Sunday night, 9:05 p.m.

















Mrs. Nerve: "Hello?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Hi, it's Ibee Grumpy, calling to give weekend check-out to Dr. Nerve."

Mrs. Nerve: "He's in the bathroom."

Dr. Grumpy: "Okay, can he call me back when..."

(muffled male voice in background)

Mrs. Nerve: "He says he wants to talk to you, hang on..."

(muffled male voice in background)

Mrs. Nerve: "He wants to know if Mr. Smith is still in the hospital?"

Dr. Grumpy: "He went to the rehab floor, but Dr. Nerve will need to check his follow-up CT..."

(muffled male voice in background)

Mrs. Nerve: "Hang on, he says he's out of toilet paper."

Dr. Grumpy: "Look, I'll just call back in..."

Mrs. Nerve: "No, it's okay. He asked if the Jones girl had any more seizures?"

Well at least he didn't ask for the phone while he was on the toilet.
I never cease to be amazed by the people who have conversations on their cell phones while in the ladies room!

They weren't inconvenienced, so why were you? You weren't even there?

Thank goodness we don't have smell-a-phones! Sheesh!!!

Chris Britt said...

Why is the practice so commonplace now? Ugh...

I don't know, those type of conversations always leave me a little wiped out.

Officer Cynical said...

I hope you washed your hands after you hung up.

TMI, Dr. and Mrs. Nerve!

"Oh, and he also wants to know if you have any good tips for cleaning shower curtains?"

Chris Britt said...

Do you suppose he was on his laptop or iPad reading Doc Grumpy's blog?? You never know...

Poor guy. The reps probably brought something that didn't agree with his delicate constitution.

Andie said...

I wonder if it was a two-flusher?

Would this be a HIPAA violation, since the wife is involved and hearing the details? Not that anyone's going to hunt Dr. Flush down n bust him, but still curious.

Nana said...

I just say, 'have him/her call me' and HANG UP right quick!

sorry, but many times i have gotten middle of the night pages and had to pee. and answered the page while peeing. fact of life for an old man.

Chris Britt said...

I too have returned middle of the night pages while peeing... I often feel like an old man but truth of the matter is, I'm 30...

Communication hasn't been the same since the advent of cordless phones.

Please stop, you're trying WAY too hard (and it's NOT working). You should have just stopped after the first kind-of-funny comment, especially with the peddling of a blog. *facepalm*

HIPAA violation... I'd be curious about that one as well.

pharmacy chick said...

Jeremy, don't see any need for an attack here. Good Grief!

DataGirl said...

At least he didn't take the phone and talk to you himself! Imagine the noises you would have heard in the background had he done that!

You all should be nicer to
Dr Porcelain, he has really taken some lumps over this.

Ms. Donna said...

AWWWWWWWW ... Youre' a Doc or a Yak herder. Surely you've seen what was going on before!

But other posters are right - cell phones will lead to civilization's downfall.
