Fun at the Dr Office

So yesterday I had my 29 week check up. Everytime I go to the doctor I have to fill out this purple paper as to why I'm there. Most of the time I just kinda sorta fill it out because I'm OB and not really there because I'm sick. Yesterday I decided to have some fun. About half-way on the page there is a word bank where you can circle your symptoms. I circled about 10 of them. They all applied.
  • Frequent Urniation
  • Belly Pain
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Weight Gain
  • Tiredness
  • Hearburn
  • Headache

Those are just a few of the things I circled. I handed the paperwork back to the lady at the front desk, smiled and took my seat. Later when the doctor came in the room he shook his head and said he has some patients he limits to just three symptoms on any given visit. I looked at him as innocently as I could and said, "But they all applied". Then I burst out laughing because the look on his face was funny. He wrote in really big letters over the word bank "OB".

I think he needs a seperate form for the OB patients because that word bank was just too much fun!

I score 100% on that test too.
They forgot "cranky" though.

Sometimes it is good to have a jokester like you to break the seriousness of the day! :o) We get tickled when people misspell things on their intake forms.

Glad you are feeling better save the aforementioned symptoms. :o)

Next time why don't you write poems on the form for example:

roses are red
this form is blue
if you give it to me again
i'll boil you into a stew
