Bedside manner with Dr. Grumpy

Mr. Aspirin: "Doc, I've had 2 strokes. The first was in 2007, when I was visiting friends in Canada, and the 2nd happened last month while I was at a Bible class. Does that mean anything?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Yes. You should avoid Canadian Bible classes."

Fortunately, he had a sense of humor.

But then won't he risk going to H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks?

There's a joke in there about God striking you down while you're studying the Bible.

You had me laughing my ass off. Thanks.

Bless my family doc's heart. I went to him with an elbow injury last year, and while rotating my forearm said to him, "It hurts when I do this". He replied with a little smile, "Don't do that".

My best friend does geriatrics and the daughter of one of her dementia patients asked for an easy way to cope on her mother's more difficult days. Without thinking my friend said, "Vodka." Luckily the lady laughed. Humor is important, lol.

The Mother said...

I would agree. But I'd say all bible classes. It can't be good for your brain to put it through such machinations.

I agree with the Mother. Avoid them all - unless they turn out to be key parties incognito.

I worked with a pharmacist a few years ago that could get away with saying things that no one else would get away with. A young lady was asking him for Plan B. We happened to be out of stock at the time. She asked, "So what am I supposed to do now?" Without missing a beat his response was, "I guess you'll have to move on to Plan C." He got the deer-in-the-headlights look while the rest of us tried desparately not to laugh. (yes, he did direct her to another pharmacy)
