An older gentleman had an appointment to see the urologist who

shared offices with several other doctors. The waiting room was filled

with patients.

As he approached the receptionist desk he noticed that the

receptionist was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo

wrestler. He gave her his name.

In a very loud voice, the receptionist said,

'YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE;

YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?'

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around

to look at the very embarrassed man.

He recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied,

'NO, I'VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION,

BUT I DON'T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS.'

CHEERZ:D

Last year when I came in for a yearly, the receptionist loudly exclaimed "since you're here for a pap smear, I need you to fill this paperwork out".

Gee, thanks, $%#&, I really wanted to tell the rest of the semi-crowded waiting room that I get to put my feet in the stirrups and have a doctor look at my crotch! :icon_roll

I went into one of those after hours doctors clinics/mini emergency departments and the receptionst seemed like the rude type and she told the woman in front of me in a loud enough voice that the 40 other people there could hear:

"SO WHEN DID YOU HAVE YOUR ABORTION?"

Now of course teh whole room of people went silent and some were like "what a whore" and "baby killer" et cetera, the pt started crying...

The receptionist was meaning miscarriage (abortion being the medical term) but to the general public it has a different meaning, and of course the poor lady had MCed her baby, not willfully ended it's life!

And how did I find out? After the woman ran to the nearest toilet to sob, the receptionst said to me "Oh, yuou think I should have used the term misccariage?"

Doesnt' matter what the woman had or did you shouldnt' be telling me. Not too professional. As it was, that lady didn't keep her job much longer after that.

I just feel so sory, some of this people could not even make through CNA school, so they become secretaries thinking that they own the facility,

you know what, they are like little time bombs, and gossip machines! they are so nosy, and talk on doctors, ad nurses back!!!!

and say that their job is a pain.. (allthough some just sit around and eat candy all day complaining about mindless stuff) while other wil bable about their co-workers lives...

*****

There are great and some really helpfull people out there, don't get me wrong...

but it is also full of frogs!!! who knows nothing more then eat candy and ***** around!
