>Pay Attention Please II
>So a while back, I made a post about how the cashier at Dunkin Donuts always seemed to fail at repeating back my order to me.
This shit has gotten out of control.
There is a new D&D on campus that I have been going to, and while the cashier is young, pretty and plenty bubbly, her read backs are absolutely out of left field. So for fun, I started keep track. Over the past two weeks she batted 2/13 in being able to correctly repeat back the phrase “medium cinnamon coffee, creame and two equal”. Try that yourself, I bet you got it right the first time. If I kept my mouth shut, I would get the correct coffee order a mere 15% of the time.
So why post about this on a medical themed blog? Perhaps you are wondering if I have some sort of addiction in that I go to Dunkin Donuts 13 times in two weeks?
I just wonder if there is anything I fail at quite as badly as this in terms of medicine. Does a patient say RLQ pain and all I hear is appy appy appy from that point on regardless of whatever else they say? I would hope not, but then again, is anyone keeping track?
