To be fair, it was an ambiguous question.

So yesterday, I was at the office of a new prosthetic outfit to evaluate them as they evaluated me. The doctor is going down a checklist of activities and asking me if I do them or not.

Doctor: "Do you climb ladders?"
Me: "Yes."

Doctor: "Do you do home repairs?"
Me: "Yes."

Doctor: "Do you do lift heavy objects?"
Me: "Yes."

Doctor: "Do you do care for children?"
Me: "Not particularly."

She stopped and gave me one of those raised eyebrow looks, at which point I realized that I had totally misinterpreted the question. Oops.

Still a decent outfit though. Very knowledgeable about the type of legs I'm using and the associated issues. I think that they're going to get my business.

  1. The correct answer being, "Only if they've been properly butterflied and grilled"?

    Doc: "Do you routinely use guns?"

    Me: "Are you a fucking idiot?"

  6. That's OK, I was asked once as a child in what area most women have naturally curly hair. Apparently the CORRECT response was Africa.

  8. I don't much like kids either, other than my own. Especially in restaurants where they are acting out and the parents let them do it.

  9. HAHAHA!
    Good answer!

    Usually, I don't care for OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN.
    Because they don't behave as I think is appropriate, and i am not empowered to do anything about that!

    One of the reasons I eat in bar & grills (when I can afford to). Many times bars limit access of juveniles!
    :-)
    Having said that - a well-mannered person of any age is a joy!
