>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?

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
