Today, I was in the hospital with rib injuries after being rear-ended by a truck. The doc said, "Well, you'll probably feel like you've been hit by a truck for a while." Everyone laughed, except me. When I said he was being insensitive, he replied, "Calm down, I'm just ribbing you." FML

Dude chill out he was just having a lil fun. I had a nasty accident and cut open my leg just barly missing the main tendon and artery . The dr had a dry sense of humor but it put me at ease. They deal with a lot of gruesome and heart break things every day. They have to make life and death choices everyday . They have to have coping mechanisms . So chill out. Sorry you didn't like him and sorry you had an accident


I like my doctors to be chatty and have a good sense of humour rather than being all business all the time. It puts me a ease and and makes me feel like they're not trying to hurry me out. I'm sorry you were in pain and probably didn't feel like laughing but it could have been a lot worse than the doctor trying to cheer you up.

Tell him your giving him the rib-eye special and when he looks at you like your retarded slam his face into your hopefully uninjured opposite flank. Then promptly request pain meds.

That doctor has a good sense of humor! Im sure OP is in pain and being rear ended sucks and everything, but OP, it's not a life threatening injury, you will be fine. Be glad the doctor is funny and is helping you out!

Actually, DocBastard has a blog, so I've been checking that every once in a while. They're actually pretty good stories about stupid patients, stupid doctors and occasionally nice patients. Just type DocBastard into google. :)

Um, look at his FML profile. If I remember correctly, he says something along the lines of "I have a blog." Plus, DocBastards humour is memorable. :)

You people don't understand good jokes - all you do is complain. At least the physician was trying to get you to cheer up. I cannot stand medical doctors that have no emotion whatsoever.

OP's doctor must be pretty optimistic because he's surrounded by despair all day and he's still making jokes! Lighten up OP....just back up and laugh at the situation at hand :P

don't be such a sensitive sally, he was being funny. gotta imagine they deal with a lot of sad stuff all day so when they do make a joke, you shouldn't get all sad
