Not Seeing Or Believing

, , , , | Right | April 16, 2010

Customer: “Something’s wrong with my vision. I’m not seeing well at all.”

Me: “Did this happen suddenly or gradually?”

Customer: “Since I woke up this morning, everything is blurry!”

(I look up her file and see that she had an exam and purchased glasses within the last month.)

Me: “So, even with your new glasses, everything is blurry?”

Customer: “Well, no. It’s fine with my glasses on. But I have worn them for a whole month! Shouldn’t my eyes be better by now?”

Me: “Ma’am, the glasses make your vision better, but only if you are wearing them.”

Customer: “What kind of a quack doctor do you have there? Thanks for nothing!”
