As you know, I tend to ramble on about medical stuff, but someone recently posted the need to sometimes keep things a bit more lighthearted.
I just saw this story:
Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
..... The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
..... The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.
