Mary's Desk, January 27, 2010

Dr. Grumpy: "Have you sent those reports over to Dr. Freek yet?"

Mary: "I've been trying, but they're not going through. And it's been busy today."

Dr. Grumpy: "A lot of calls?"

Mary: "Yeah, but most are hang-ups or a fax or something."

Dr. Grumpy: "Why aren't the reports going through to Dr. Freek?"

Mary: "I have no idea. They just aren't. Are you sure about the fax number you gave me?"

Dr. Grumpy: "I think so, let me see it... Yeah, that looks familiar, I think it's his number."

Mary: "Okay, I'll keep trying... HEY!"

Dr. Grumpy: "What?"

Mary: "You dipshit! That's OUR phone number you told me to fax it to."


(long pause)


Dr. Grumpy: "Well, you didn't catch it either."

Mary: "You wrote it down! Not me!"


(another pause)


Dr. Grumpy: "Well, at least now we know why you're getting so many hang-ups today."

Mary: "Go back to your office! I'll tell you when you're allowed to come back out!"

Clearly, the lack of diet coke is getting to you. :O

TexasHeather said...

Admit it, Dr. Grumpy -- you did this, on purpose, because of that "help me out" post a while ago.....didn't you???

Not enough blog fodder, so you've stooped to creating your own. How pathetic.

(pause)

No, seriously -- I love it. I hope Mary doesn't stay mad for long.

ha! I've called my own work number before...and the person next to me at the nurses' station answered it...must be a caffeine deficit.

Amanda said...

You both need the day off!

Marco said...

Talking to yourself is OK. It's when you start losing arguments with yourself that you have to worry...

RxKerBer said...

I cannot tell you how many times I've dialed another pharmacy for a transfer wondering why the phone won't connect - it helps if I dial the PHONE number not the pRESCRIPTION number (most of the time a 6-digit number)

Hang in there Mary and Dr G

Anonymous said...

so, you tried to fax your own notes to yourself.

you're not really losing it until you receive the note, read it, and decide that the person who wrote it must have been an idiot.

Kim said...

Ok....I seriously just laughed out loud.

Lynn said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! That sounds like something one of our Internests would do. To funny.

Helen said...

You provided your own stupid thing to write about!

student dr. blaze said...

i can't stop laughing. that's hilarious!!

it's time to raid the caffeine stash, stat. :-D

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yeah, I'm chugging a Vault Zero now.

The Mother said...

In light of your earlier request for someone to do something stupid, your senior moment sounds suspicious.

xtine said...

I love Mary.
--
why do so many verification words sound like potential drug names? (this time, stecto)

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Believe me, it wasn't intentional.

ER's Mom said...

My home and office number differ by only the last 3 digits...I get confused easily.

;)

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yeah, I think she'll be with me forever because no other boss will let her call them a dipshit.

stewbert said...

*snort* I love that she called you a dipshit and sent you to your office. hahaha

Miss Kismet said...

LOL...classic, Dr. G! You need a stash of Diet Coke somewhere for days like this. Might I suggest Diet Coke Plus if you can find it? It's definitely my choice o' caffeinated savior!

Word verification - RUTCHUTS. Laughed myself silly :)

terri c said...

You think maybe Rikki is a little contagious? Maybe you should gown, glove and mask the next time you talk to her.

Maha said...

And another drink was snorted out all over the screen reading your post! Good job guys! Dr. Grumpy - sounds like you better listen to Mary and stay put in your office for a while!

salegamine said...

I think you did that on purpose, just to have something to blog about...
:P

I'm jealous of Mary. She gets to call her boss a dipshit and put him in "time-out". She's got the best job in the world.

Mari-Ann said...

I can call my boss a dipshit and put him in a time out but he is not NEARLY as funny as our Dr. G. I do so love Mary...you two deserve each other and I mean that in a good way.

ERP said...

Hmmmm. Could that be "Fax Fail"?
