.

  2. Well now you have some for next time!
