When a patient says “I have a tight ass” during the digital rectal exam

It took everything I had to fight back laughing while I was still in the room:

Trying not to laugh

Even now, I’m still cracking up from the fact someone actually said that while a clinician’s finger was still examining the patient’s bumhole. The patient was serious about the comment, but definitely meant it for some humor too.  I’m telling you folks, this stuff is too good to make up!

It’s moments like these where being in clinic and working with patients reminds me why I love my job!
