How Did That Get There?

Why do people come into the pharmacy for a flu shot and wear long sleeve shirts? I was giving a flu shot today and holding the man’s sleeve up, while sterilizing the area, I’m really struggling with his sleeve, I remove the syringe cap and give the injection. I dispose of the syringe and while I reach for the bandaid I drop the cap behind the man’s back. I apply the bandaid and try to retrieve the cap… it is sticking in his butt crack!! I wait a split second and as I reach for the cap he stands up. I was too embarrassed to tell him so I let him go. I can imagine when he finds it he is going to say, How the hell did that get there? -pharmhand
