Are you having a bad day at work? Thanks to an old email I have just the thing to change that lemon into lemonade...On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section. Purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson and Johnson. Be very sure you get this brand.
When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed.
Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair.
Open the package and remove the thermometer.
Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.
Now the fun part begins. Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully. You will notice that in small print there is a statement:
'Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized'.
Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times:
'I am so glad I do not work in thermometer quality control at Johnson & Johnson.'
Just remember: there is always someone else with a job that is more of a pain in the butt that yours!
