You know, a lot of health care professionals scare the daylights out of me. A few months ago a lady came in with a cat who had a femural fracture. It was compound, con-minuted and open. It had been open for several days so the bone was dead. It was either amputate or put the animal to sleep. And said health care professional asked: “Can’t you just PIN it?” yeah. sure. then in 72 hours watch the wound go septic, kill the cat with an agonizing death.
Physicians are the worst. Nurses are up there too. Not all, but a great many.
Then there are the people who take a few classes in psychology and couch-diagnose you in such a condescending manner that you just walk away and cut your losses. I had to do that with a gaming friend not long ago. Her self-righteous crap was just a little too much for me. I was sad about it at first. Now I just don’t give a fuck.
