Thank you dear! I feel better tonight.
I was so darn nervous through the whole biopsy thing I regaled the doctor and the nurse with some odd but true stories of the retail world.
The funniest one was this:
A woman came up to the customer service desk with a return. I saw it was in a bag, and she proceeded to pull from the bag a USED pregnancy test! She plopped it down on the counter and demanded her money back because it was wrong. She was quite angry about it, and I had to explain that blood and urine test products were not returnable.
She was furious, and demanded her money back. I told her we couldn't do that and explained yet again about blood and urine test products, and she got really mad and said, "Then I'll sue this store! I'll call my lawyer when I get home. What's your name?"
Good luck with that. I'm still waiting to hear from the lawyer.
And another one:
A woman returned some intimate lingerie. I asked her if it was the wrong size or whatever, and she said, "No, it's the right size. I just want to exchange these for some pajamas. I put this on once and my husband wanted to get close! Can you imagine??!!!"
She was outraged. I'm glad I don't live close to her.
And another one:
A woman returned a bike; a one-speed, coaster brake bike, like those beach cruisers (I have one). I asked her if it was defective. She said, "It is! I can't pedal it up hills!"
I suggested she try an 18-speed mountain bike. I explained how the gears worked and all that, and she said, "No, that's too much trouble. I want a single-speed bike that works on hills."
Good luck with that.
We had fun with those stories, and before I knew it, the biopsy was done, we were laughing, and I can say that doctor and nurse have a wonderful sense of humor!
This was my first time with this doctor, and he was very, very kind and careful about explaining everything. I like him.
While he was down there pinching away, he shared a story too. He said a lady had looked up all her symptoms on the Internet and came in telling him what to do and how to do it, etc., etc.....and he said:
"Thank you so much for all your good hard work and research. I really admire that. But would you mind if I examine you first? It would help both of us a lot."
Ah, people are funny!
I have a good feeling tonight, and thank you all.
