Whatever

Mrs. Sad: "Some days I feel like I have no one to talk to."

Dr. Grumpy: "What do you do when that happens?"

Mrs. Sad: "You mean when I have no one to talk to?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Yes"

Mrs. Sad: "I talk to someone about it."

Perhaps you could prescribe her a course in basic logic?

Miss Kismet said...

If by talking to "someone" about it she means her 12 cats, then it probably makes more sense :)

You totally could have been a shrink.

I was thinking that she talks to a professional, which is helpful, but it isn't really anybody. They are paid to listen to you.

Maybe that was her issue?

wtf?!

yeah, that reprieve you got from stupidity yesterday? it's clearly over.

Beloved Parrot said...

Well . . . yeah.

Sounds like variation on a common theme in your practice. Wait, make that 2 themes: 1)contradiction; and 2) the obvious.

1)When I have no-one talk to, I talk to someone.

2)When I take a pain-reliever, I have less pain.

By the way, did Mary REALLY call you a "dipshit" after she discovered you asked her to fax your records to your own number?

when I have no-one to talk to, I'm usually quite happy about it, because I love to be alone. But if I'm feeling lonely, I open up the internet connection.

Hmmm. To her invisible friend?

...usually, the hospital switchboard at 3AM, till they figure out that I have no real reason for calling and put the phone down so I can ramble till my heart's content.

DOH! >.<

Poor Mrs. Sad. God bless you, Dr. Grumpy. I have a feeling you are a lifeline to her and many others.
You sound like a doctor who cares.

Now, Mr. Pancake, on the other hand . . .

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Obviously contradicted- yes, she did. We've called each other far worse.

After all these years we've reached a level where we can say anything to each other, and no offense is taken.

Some days the only thing that keeps me awake is trying to think of a better insult to send her, in response to the one she just sent me.

Hey, did this patient have a dog in her purse?
