I’m sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room. Next to me, a woman is helping an elderly patient (presumably her mother) fill out the paper work.
In the couple of minutes I’ve been here, I’ve listened to this (a summary):
Daughter: Primary care physician?
Daughter: (LOUDER) PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN?
Daughter: Last tetanus shot?
Daughter: LAST TETANUS SHOT?
This carried on for several minutes, page by page. Then, I heard, “Is patient hard of hearing?”
That’s when I lost it. I’m not even sorry.
