Timing is everything

Dr. Grumpy: "What brings you in to see me today?"

Mr. Chronos: "Well, I had this really bad back pain going into my right leg after moving some furniture, and it lasted about a day, then got better."

Dr. Grumpy: "When was this?"

Mr. Chronos: "Last spring, maybe around March."

Dr. Grumpy: "So, wait... You had back pain for one day 9 months ago? And you're coming to see me now?"

Mr. Chronos: "I didn't want to forget about it."

I think I know this guy's wife. And brother. And niece. And uncle. And third cousin twice removed.

Let me guess. His insurance changes on January 1st, and he wants an MRI.

I can't remember breakfast from Monday and he didn't want to forget about it from 9 months ago ? Hmmm

No wonder why health insurance is so expensive.

I had pain in my back once, six years ago last Tuesday. Shall I make an appointment?
