Today's Winner!

Last patient of the day, and the week for that matter. 51 year old lady.

Dr. Grumpy: "Any changes in your medications since your last visit?"

Mrs. Friday: "Yes, I'm not taking birth control pills any more."

Dr. Grumpy: "Oh, are you menopausal?"

Mrs. Friday (puzzled look): "No, Doctor, I'm Hispanic."

Haha. Like a scene in "Bend it Like Beckham" where the grandmother says "shes not Lebanese, she is Punjabi" after someone hurls a homophobic slur at her granddaughter.

Choreboy and I just sat here staring at each other after I read this post to him, then we blinked and got some coffee.

Some things you can't even find the words to describe (especially when it's oh-dark-hundred)

I used the same answer when someone asked if I was a notary.

after a patient was asked her birthday the other day, a nurse in my department replied...oh, so you're a virgo? The 80 year old patient looked at her and laughed, "oh no honey, I haven't been that for a very long time"

I wonder what she thinks menopausal means?

What was your response? "Oh, but of course!"
