Attention Dr. Pissy!

Since I was on call this weekend, I appreciate you picking up the next week's soda supply for the office.

However, you have erroneously purchased Local Grocery Generic Brand CAFFEINE FREE Diet Soda.

You are never allowed to do the office shopping again. Ever. And I'm reporting you to your wife.

And if the staff uses up all the Provigil samples this week trying to function, it's your fault.

He's not friendly with Dr. Prik, is he?

Generic Brand CAFFEINE FREE diet soda, this person should be made to take call for the next couple of w/e's.

Has nobody explained the cardinal rule of Diet Coke to him?

I mean, seriously? Diet "Caffeine FREE"?!?!??! Who does that????!!!!

~hl~

Helen said...

Woah. What?

Somebody bought caffiene free tea for our office and I had the same reaction. Who does that?!

student dr. blaze said...

That's just...WRONG. Maybe he's just jealous because you work faster than him *and* have time to blog, so he's trying to slow you down? Hmm...

I wonder if you can add Provigil to the soda so that it's not a total waste? If not, I'd put the stuff he bought in the waiting room for the patients. At least they'll think they're getting bonus stuff. And you and your staff will get the amusement of watching some LOL in NAD try to stuff all the cans in her purse. ;-)

For a sec there I thought this was the same guy whose car you got towed yesterday.....

But no. Caffeine free diet soda is repulsive. Betcha it was on sale though.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

OMDG- No, I share office space with Dr. Pissy.

And you're right on all accounts.

Oh you drink the diet coke for the caffeine? I thought you drank them for the taste.

Street Philosopher said...

This is just...I can't say anything other than: travesty. Absolutely repugnant taste in beverages...only because he got caffeine free, though. There are some store brand lifelines (caffeinated beverages) that are pretty good. Would have been the least he could do...

Barb said...

Maybe you should put his wife in charge. My husband volunteered to be in charge of coffee for the office. So whenever they get low, he asks ME to go to Sam's to buy more. Maybe I should get decaf!

thegooddrlaura said...

That person should be made to drink all that stuff by him/herself. All at once.

Jennifer said...

Advantage of being ADD...caffeine is not necessary for survival :-P It either does nothing or makes me sleepy. One of my bosses (a pharmacist) is amazed when I down a 32 oz Dr Pepper with 20mg of adderall and start yawning. I love my Dr Pepper but at least I'm not screwed if all we have is the icky caffeine free stuff my mom drinks!

Albinoblackbear said...

My dad used to call decaf "why bother?"

Lilorfnannie said...

I used to do something to my ex-H- I would be going out to Starbucks and he would want a Venti Mocha. I thought all that caffeine made him nasty to be around, and I didn't want to put up with it. So I would order his usual except Decaf, and tell the barista NOT to write "decaf" on the cup!! For real!! He never found out, that I know of!!

So maybe Dr. Pissy is trying to send you a message. Maybe he thinks you're too "grumpy" on too much caffeine! (And spending too much money on brand-name soda!!) LOL-

Sacrilege.

that's all I have to say about that....

Nancy said...

Two words:

Strategic Incompetence

terri c said...

Oh, I love Nancy's response! But seriously, diet caffeine-free cola is a waste of cans IMHO.

Dymphna said...

I've always equated caffeine free diet soda with nasty tasting water.

Marco said...

At least he wasn't totally passive-aggressive by getting caffeine-free diet PEPSI or something...

ouzelum bird said...

Ewww. The uselessness of caffeine-free diet soda reminds me of this old-timey Peanuts comic:

Linus: How do you like the chocolate I made for you?
Lucy: It's terrible! It's too weak! It tastes like some warm water that has had a brown crayon dipped in it!
Linus: (tastes it.) You're right. I'll go put in another crayon.

John Woolman said...

Drinking caffeine free cola is like making love using a punctured condom.

There's all the risk of the real thing and a lot less of the pleasure.

(And if you don't believe there is no risk in diet coke ask your dentist)!

And another thing, the only thing worse than some hospital apparatchik replacing the Coke machine with a Pepsi machine is when all that is left in the flaming thing is caffeine-free muck....

Hey, in this era of cutbacks, maybe she thought she was doing you a favour!

I am vehemently opposed to capital punishment but I think we should make an exception in the case of Dr Pissy!!

Ladyk73 said...

I forgot...what does Dr. Pissy do? He is NOT a urologist, right? lol

Grumpy, M.D. said...

LadyK73- He and I are not in the same specialty. He's not a usrologist, either.

He's a good guy. I named him that because Grumpy and Pissy sounds like such a good combo.

uh....isn't Provigil a controlled substance?...samples?...wtf

remclave said...

(LOL!......NOT!)
Isn't it possible that he did this on purpose just so he could be removed from the onerous duty of taking his turn to do the office shopping?
