Who's got balls? Me. (Sometimes.)
During my Emergency Medicine rotation in med school, I was supposed to stay in my ER shift until 8PM. But at 6PM there wasn't a lot to do and the ER attending told me he didn't have time for me. We had to write up a few cases from the rotation, so I said, "How about if I go to the library and work on my write-up now?"
If he had been nice, he would have said, sure, go work on it and I'll see you tomorrow. But instead he told me to go work on it and then COME BACK afterwards. This attending was very suspicious of med students and would never sign my attendance sheet until the last thirty seconds of the shift, because he said when he was a med student, he used to always sneak out early. (Me: "And look how great a doctor you turned out to be!")
So naturally, instead of working on the write-up, I went out to dinner with a friend of mine for two hours. When I came back and made a show of being there, he was like, "So let's see your write-up!"
So here comes that ballsy part: I said to him, "Oh, I didn't print it out." Then I added: "Would you like me to go print it now?"
Hold your breath...
"No, that's okay," he said.
What if he had said yes? I don't know what I would have done. Claimed the printer was broken? Gone to the library and started typing like crazy? Probably the latter.
