Dénouement

Aw, gee, they're towing Dr. Prik's car away.

What kind of asshole would have called security to report the expired placard?

That's a shame.

You, sir, are my hero.

I decided not to comment, but your word verification is "flonaes."

I am hoping that the placard had a clearly visible expiration date on it (although if it did, it had been ignored for a long time) and that Dr. Prik doesn't remember conversations.

Although that is sweet.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I think the last conversation I had with Dr. Prik is that he was telling me how he broke the coffee machine last night.

BRAVO!!! You made my day.

You not only enjoyed a private grin, but also did society a favor.

hahahahahahahahaha
You just made this PAINFUL Sunday much, much better. Nice work! :D

That's awesome. You win one internet cookie.

Haha, what goes around comes around....if he just had fixed the coffee machine...

God, I love happy endings.

You rock, Dr. Grumpy!

Ooohhh-lazy and he was the one that broke the coffee maker?! Definitely deserves the reality check! Good work.

Sunny said...

Coming out of lurkdom to say YOU ROCK. He should be absolutely ashamed of himself.

lightning said...

He ... broke the coffee machine??

That's a hanging offense right there.

I enjoy readibg your blog! I am not sure if I should laugh or cry with you. You have some "winners" for patients; and some really messed up referring doctors, and PT's. However, maybe if my PT phrased my "goals" such as the one you shared with us some time ago; maybe I wouldn't be in PT anymore. What a way to increase the success rate of your PT clinic.

I just pray that none of my "ologists" have such good stories to tell about me on their blogs. That would be scary. I sure do try and be kind, polite, resonable and very thankful for their time and patience.

In fact, I know their favorite treats and I always come bearing those treats at all my appointments (and often treats for the office staff too).

So, if you were my neurologist, Diet Coke at every visit (and I am seen every 2-3 months to manage my condidtion). LOL! Some call me an butt kisser; I see it as an extra little thank you for putting up with everything they have to when it comes to my care.

Now for the real reason I commented for the first time ever! Way to go, Grumpy. I sure wonder why Dr. Prik hasn't had has car towed before. There is going to be one angry orthopod come Monday morning.

I also have to wonder where Dr. Prik will be sleeping tonight? Something tells me the Mrs. won't be to proud of her husband.

Your dedication is inspiring! Your patients are lucky to have you on their side. In the area I live there are very few neurologists and of those neurologists there are even less good ones; making it hard to find a neuro that meets my needs! Is that the case elsewhere? Anyone?

After 15 years I have HIT THE NEUROLOGY JACKPOT!

Sending "good vibes" your way, for a migraine free week full of your favorite patients and an endless supply of DIET COKE to get you through the rough appointments.

Hats off to you sir, well done.

Grumpy, you da man!

We have more than a few folks at the Hotel Rehab who salute you...especially when they can't get in their vehicles since no spaces are left or they're blocked from getting in their vans due to idiots parking in striped areas.

Sounds like karma had his way with the SOB. Especially after breaking the coffee machine as well.

Jules Someone said...

That is excellent.

I... I think I love you, Dr Grumpy. Marry me and bear our children.

(Ok, then. Children our Bears?)

(I also shoulda said: No offense meant to Mrs. Grumpy or any of the Grumpy family. I'm just a bad, bad Moose.)

Somehow I almost picture you saying "Excellent" in the manner of Mr. Burns as you watch the tow truck picking up Dr. Prik,s car

good work! lets hope he has amnesia so he can't recall who he told that excuse to....

pharmacychick said...

good.for.you!

Gen said...

I'm surprised it was towed. Don't they usually just give you a ticket? Though, I suppose any car illegally parked can be towed. I bet with the ticket and towing, he's looking at $200-$300. Chump change for him, I suppose. At least he has to haul his keaster downtown to get his car.

Morris said...

You're a bad boy, Dr G, but I happily admit I would have/have done the same...

Julie said...

** high 5 ** love your work!

Well, wish him luck when he has to appear to claim his car back.

I guess you could tell him to break a leg. Then run off stifling a giggle.

tra-la-LA!

A well-deserved standing ovation to you, good sir. Well-deserved, indeed.

What kind of car did he have towed away?

He-he-he... YAY for you!!!

RxKerBer said...

This made me smile soooo big. THank you, thank you, thank you. Just what I needed after crappy day 1,043,355 at corpro pharmacy. Plus the comment about Mr Burns was priceless.

The Melancholy Mommy said...

You make me smile. You rock, Dr. G!

terri c said...

U R my hero. Parking in handicap space plus breaking coffee machine certainly deserves the punishment. Is he really an orthopod? Three strikes, he's out!

Verification word is "manity." Is this a vain attitude on the part of a man?

Woo-hoo! I wish I could have seen his face! Keep up the good work, Grumpy!

You, sir, are awesome. I just wanted to make sure you were aware.

lattermild said...

Dr. Grumpy FTW

Marco said...

This is where his arrogance caught up with him - for someone who would so blatantly abuse the parking laws like that, it is consistent behavior that he thought the tag expiration deadline didn't apply to 'big,important' people like him...

So, BwaHaHaHaHaHa !

Jennifer said...

Major props to you, good sir. My moms fiancé has CP so we use his placard when he's with us (we call it hax parking). It's amazing to me how many jerks take advantage of things like that. Honestly I'd rather walk further than have to take apart his chair..load it..put it back together etc etc. I'm sure he'd rather walk too! Then you have jerks like dr. Prik taking up spots...argh!

Anonymous said...

what kind of car does he own?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I never said he was an orthopedist. Soemeone who commented did. I am not saying his specialty.

You sir, do rock indeed.

1 cosmic attaboy, Dr. G.
I'll bet Dr Prik drives a BMW.


wv word: coran, is Dr. P ...?

Old MD Girl said...

Naughty Dr. G!

Haha. What goes around comes around.

HEY, AXL (6:53) -- I drive a BMW, and I'm not like that! We've all seen ALL kinds of cars inappropriately parked. Watch the generalizations, eh?

the Muse, RN said...

Thanks for sharing your completely un-involved siting with us!!

...Wish I could have been near when Dr Prik came out to leave. Didn't happen to observe that, too, Dr G?

Cynical Pharmacist said...

Can you get Dr. Radar to get a MRI of Dr. Prik's head?

Just wondering what it would show..
