During residency, I had a vacation day scheduled for a Monday. I told my attending Dr. Amnesia about it on Thursday, since I knew she was going to be off on Friday.
Well, when I came back on Tuesday, I found out from other residents that Dr. Amnesia somehow FORGOT that I was taking a vacation day, and was panicking and paging everyone when I didn't come in Monday.
Best of all, when I returned, I was hoping Dr. Amnesia could fill me in on any updates from the day before on the patients on our service (each service had one attending and one resident). She completely refused. She said, "Well, how do you think you would find out what happened with your patients? You could read the chart, couldn't you?"
Yeah. Or you could just take five minutes and TELL me.
