Today, I went to the dentist to get a tooth filled. The nurse just finished taking my info when the doctor came in and started drilling. Through my chorus of screams he realized he'd forgotten to numb me. His only response was, "Guess I forgot to numb ya, huh?" while giggling. FML

You should have kicked him in the crotch to see if he had numb nuts, or just was one.

Some people just shouldn't be in a medical field. Loons.

I'm picturing more of a Peter Griffin silly-giggle, not an evil cackle laugh.

And am I the only one here picturing him laughing like quagmire?Really?No one? Well, almost all my comments are buried,so.....

That would be Jigsaw's doll not the Chucky doll..

Some jobs just aren't worth the money...

Literal humor... Well unless they're farmers, of course :)

and people think veterinarians are a joke...

56 - Where have you heard that? The few doctors I know have INFINITE respect for vets. I've never heard anyone down-talk the profession. It's like being a normal doctor except all your patients have different anatomies, potential diseases/abnormalities, they can't tell you any symptoms that aren't readily apparent

You do realize that a vet has to be familiar with a wide variety of anatomy while human doctors only have to be familiar with one (maybe two, if you count babies)

I just read this entire conversation/ string of comments stoned and I don't have a ******* clue what you're on about.

yeah, but do it after he's done. i wouldn't want to piss off a guy that's gonna have a very sharp drill in my mouth..

Should have smacked him. "Guess I forgot to control myself".

Or tell him that you wont pay. then say: "Guess I forgot my wallet this morning.."

don't forget to giggle at the end so its passive aggressive.

I would have been too busy crying.

@#4 My three year old baby cousin did this exact thing! She punched her dentist in the face and waddled as fast as she could out of the office & into the waiting room. Her mouth was filled with cotton/sponges, blood on the bib, and everything. The dentist didn't numb her before the procedure and she was too young to speak for herself, so she made a break for it. Haha. :)

If the nurse was standing there,tell him that they'll be paying for the filling,or you'll be contacting an attorney...while giggling...

Is it classified as a "nurse"? I know where I am from we have dental assistants, if they called themselves nurses they would be laughed at. And I don't recall ever seeing a nurse at the dentist.

why does this somehow remind me of jerry seinfeld's dentist? After jerry pisses him off of course hahah

Actually, this reminds me of the dentist in Finding Nemo - you know, P. Sherman at 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.

I think OP was yearning for an es-cah-pay

@#93 I will never forget that address for as long as I live. Thanks Dori.

It doesn't matter to them; as long as the procedure is still done properly, they make profit. Some careers can rob you of your ability to empathize...

"Son, be a dentist. You have a talent for causing things pain. Son, be a dentist. People will pay you to be inhumane!"

Sir, my hat is off to you ... one of the few roles I have seen Steve Martin in and liked.

You should've slapped him and see if he would still giggle after that

I bit my dentist once, yet he still laughed. It was depressing. I was hoping to cause him immense pain.

Threw my chorus of screams? Are you a ventriloquist OP? I Geuss so.

FlowerMama 20

They don't block your throat in any dental procedure I've heard of, so I see no reason why OP wouldn't have been able to scream, even if it sounded a little muffled through the dentist's hand in his mouth.

"Haha, I just committed malpractice. Let's laugh about it so you won't sue me."
