My doctor is taking things a little too seriously

I went to my doctor today and told him I have a sore shoulder. He asked how long I'd had the shoulder. I told him 44 years, give or take. He said it was obviously not a serious problem if I had lived with it for that long.
I had to explain that I had the "sore" shoulder for only a month, but had the shoulder itself since some time before birth. Finally, he understood and called me a "shit disturber". Anyway, the shoulder just has some inflammation. Rest, ice and ibuprophen is all I need.

I think I brought a little levity into my doctor's life because he was more cheerful when he left the room than when he came in.
