Overheard in the ED:
While writing the prescriptions for antipyretics for a patient whose mother
had been particularly belligerent and verbally abusive throughout the ED
encounter, the mother piped up and said:
"And write for the REAL Tylenol. I've got that genetic sh*t at home and it
doesn't work worth a damn!"
Without missing a beat, the doctor replied, "Sure! I can see how that's
been a problem for you."
