How to Make a Doctor Smile

Me: (upon being told that all was essentially well and curable) Oh, Dr. _______, thank you! I spent five minutes on WebMD this morning, and had myself convinced that I had a hole in my eardrum and was going deaf. Then I decided I should probably find out from a real doctor. Thank you so much!

Doc: (beaming) Well, um, that's the downside of WebMD.

(Note: a slightly modified version of this dialogue also works with librarians)

I'm glad you had a positive experience with the medical community. Most of our experiences as of late have more been along the line of, "oh, you didn't REALLY need to be worried about your baby having some sort of gigantism disorder. The first bloodtest is terribly unreliable, but we forgot to tell you not to worry about it! Ha Ha! You're paying us a big bag of money for this bullshit! Ha!"

Glad you're OK. Eat your Wheaties!
