Yesterday I had a minor rant about patient who annoy me. I had a few more today but I also had some great laughs. Remember that post about the double entendres I overhear all the time? Well, today gave me (or my inner 12 year old boy, Jeff, depending upon how you render it) a few guffaws.
First, a patient came in asking if I was ready for the massive coronal ejection heading our way. Seriously? You're going to hand ME a line like that and expect me to play it straight.? I think my head would explode from the pressure of the attempt. However, I couldn't be completely inappropriate so I just arched a single eyebrow and feigned disgust before asking if he spoke to his mother with that mouth. It was the retort least likely to get me fired but I wanted to be soooooo much bawdier.
At the close of day it was my turn for housekeeping duties. This involves collecting all the garbage and vacuuming the carpet. Last week I was told to skip the vacuuming as the bag was full and the vacuum was worthless until we got more bags. This week I was informed we had new bags. I installed one and fired up the Hoover. A marked improvement in performance was noted and I exclaimed, "Now I'm sucking with POWER!"
What? I had a lot of pent up frustration to release!
In other news, after all this temptation both to read idiots the riot act like yesterday and then be totally outrageous today I need to get away and blow off some steam. I'm Boston bound to unwind and have a ball with my cousin for a few days and perhaps cause some general public mayhem with another blogger and lovely wife. There may or may not be any posting before next Tuesday. It depends on how much trouble I get into.
