overheard ~

I know some of you heard this story before; but Paula's post at paulinescountrytales ~ asking what the funniest thing we ever saw at the doctors office was ~ just conjured up the memory again for me and I decided to share it one more time.  Thanks Paula!!

  I was sitting in the waiting room at the clinic. I overheard one of the receptionist gals talking to the other gal about her dog being sick and she was going to call the vet's office. Now comes the part that cracks me up~

Picture this as you read this. Imagine you didn't overhear that she was talking about a dog. After all... this is a doctor's office. Imagine you just walked into the office and overheard her on the phone.

Here's the jest of the conversation of the receptionist on the phone with the vet's office:

"When she got up she was walking with a stagger, like she was drunk. Then she went pee and started walking in circles and started to lick herself. Do you think it's a urinary tract infection?"

OMG! ~ I am freaking laughing again like a hyena inside.

In the mean time this old guy comes in the door and walks up to the counter. He has to wait because she's still on the phone. I know he had to have heard the first part of the conversation as he was walking in.

Then the receptionist says, "Well I suppose I'd lick myself too if I had that. I guess I'll see you after work."

If you could have seen the look on that old guys face!! Priceless!!

Geeze Louise... this is a doctors office! For HUMANS ~ I can only imagine what he was thinking!! LOL


Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
