Bubba had  shingles.   Those of us who  spend much time in a doctor's office should appreciate  this! Doesn't it seem more and more that physicians  are running their practices like an assembly line? 
Here's what happened to  Bubba:

  Bubba walked  into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him  what he had. Bubba said: 'Shingles.' So she wrote down  his name, address, medical insurance number 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, weight, a complete medical history and told  Bubba to wait in the examining  room..

  A half hour  later a nurse came in and asked Bubba what he had.  Bubba said, 'Shingles..' So the nurse gave Bubba a  blood test, a blood pressure test, an  electrocardiogram, and told Bubba to take off all his  clothes and wait for the  doctor.

  An hour later  the doctor came in and found Bubba sitting patiently  in the nude and asked Bubba what he  had.

  Bubba said,  'Shingles.' The doctor asked, 'Where?'
Bubba said,  'Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload  'em??'
