A relatively new nurse was taking care of a man who had to have an oxygen mask. While she was in his room, he asked her, "Could you please check to see if my testicles are black?"
She thought, "What???" but said, "I'm sure they are fine."
He persisted. "I really need you to check and see if my testicles are black."
She reassured him, "No, that's not what you're in here for. I'm sure they are fine." (Thinking: "I do not want to see this man's testicles.")
Still. "No, really. Could you please check to see if my testicles are black."
"Okay, I can see that this is really important to you." So she pulls back the blanket, lifts the man's gown, and checks.
"Sir, everything looks just fine."
He gives her a scathing look, pulls his oxygen mask off, and says, "Listen very carefully. I said, 'Could you please check to see if my test results are back.'"
