The Doctors Receptionist

This was received today. I guess my friend thought I needed a lighter moment being Thursday and all. Yeah, some situations in life warrant something akin to the story here. Please do excuse the language though.
This may actually be a fictitious STORY but I did come across similar situations where the receptionist indeed asks stupid questions to which she has no answers in the first place. Others tell you straight away that you need this or that test/treatment before the doctor even had a chance to speak to you.

There's nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, which is why I love the way this old guy handled it. 
An 86-year-old man walked into a crowded Doctor's Waiting Room. As he approached the desk, the Receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?" 
"There's something wrong with my dick," he replied. The Receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded Doctor's Room and say things like that."  
"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said. 
The Receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and then discuss the problem further with the Doctor in private."  
The man replied, "You shouldn't ask people things in a room full of others, if the answer could embarrass anyone." The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered. 
The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?"  
"There's something wrong with my ear," he stated. 
The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. "And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?" 
"I can't piss out of it," the man replied.  
The Waiting Room erupted in laughter.
