I Don’t Have to Wear a Mask!

26 Aug

The Squire and I went to the doctor this morning and the conversation turned to people who refuse to wear masks. The good doctor had on two; one was a filter and the other the actual mask. He knows my situation and nodded at me. “If you can do it, anybody can.” Then he laughed and told us about something that had happened a few days ago.

His staff had called him out front to help with a new patient who had absolutely refused to put on a mask. He spoke to her himself but she had become more and more belligerent, and kept insisting that she did NOT have to wear a mask. Finally, he shrugged and agreed with her.
“You’re right, Mrs. Droopsnoot, you do not have to wear a mask. And by the same token, I do not have to accept you as a patient.”

He turned to the receptionist and said, “Remove Mrs. Droopsnoot from my schedule, and do not rebook her.” He said the woman was still squawking when he closed his office door.

    That is so true about the lights (at the end). It’s all so ridiculous.

    I love the beekeeper meme. And the doctor’s response to his belligerent patient was perfect!

    Three cheers for your doctor for standing his ground. Good he sent her off.
