I was the senior night nurse working in a large nursing home.
One night we had a problem with the nurse call system – the ‘cancel’ button had become loose and fallen inside the control panel so we couldn’t cancel an answered buzzer or hear when another one was activated. I rang the contract electrician for advice and after I’d explained the problem, he asked ‘Is there a male member of staff on duty with you?’
I answered that there was but wanted to know why he asked, and at the same time silently wondered what part a penis played in the solution to the problem. His reply? ‘It’s easily repaired but it takes someone who can use a screwdriver to do it’.
