    There ya go cactus, it was in general discussion under "questions about dealing with docs"
    I too use a version like this.....I say..."now I don't quite understand how you came to that conclusion, can you explain it to me please". Works as above

    This method of dealing with Docs comes from a transaxial analysis framework its a good way of questioning anyone about things you don't agree with or think are wrong without being threatening.MHN

    OK...would you please take a moment to educate me about "transaxial analysis framework'? Dictionary.com left me hangin'!

    I Have said this to difficult doctors since I began nursing. Most of the time, it gets them off their temper tantrum and to a place where they will talk reasonably to you. If this fails, I take a different approach to the effect that I am not there to be abused or talked to like that. "transaxial analysis framework" ---EDUCATE ME PLEASE??????

    Glad it worked for you, Cactus! I've heard horror stories about some of those surgeon types...

    Transaxial analysis framework must mean "ways to keep from getting you butt chewed" .

    Several years ago when I was a "big cheeze", I'd have really felt "full of myself" if'n one on my guys/girls had used that line on me. I'd given'em every bit of knowlege I possessed on the topic at hand. Regardless of the possible reaking contempt they may have had for me, I'd have been blinded to it because of how valued they'd made me feel. I gotta remember that line!
