Any questions?

Nice fuzzy seat covers

Rick said...

Is that the green tea-soda stuff? Yuck.

This could be an advertisement for diet coke though..."9 out of 10 grumpy neurologists agree.."

Grumpy, M.D. said...

It's not soda. Just bottled green tea from Costco.

Jess said...

All that caffeine and I'm betting it wasn't enough.

Anonymous said...

Looks like plenty of vitamin C - Coke, Coffee, and Candy

Gee, I admire your bladder capacity!

My son is trying to save up enough money to buy the Lego Death Star. If you would like to drive your car here and pay my son $5.00 to clean that for you, he'd be more than willing. ;)

ER's Mom said...

No, Grumpy, that's MY car! ;) DH is always after me for using my car as a moving garbage can.

Shrtstormtrooper said...

My question is only this: Where did you ever find those snazzy seat covers?!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I got them at a charity store 8 years ago. It keeps the kids from writing on the seats.

Jon said...

Very artisanal...

Magdalene said...

You need more chocolate and maybe some chips too to balance out the sugar.

Empty rubbish bag put in first ?

Packer said...

At 5 cents deposit, you have a tank of gas there.

Thatgirl said...

My first thought was: Mmmmmm, diet coke.

Christina said...

You really need a cloth bag to hang on the passenger seat to corral your trash and returnables. I'd make you one, but I might label it "artisanal" just to mess with you. 8D

CrownedwithVictory said...

What I love is how your children are way older than the carseat age and I see a carseat-strap-securing-thingy down there. (like my technical lingo?)

Anonymous said...

I'm on call 16 days a month. My car garbage is proportional.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Crowned with Victory: Thank you. I actually had no idea what that is.

It's been there for about 5 years. Since it looked somewhat important I've just left it there.

Anonymous said...

you are throwing away the blue travel mug too?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

No, it and the silver one are in the dishwasher now.

AlexDreamz said...

Actually, I'm highly impressed with your tidy nature since I'm willing to bet your "before" pic was actually taken "after". Considering it takes me 30-45 minutes just to decontaminate my husband's car when I want to borrow it (he can obtain your "after" photo in about 10 minutes!), I'm wondering... do you teach a class in that? ;)

Entrak said...

A little tip from one who lives on the road, so to speak..

Get yourself a plastic bin to toss all the bottles in. Will cost you maybe 5$ at walmart.
Saves you having to get a bag or carry them like a dofus to the recycling stations and instead just lift it out like a boss.

And you'll avoid any leftover spilling your interior as a bonus.

pharmacy chick said...

ya got any Reeses left? thats my favorite!

I'd say you've got the basic food groups covered there.

At least you can find your car seat seat-belt clip...

Liz said...

but what do you eat, doc? i see the drinks, but i'm shocked at your oversight... where are the mcd's and bk bags?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I eat caffeine.

That and the cookies I grab in the doctor's lounge don't have wrappers.

ERP said...

I assumed you cleaned up the crack pipe before you took the pic?

Anonymous said...

Do you round from inside the car? I'm looking for a sleeping bag and toothbrush. It looks like a bunch of boy scouts lived in there for the weekend.

Where are the empty Jack bottles?

medrecgal said...

A man after my own heart...I love anything with peanut butter in it, pretty much, especially if it also has chocolate! (But I have to drink my Diet Coke w/o the caffeine jolt.)

Reds Kevin said...

How do you get rid of the ants afterwards so that Craig, Frank & Marie don't get bitten by ant bites in the car?

a.generic doc said...

The passenger side of your car looks like the floor of the back seat in my car.

The back seat holds more... and I don't have to clean it out if I'm driving with just my wife in the car.

landlockedtxn said...

glad to know our car is not the only one that looks like this after a busy weekend.

I used to have an addiction to Diet Mountain Dew. Take it from me...switched to Monster energy drinks...more caffine per unit volume...and hence less time spent in the potty!

SuFu PhD said...

looks like the trash can in my study area. i have the floor essentially coated with 24 oz diet dew bottles and atleast a dozen coffee cups because I forget to bring it upstairs to get more. 7 days and 5 exams of hell week left.

I'm a professional musician, and when I'm in rehearsals day and night right before an opera opens, my passenger seat is covered in deli paper from sub shops.

rapnzl rn said...

Weekends on-call deserve chocolate-covered espresso beans. Period.

Debbie said...

Yep. That's about right for a weekend on call. You should see my floor....Every other week or so I drive 3-4 hours to rural/frontier western Kansas to do ER/clinic locums for 5-7 days. You can imagine.

Kim said...

Btw, I have been looking for blue books ever since I noticed the title of this post...compare and contrast. Do they still use blue books in colleges?

Talking Scientist said...

so...can I use this as a source to tell people "No aspartame doesn't cause Alzheimer's"?

gloria p said...

Is there a Twelve Step Program for soda drinking? If so, it needs you.

Forget the "artininal" cloth bags and the oh-so macho bins. And forget recycling altogether. With all the plastic used IN the hospital (not in the Yak herder's car) it is obvious the medical community is not into saving the planet. (the people, not the planet ...)
Simply get a plastic bag from the kosher (or not kosher) grocery store, place one handle around the grearshift (hmmmm ... does the Grumpymobile have a gear shift? Most garbage trucks do ...) or the parking brake (most go WHAAAAAA THAAAA???) handle and toss away. Remove and repeat as needed.
Cheap and one more use for the Grumpy plastic trash bags. And even if Mrs. Grumpy, smart woman she is carries home her groceries in a reusuable bag, Our Favorite Yak Herder can get one when he stops at the store for Reeses.

I like the seat cover too...
