He’ll Have You In Stitches

| Working | February 14, 2014

(My mom takes me to the doctor’s to get some stitches removed. It’s not unusual for our family doctor to have students, and he usually sends them in first to get the preliminary work done.)

Student Doctor: *looking at chart* “Okay, so you’re in for… ROS?” *looks at my mom in confusion* “What does ROS stand for?”

Mom: “Could it possibly stand for ‘removal of stitches’?”

Student Doctor: *looks at chart again* “Why, yes, I suppose it could. Why would you suggest that?”

Mom: “Maybe because we’re here to get her stitches removed?”

Student Doctor: “… Oh.”
