flu shot anyone?

This is an email forward I got from my cousin in Naples, Fl. I thought it was pretty darn funny so added it here in case any of you needed a laugh.

I gave about 100 flu shots today. After my first initial, 'Holy Cow, I'm about to stick someone with a needle" I had a great time. Following is a conversation with one of the patients:

Patient: Great Job, I hardly felt it.
Me: (glowing....) I guess this is a good time to tell you I'm a student.
Patient: Yeah, and I guess this is a good time to tell you I'm a nurse.

hahahaha, I would have been so scared if she had mentioned she was a nurse before the shot! But a compliment from a nurse about a shot on your first day...not bad!

Did not have one unhappy person today, it was fantastic. Oh and even got a little strip show by a very over eager well built (I might add) guy. It's funny how some people hear rip off your clothes when you actually say, pull up your sleeve -- go figure.

hahaha - oh AT - now I forgot what I was going to say, and I'm just wondering if there was any barking and knee clentching going on! . . .
But that's a different story.

Good job with the shots. I'm not worried about giving IM shots, but I am a little nervous about the first several IVs I will insert!

LMAO...That is a classic, I though you were going to tell her that you had not even given her the needle !!!

You gave 100 flu shots and it was "so much fun"?! Clearly you have chosen the right profession! ;)
