Okay, You Can

Dr. Grumpy: "After you hit your head, how long were you unconscious?"

Mr. Dingdong: "1 minute and 14.37 seconds."

Dr. Grumpy "That's pretty precise."

Mr. Dingdong: "I used a stopwatch".

why did he time it?

^^ I think the better question is, why did he know he was going to hit his head and be knocked unconscious and how did he push the button if he was unconscious?!? People are SO BIZARRE!

Did you sigh loudly at this point?

I did, reading it. So much stupid.

Let me guess--an engineer?

Nurse K said...

I'm calling bullshit on this one!

Rachael said...

I can just see it, holding the stopwatch, "ok, and faint NOW!"

Mr. Knucklehead said...

What, he's trying to achieve his personal best?

BAHAHA! I had a guy tell me he was hit by a truck and had been in a coma earlier that same day, then he decided he probably was still in said coma. Complete with a hillbilly accent (and I'm in California).

Word verification: Bangest. LOL.

He gets a warning aura, has tonic seizures, and uses a stopwatch with a deadman switch.

Duh.

my word is "verments." I think it means worm poop. Or breath fresheners.

It has to have been an engineer turned med student. In fact, I probably dated him. Dingdong doesn't even begin to describe the extent of it....

I'm wondering why the question is asked? Don't most people who are unconscious think it was only for a split second (of course unless it was witnessed and bystanders tell them how long they were out for)??? Not trying to second guess the Mongolian Yak herder, just perplexed.... :)

Dear Mommy-medic,

The correct answer to the question is "I'm not sure" or "whoever witnessed it told me x amount of time." It's really a screening question to weed out fakeurs. Shh. don't tell.
