There’s nothing worse than a Doctor’s Receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you, in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it. A 75-year-old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk. The Receptionist said, ‘Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?’ ‘There’s something wrong with my dick’, he replied. The receptionist became irritated and said, ‘You shouldn’t come into a crowded waiting room and say things like that.’ ‘Why not, you asked me what was wrong and I told you,’ he said. The Receptionist replied; ‘Now you have caused some needless embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and discussed the problem further with the Doctor in private.’ The man replied, ‘You should not ask people questions in a roomful of strangers if the answer could embarrass anyone.’ The man then decided to walk out, waited several minutes and then re-entered. The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, ‘Yes??’ ‘There’s something wrong with my ear,’ he stated loudly. The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. ‘What is wrong with your ear, Sir?’ ‘I can’t piss out of it,’ he replied. The waiting room erupted in laughter.
Marvellous…How true is this?..Very
I like it
The other question that always gets me is: “Is it urgent/serious?”
“I don’t know! That is why I’d like to see a doctor!”
That is great needed a lunchtime giggle
Ha ha ha, I have got to come up with something similar for the superior minded receptionists at my surgery.
One of them told a friend of mine over the phone quite loudly “Yes, Mrs X, the test result is back and you are pregnant” to which she replied “You’d better hope I’m keeping it since you’ve just announced that loudly enough for the whole waiting room to hear!”
