Tuesday Morning

Dr. Grumpy: "So, I'm going to get these tests, and then we'll meet back here to discuss them. Any questions?"

Mr. Isoptera: "Yeah, do you like being a neurologist?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Yes. I mean, no job is perfect, but I like what I do."

Mr. Isoptera: "Well, I'm selling franchises of my exterminator business, Termite Begone, and... Here, let me give you a pamphlet and my card..."

As a neurologist you'll have an easy transition to exterminator.

It's just a matter of time before chocolate covered ants, bees and crickets come back into vogue. Artisanally speaking, of course. You might be passing the opportunity of a lifetime!

Assessment wise, your patient exhibits a high degreee of flexibility in manipulating thoughts. And chutzpah.

If the salary was in the 6 figure range it might worth it with the looming Medicare cuts.

1) Termite terminator....hmmm, could be worse...fart odor classifier?
2) Could try telling patients they have "termites on the brain", and that they need exterminating. Then decide which to *terminate*, depending on how well the patients fit the *usual criteria*, as discussed exhaustively on this blog!

Don't you just hate it when your patients bug you about stuff?
