Even When Disoriented...

An amusing anecdote from someone who had a trip to the ER and related the story to Blog For America:
Best of all, was the registered nurse who took care of me. She told me that they have all kinds of disoriented people come into the ER. The nurses ask them a series of questions to see how out of it they are: "Do you know where you are? How old are you? Who's the president of the United States?" When they get to the last question, 9 times out of 10, the patient says, "That @$$hole!" She said, "Even if these people are drunk out of their minds, they say, 'That @$$hole!'" I gave the R.N. one of my Dean buttons, and she promised to check him out on the net.
Now granted, it was a San Francisco hospital, but it still cracked me up.
