The nurse showed up to do my "medical exam" for my life insurance policy renewal, and we sat down at my dining room table. Knowing that I was holding my pee for the urine sample, she promptly handed me a lidless cup with a pour spout on it and sent me off to "fill it to the marked line".
I complied and returned, cup in hand.
She looked up and said, "Just set it right there," indicating that I should set it on a piece of paper she'd laid on my table.
"My family eats there," I said.
"You can put it on the paper," she replied. Apparently, she did so many of these a day, she failed to see the significance.
"My family eats there," I said again.
Finally, she poured it off into two little tubes and capped them tightly.
Thanks for the picture, Zazzle
I'll be too old when this policy ends to do it again, thank goodness.
Note to self: When Hubs renews his policy in a couple years, I think I'll have them avoid sitting at my dining room table.
