Does That Hurt?

HumorWe live in a small town where we have a volunteer Ambulance Company. We are blessed with many dedicated and fully qualified attendants who staff our ambulances and give freely of themselves. I was chatting with one of the EMS responders one day and she could hardly stifle a chuckle, so I asked her what was so funny and she told me this story.

It seems that she had gone to an automobile accident and was checking a patient who was lying on the road for injuries. As she knelt beside him and probed him, she asked, “Does this hurt or does that hurt”?

After each probe, he replied, “No.”

When she had nearly completed her examination, she shifted to a better spot from which to finish the examination when after one of her probing questions, he exclaimed very loudly, “That hurts!”

When she asked where, he looked up at her with a look of real pain on his face and said, “You’re kneeling on my fingers!”
