    Quote from CodeteamB
    I had one recently say to me after some harmless bit of patient education (imagine snarky voice) "yeah, I know that ok? I went to medical school."

    -I shall omit the myriad prejudiced reasons that I felt this was unlikely.-

    "Do you mean you went to school to be a medical assistant?"


    "I see"

    This reminds me of the ghetto "you still can work. You can still take care of your kids" Everest commercials. Wow.
