Episode 5

(an overheard conversation at an outpatient Doctor's office)
Earlier this week while I'm waiting for some blood to be drawn, I'm sorting through some typical magazines found at offices like this, and I hear this back and forth between two front office workers.

"Honest, true story. One of our heart patients called the other day, about an upcoming appointment. Sophie took the call and thought she had the patient on hold-- but didn't. The patient could hear everything. Sophie turned to Sally at the next computer and commented, I thought this broad died a month ago."
Ouch!
Embarrassing or what? Sounds like a Seinfeld episode to me.

  1. How do you hear all these interesting conversations, episodes of them? Maybe I too should start listening in.

  4. Kind of like sending a reply email and talking about someone, the someone you sent the message to by mistake. You can't get it back.

  12. Technology squashes privacy. Watch what you say. Watch what you write.

  15. Just read/viewed your episode series. Great, and this is one of the best. Kinda reminds me of my sister who had to rid her speech of an often used expression -- "This is driving me crazy." -- when she started working for a psychiatrist.
