The Shouting Doctor

Having recently graduated from nursing school, it was Anna’s first day working at a doctor’s private clinic.

Not long into her day, she heard a man yell, “Typhoid!”

A short while later she heard the man shout, “Penicillin!”

Anna asked another nurse who the man was, and the nurse blythely mentioned that he was the clinic’s doctor.

As the day went on she kept hearing the doctor loudly announcing various things like, “Tetanus!”, “Measles!”, “Influenza!”, “Polio!”, “Mumps!”

Finally Anna asked the other nurse, “Why does he keep doing that?”

The other nurse replied, “Oh, he just likes calling the shots around here.”
