My uncle’s doctor’s appointment

When going to the doctor, I always try to get my appointments to be first one in the morning or the last one in the day, believing I probably won't have to wait as long.

Well, a few years ago, I had an uncle who had the last doctor's appointment in the day. The nurse led him into the examining room and he lay down on the table. She checked his blood pressure and pulse. Leaving the room, she said, "The doctor will be in to see you in a few minutes."

Well, he fell asleep waiting for the doctor. They closed up the office and they all went home, forgetting about my uncle. Sometime after dark, the cleaning lady came in to do some cleaning. She opened the door, flipped on the light, and it scared her so bad she screamed out and, of course, woke him up. He replied, "Lady, I'm all right if you are."

The next day they tried to charge him for not keeping his doctor's appointment.
