She looked me up and down disapprovingly. “Doc, that scarf. You need more color. Too much black and brown today.”
Several hours later, a different patient… Same scarf. “Doc, you look so gorgeous! I adore that scarf!!!”
“Doc, we love your butt! We could just eat that butt up!” From two grown women in with their elderly mother.
“Oh, Doc, I know it’s a benign skin lesion. I’ve got another one over here. I just wanted you to hold my leg like that. Made my day. My year! I might be old, but I’m not dead…”
“Doc, I am glad to see you don’t drive a sissy sports car!” Yelled across the parking lot by a patient as I was getting out of my big black pick-up truck.
“The only good thing about coming to the doctor is that I get to see you!”
Pan, at On The Road Cooking, asked about best patient one-liners. These are a few. I’ve done a bunch of other posts over the years with funny things patients say. While some of the things may seem shocking to you, I am used to it. Provided they are not being ugly, I just let it go.
Fiction Friday will start next week!
