A woman went to the
emergency room, where she was seen by a young new doctor. After about 3
minutes in the examination room, the doctor told her she was pregnant.
She burst out of the room and ran down the corridor screaming. An older
doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was. After listening to her
story, he calmed her down and sat her in another room. Then, the doctor
marched down the hallway to the
first doctor's room.
"What the hell's wrong with
you?" he demanded. "This woman is 68 years old, she has two grown children
and several grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?!!"
The new doctor continued to write on his
clipboard and without looking up said, . . . .
"Does she still have the hiccups?"
