He needed a pristine sample of urine that I happily provided, several times in fact, until his place in the team was secured. Twenty years later the tables were turned on me when purchasing a life insurance policy. The ‘doctor’ evaluating me accompanied me to the lavatory door, and although he didn't enter, he checked the temperature of the resulting sample!
