A RIGID MIND REFUSES TO LEARN AND WILL NOT BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO ANY NEW INFORMATION
Patient: The only different thing which I ate today was the pear. The pear must have caused the allergy.
ER Doctor: What??!! Pear? That is the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard in my entire doctor-life!! Pear??!!
A RIGID MIND WILL ONLY THINK IN A STRAIGHT AND NARROW WAY AND CAN NEVER THINK OUT OF THE BOX. IT IS LIKE TELLING THE LEOPARD TO PAINT ITS SPOTS PINK
Patient upon arriving at ER: I am having an allergy reaction.
Administrator: Please have a seat first and we will register you.
Patient: I am having an allergy reaction, NOT flu or cough. I need to see the doctor NOW!!
Admin: You have to register first before the doctor attends to you. It is our procedure. That is the way we do things here. Have a seat first!
A RIGID MIND WILL THROW HISSY FITS AND SCREAMS LIKE A BITCH WHEN PRODDED, POKED OR QUESTIONED.
Patient: Can you explain this to me in lay man's term
Doctor: Why do you want to know so much? Why are you asking so many questions? You want my job issit?! Go to medical school lah then!!!!!
A RIGID MIND IS MISS OR MISTER KNOW-IT-ALL
Patient: Here is a detailed explanation which my immunologist/allergist wrote for doctors to understand me. (hands paper to doctor)
Doctor: (takes paper and chucks it aside at table without even glancing at it) I do not need to look at it. Everything I need to know is already in my mind. You already have eczema, so there is no need to go into details or to understand your allergies. You have allergies. Period.
A RIGID MIND IS A LAZY MIND. AND POOR ATTITUDE IS A SIGN OF A LAZY MIND
Patient: Good afternoon. I need to speak to the surgeon as I am having an allergy reaction to the painkillers. I only had the surgery yesterday.
Doctor's assistant (D.A.): The doctor has gone home and will be on leave for one week.
Patient: Can you get him to call me or can you call him to tell him of my predicament?
D.A.: He is on leave already. I don't have his number.
Patient: What do you mean you don't have his number? He is the hospital's employee. I'm just asking you to call him. I'm not asking you to call the doctor to go BACK to the hospital. I just had my surgery yesterday and it is hurting like
D.A.: I told you he is not here.
Patient: Is there any other doctor I can speak to then?
D.A.: They are all very busy madame. Just eat the medication and you will be fine. (hangs up)
A RIGID MIND HAS NO COMMON SENSE
Customer: Do you have any products which are unscented? I am allergic to fragrances.
Sales assistant: Maybe if you breathe through your mouth when using our products, then you won't be affected by the perfume? Or maybe you breathe less when using the products?
A RIGID MIND IS OBNOXIOUS
Patient: I do not understand what you are saying.
Doctor: Why don't you just go home and surf the Net and find out? Even a child could do it!
A RIGID MIND DOES NOT THINK
Allergy Sufferer: I am allergic to fragrances. I can have a fatal allergy attack from being exposed to them.
Supposedly Friend: Oh ok.
2 Weeks later
Supposedly Friend: I hope you don't mind that I use perfumes, as I just love perfumes and I would just DIE if I did not use perfumes!!!
Need I say more?
