(A patient wants to reschedule their appointment. Since she’s said she’s unavailable at every time I’ve given her, I suggest she let me know when she’s available.)
Patient: “How about July 4th? I could come in at 1:00.”
Me: “Well, we’re closed for the holiday.”
Patient: “What holiday? There’s no holiday then!
(Before I can answer, she figures it out.)
Patient: “Oh…wait. July 4th must be the 4th of July!”
