you first

I’m a physician assistant in dermatology.  One day I walked into an exam room to see a patient who was there for an upper body exam.  After introducing myself, I walked to the computer to look at his chart and I stated, “Go ahead and remove your shirt.”  To which he replied, “You first.”  I looked at him for a while since it didn’t register to me what he was saying.  He then repeated the statement as it clicked in my brain what he was talking about.  It must’ve been the confused/disgusted look on my face that made him state, “Sorry, bad joke.”
