My Doctor Said What? by Maggie Millus




I just got back from a visit to my doctor.  All went well. We even managed to say the right things to each other.


Now I’m very wary of doctors, and I wonder…what if my doctor or surgeon had said the wrong things? So I’ve compiled a short list  (I like my lists to be short) of things nobody wants to hear their doctor or surgeon say.  And here they are:


  • Oops!


  •  Whoaaa!  Would you look at the size of that!


  • That thing’s big enough to eat Detroit!


  • Damn thing keeps wiggling…


  • Did I do that?



  • I’ve never seen one like that before…


  • She’ll never know the difference…


  • Check her id bracelet?  What for?


  • Let’s see…was it on the right or the left side?


  • The robot malfunctioned…



  • You don’t have one of those anymore


  • You’re gonna need a lot more work…


  • Well, at least you’re alive…


  • You’ve lived long enough…doesn’t matter anymore


  • You’re 42 years old now.  Your life is over. (Honest, I did have a doctor say that to me.  He’s been dead for a few years now….)



Now I know doctors are only human, but for the life of me, I wish they would watch what they say.
