Waiting at the Doctor’s Office

Waiting at the Doctor's Office

Don’t you just hate waiting at the doctor’s office to see the physician? Or, what about when you’re called in and you find yourself sitting on the bench in a robe for 20 minutes or more?

Well, that happened to me the other day. I was sitting in one of the offices, waiting to see the doctor, when I started to hear a conversation between the doctor and another patient. I stopped and listened…

“And this hurts me and that hurts me and I don’t know what I’m going to do about that… ” the patient said. She went on and on and on about all of her ailments.

Ha… I was planning on doing the same thing but after listening to this woman, I knew just then, that there was a reason why I wasn’t a doctor! She didn’t stop complaining. I wondered if the doctor actually heard her or tuned her out.

When he finally came into the office where I was situated, I said, “that’s why I decided not to be a doctor.” He didn’t say anything.

What he did say was, “and what brings you here?”
