the difference…

got this email forwarded to me today, and in light of my recent piss-off-ed-ness regarding the bazillion appointments i have to have with the lady-doctor, it’s ever so appropriate:

Hospital Admission:

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and
has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment,
then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn’t
reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for a
month from then. Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever. The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time take me to a vet…….WOOF!
