When do you know your doctor is making a fool of you ?

This one happened during my surgery rotation. A major (read: PG resident, as ours is a military college) sent a patient for testing blood sugar after the OPD consultation. She came back with the report after half an hour…

Mrs.Fatlady: Doctor saab, here is the report. Please tell me if something is serious.

Maj.Clinicwala: Dont worry aunty, your report is all normal.

MrsFatlady: So?

Maj.Clinicwala: So, take the medicines i have written earlier and you will be fine.

MrsFatlady: I came from such a long distance and you say my report is fine ! You wasted my time and you knew nothing is wrong with me. You are a bad bad doctor.

Mack: Sir, just give her sugar pills.

MajClinicwala: You should be happy mam, you are all right.

MrsFatlady: But atleast give me something. I am standing for half an hour outside just to show this report. And you say i dont need medicine. I will never come to a free hospital again !

MajClinicwala: Just go away mam. You are wasting my time.

MrsFatlady: I will complaint to your professor ! You dont know anything about treatment. YOU ARE JUST A QUACK.

(and she sped down the corridor, screaming at the top of her lungs…)

See now you upset her!! People like her are happy with Vitamin pills they don't know the difference... just tell her to take once daily 1/2 hour before your first meal... would have saved MajClinicwala time arguing!!

u see, that is the point i made when i said 'give her sugar pills' ..but i guess, there is no place for placebos in our medical system.

How to write good answers in your exams... Caveman style !

Dear bored guys readers.. you already know Cruddy's story very well. This one is about his neighbour Professor Billeus Newtonsteineus who lives five caves next to the Cruddies. People call him uncle Bill (mostly behind his back).. that was supposed to be his real name but during his fresher term at college he was so impressed by his Animaliologistics professor that he renamed himself according to the binomial nomenclature. Here is a page from the internal assesment exam of his student Teddious cavemanious (..and rumors are that he used to be Caveman Teddy about an year and a half ago) ..and by the way, he is currently pursuing his PhD in the field of equine-end-gastric-discharges. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Caveman Central University - Internal Assessment Exams ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Instruction: 1.All questions are compulsory. 2.All questions carry 100 marks each. 3.There is only one question in this paper. 4.Time limit: till the examiner finishes his tea. 5.The examinee is supposed to bring h

The new Facebook template for your blog !

I just made this new design for my blog and i m feeling pretty happy about it. I know a lot of geeks are ready to grab it for their own too. But, sorry guys it is not exactly available for download. You will have to follow this step to step guide i made for u to get the end result. 1. First, get a decent image processing software like photoshop or atleast paint.net 2. Take a snapshot of an open FB page so that u can pick the exact same colours for ur header. 3.The font used in the facebook logo is called 'Klavika'. I found it on 4shared.com. 4. Once u have created an image file for the header, here comes the tricky part. When u try to replace the blog title with the image, it does not goes till the boundaries and is usually distorted. So i replaced the blog title with a 'transparent' gif image made in paint.net 5. Go to blogger's new template designer and go to background tab. Here, upload the image u created earlier in background. Don't forget t
