7 comments:

  1. One of my residents used the phrase, "We need to touch base with _____." Like every other sentence that came out of her mouth.

  2. "That's it. I'm running away to join the circus."

  3. Erm, Dr Grumpy, I read your blog. You *did* join the circus.

  4. My most recent overused phrase on a service where seemingly no amount of bowel regimen can bring on the poop:

    "I'd like to give you a dose of lactulose."

  5. I had one attending who used to always say "six of one, half dozen of the other." Drove me freaking nuts.
