An Operating Theater Without An a Operating System

| Working | February 6, 2015

(I have to go for a diagnostic mammogram to follow up on an anomaly that showed up on my screening mammogram. Understandably, I am a bit nervous that I may have cancer. I have the new imaging done and I am called back into the examining room for my results. The tech pulls up my images on the computer and began to click on certain areas of the image.)

Tech: “Wow, that’s odd.” *silence* “Huh, that is really strange.” *more silence then exclaims* “Oh, my God!”

(The tech runs out of the room. Needless to say I am feeling very scared. Another lady comes and starts clicking on the images.)

Woman: “Wow, that is odd. I have never seen anything like this before, I hope this isn’t fatal.”

(At this point I am fighting back tears and am shaking like a leaf.)

Woman: “Well, I guess we will have to shut it down and reboot.”

Me: “Are you kidding me?! I was terrified!”

(I never get an apology for scaring me. To add insult to injury, the original tech asks me:)

Tech: “Have you had any trauma to the chest, as we can’t find the anomaly that sent you here originally.”

Me: “The only chest trauma I experienced was from the second mammogram!”

Tech: “Well, you don’t have to be so snarky.”
