Note to patients: when your doctor comes into the room, it's time to PUT DOWN THE KNITTING.
Seriously, this woman I saw in clinic last week would not stop knitting the whole time I was interviewing her. It was really distracting.
And then this week, I had a patient who was flipping through a magazine the entire time I was talking to her. The best part was when she finally got to the end of the magazine she was flipping through, she picked up a new one and started flipping through that.
I have to ask: is talking to me really that boring??
No, don't tell me.
