Better late then never

Dr. Grumpy: "Mr. Gregorian, it looks like I saw you once,... back in 2003, and started you on daily Aspirin... and then we never heard from you again. So what brings you in today?"

Mr. Gregorian: "Just following up. You told me to come back in 6 years to check in."

Dr. Grumpy: "Um, it looks like I told you to come back in 6 weeks."

Mr. Gregorian: "Whatever. Anyway, I'm here now."

OMG- before I can even comment on this post, I have the box open that I am typing this into, and then the handy dandy little "captcha" thing below it that confirms I am in fact a human. It seems ironically timed to me, having just read the post below about the English language and "intercourse". I've already forgotten what witty little something I was going to type, instead I shall sum this up so I can go enter the captcha- "ingrish"!
Hahahhahahahhahaha. Sorry. It made me giggle.

wow - I can almost manage to get my kids to the dentist every six months and I always forget the thing about the car every ...however many months or mile...who remembers someting after six year. I wouldn't even expect my doc to be there after six years, with everyone moving around so much.

As a veterinarian, I deal with this *all* the time...along with stupid people . There's almost enough stories to fill my *own* blog! But at least, I always smile & relate with yours, thanks!!!

So, did you tell him to come back in another 6 years?

Mr. Knucklehead said...

Hey, kudos to the guy for remembering, since he couldn't possibly have written it down on a 2009 calendar back in '03.

Joan said...

That would probably be me. If I'm feeling ok, why go back! I know!!

Stephanie said...

At least the guy doesn't have any memory problems and is trying to be left in your waiting room for the day while his daughter goes to a meeting...could be worse, right?

I would really love to come and work in your office...just for the non-stop entertainment.

I like Mr. Knucklehead's comment about not being able to write it on a calender back in '03...

you know, Dr. G you are one of 3 bookmarks on my blackberry. I can't usually log in and leave a comment, but I never, ever miss reading you! (shhh, but you are my all time fave...)

So I guess the aspirin is working for him.
