My favorite joke of all time

No, it's not PC. Deal.
**************

A woman walks into the downtown welfare office, trailed by 15 kids.

"Wow," the social worker exclaims, "are they all yours???"

"Yep, they’re all mine," the flustered momma sighs, having heard that question a thousand times before.

She says, "Sit down, Leroy." All the children rush to find seats.

"Well," says the social worker, "then you must be here to sign up. I'll need all of your children's names."

"This ’un’s my oldest – he’s Leroy."
"OK, and who's next?"
"Well, this ‘un, he’s Leroy, too."

The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the oldest four, all boys, all named Leroy. Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, named Leighroy!

"All right," says the caseworker. "I'm seeing a pattern here. Are they all named Leroy?"

Their Momma replied, "Well, yeah; it makes it easier. When it’s time to git ‘em out of bed and ready for school, I yell, 'Leroy! Time to git up!' An’ when it's time for dinner, I jus’ yell 'Leroy! Time for dinner!' an' they all comes a-runnin.' An' if I need to stop the kid who's runnin’ into the street, I jus’ yell 'Leroy! Stop!' and all of them stop. It's the smartest idea I ever had, namin’ ‘em all Leroy."

The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively, "But what if you just want one kid to come, and not the whole bunch?"

"Oh, that's easy. I call ‘em by their last name."

My favorite joke of all time just came in the form of an email from the nurse manager/my boss:

In an effort to improve the experience of patients who are waiting in the waiting area to come back to a treatment room, I would like to implement the following changes effective immediately:

1. The greeter needs to do a 'walk through' of the waiting room every 30 minutes (on the hour and half hours).

2. The greeter should make eye contact with each person in the waiting area and say the following:

"Sorry that you are still waiting. Is there anything I can do to make you more comfortable while you wait?"

3. The greeter should supply patients with pillows, blankets, or emesis basins if requested.

4. If the patient complains that they are getting worse, or have had a change in their medical complaint, the greeter will notify the triage nurse immediately who will come and see the patient quickly.

5. Any requests for food, drink, or anything medical must be approved by the triage nurse first.

Hopefully this will make the experience of our waiting patients better and will enhance their overall ED experience.

Thanks

Mine all have the same last name, but damned if I haven't threatened to change all their names to Mary. (I call them by the wrong name constantly. Thank God I have only girls.)

hannah,
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE tell me you are making this up to be funny!

MG,
I think this is the post that is getting you in trouble with "you know who"--not the meth/sudafed/law thing. I'm sure of it!
