Inauguration Day

"I'm going to ask you some questions just to see how your memory is.  Do you know what year it is?"


"You mean two thousand six?"


"Do you know what month it is?"


"Okay.  Who's the President?"

"It's Obama.  You should know that."

"I do know.  I was seeing if you knew."

"I don't know what kind of doctor you are that doesn't know who the President is."

"I know the President.  I was seeing if you knew."

"I don't want a doctor who isn't smart enough to know the President.  How did you become a doctor without knowing something like that?"

"I know who the President is.  I just wanted to test your memory."

"No.  Stupid questions."

"I'm sorry you feel that way.  Can I ask you to draw a clock on this piece of paper?"

"I'm not doing any more of your job.  If you want to see a clock, you can make one yourself."

"Okay.  Can you tell me what brought you here today?"

"A car.  Ugh, this is ridiculous.  I drove a car."

"And who's the President?"

"I told you.  It's the guy with the hat!"

"What's his name?"

"He doesn't have a name!  Oh, you are a stupid doctor."


  1. Yes Doctor, please stop wasting time and upsetting the patients and go back to drawing your clocks!
