So whenever he's in I drop by to make things aren't getting out of hand.
Last night, while out trick-or-treating, I got called from ER. He was coming in for breathing problems, and they wanted me to do my usual visit in case he flakes out.
So on my way into the office this morning I swung by the hospital.
Dr. Grumpy: "Hi, Phil. How ya doin'?"
Phil: "Dr. Grumpy! Thank God you're here!"
Dr. Grumpy: "What's up?"
Phil: "I've been having TERRIBLE problems with your staff."
Dr. Grumpy: "Really? What happened?"
Phil: "Mary and Annie came to visit me last night!"
Dr. Grumpy: "Uh-huh..." (this is already a bad sign. Neither of them lives anywhere near the hospital).
Phil: "Mary held me down! And then Annie beat me up! And then they poisoned my coffee! You need to do something about this!"
I can't wait till Mary and Annie come in today and I can ask what they did for Halloween. I'd naively assumed they were out with their kids, too.
