    Not A Fan Of Spin Doctors

    | Pennsylvania, USA |

    (I work the front desk at a doctor’s office, and one of the doctors fancies himself a musician. We give out a free copy of his CD when patients check in.)

    Patient: “What is this?”

    Me: “Dr. *** is a musician and he recorded an album. We’re giving it as a free gift to our patients.”

    Patient: “It’s free?”

    Me: “Yes, sir!”

    Patient: “But there’s a price on the back. It says $5.99.”

    Me: “That’s because it is also sold in a few local music
    stores. But we’re giving it free to patients as a thank you gift.”

    Patient: “What are you thanking me for?”

    Me: “For being a loyal patient?”

    Patient: “And all patients get them?”

    Me: “Yes. all patients.”

    (The patient looks around the room at the other two patients.)

    Patient: “They don’t have CDs!”

    Me: “They haven’t checked in yet. When they do, I’ll give them a CD.”

    (The patient sits down, but comes back up while I’m helping the next patient. I haven’t given her the CD yet.)

    Patient, to other patient: “Did you get a free CD?”

    Other patient: “Uh…no.”

    Patient, to me: “Look, I don’t mean to be rude, but you clearly gave this to me because you have feelings for me, and I’m just not interested. I think it’s really inappropriate for you to come on to me when I’m here to see the doctor, and you’ve made me very uncomfortable. Please cancel my appointment.”

    (I should mention that this guy was clearly out of my age and weight range. That, and I work for a proctologist.)
