    Has A Bone To Pick With Your Prognosis

    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Bad Behavior, Employees, Health & Body, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I’d fallen on my hand while being slung playing a local game of AFL football. After waiting for over two hours in the emergency room and having an x-ray on my wrist I finally get to talk to the doctor.)

    Doctor: “Well, it doesn’t look like you’ve hurt yourself, so you can leave.”

    Me: “Do you mind if I have a look? I’m studying exercise rehabilita—”

    Doctor: “I do mind. It’s a busy Saturday and I don’t care to have my opinion verified by you.”

    (She finally gives me something for the pain and I get a lift home. On Monday morning I get an interesting phone call.)

    Caller: “Hi, this is the head of radiology at the hospital. We were just reviewing the x-rays from your emergency. We need you to come in as you’ve actually broken a bone in your wrist.”

    (I was in the hospital by mid-afternoon and in surgery two days later to pin my scaphoid back together. Luckily I didn’t need a bone transplant from my hip. Turns out she thought it was two separate bones. It was nice to have the head of radiology make a cast for me, though, with his sincere apologies!)

    Acting Like A Complete Jerky

    | England, UK | Bad Behavior, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Liars/Scammers

    (I work with a rather attractive 20-something woman. She is okay, but gets away with murder and often gets tea or coffee brought for her as she is the only attractive woman in the office.)

    Coworker: *to me* “Wow! What’s that?”

    Me: “Oh this? It’s jerky. Really good stuff.”

    (The attractive coworker’s head pops up.)

    Coworker: “Let’s see.”

    (I throw the closed packet over.)

    Coworker: *as he throws it back* “Hmm, looks really good.”

    (The attractive coworker hasn’t stopped listening.)

    Me: “Yeah, bit pricy but tastes great. Texture is soft really good.”

    Attractive Coworker: “Are you going to share it out, then?”

    Me: *a bit put back* “Well, I wasn’t opening it yet. Maybe …later?”

    (I forget about it for a few days. The next week I open it up and leave it out of sight on my desk. I leave the office and come back to see the attractive coworker quickly walking back to her desk.)

    Me: “Hey, [Coworker], I’ve opened up the jerky. Want a piece?”

    (I can just see out of the corner of my eye the attractive coworker, stuffing something in her mouth.)

    Me: “It’s bit spicy, though.”

    (I hold the bag out to the attractive coworker, who waves me away as she is struggling to chew ‘something’.)

    Me: “…and it only gets hotter as you chew.”

    (At this point the attractive coworker’s eyes are watering at she almost dives for the bin, spitting out the jerky she stole before running out the door.)

    Coworker: “Serves her right, silly cow. She is always trying to get something for free even if she doesn’t like it.”

    (Now, every time I bring something in, I’m always quick to mention that it is a bit spicy. I haven’t caught her taking anything since.)

    Their Humor Is Handicapped

    , | OH, USA | Bad Behavior, Bigotry, Bosses & Owners, Coworkers

    (I am working the closing shift by doing dishes. All night when there is no customer at the drive through, my coworker on the grill yells what he thinks are funny impersonations of people with mental handicaps.)

    Coworker: “[Manager]! It’s impossible to make [My Name] laugh!”

    Manager: “What? No it isn’t.”

    (I am so focused on doing the dishes that I don’t notice her coming up behind me.)

    Manager: “Hey, [My Name], look.” *pulls out her phone, showing a funny animated GIF involving two cats*

    Me: *bursts out laughing*

    Manager: “See? I told you it is possible to make her laugh!”

    Coworker: “But she doesn’t laugh at me!”

    Me: “Because you’re not funny. And you do realize that my little brother has a disability, right?”

    (My coworker left me alone for the rest of the night!)

    Bedside Manner-less

    | Dover, DE, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I’m 15 years old and am noticing that a mole I’ve had since birth on my stomach area is becoming red and inflamed and is extremely sensitive to the touch. I tell this to my mother, and she arranges a dermatologist appointment.)

    Doctor: *to me* “So, are you [Mom]?”

    Me: “No, I’m [My Name]. My mom just made the appointment.”

    Doctor: *nods* “Okay, then, what’s the problem?”

    Me: *lifting my shirt just enough to show the mole, which happens to be inflamed and red at the time of the appointment* “This mole on my stomach’s been really sensitive lately. It’s inflamed and red and just the fabric of my shirt moving against it hurts a lot.”

    Doctor: *pokes the mole* “Well, it doesn’t look like cancer.”

    (While I was relieved to later have a biopsy done and hear the results were cancer-free, I never really felt all that comfortable hearing the news from this doctor.)

    Sadly The Whine Will Dine

    | West Midlands, England, UK | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Employees, Theme Of The Month

    (The supermarket is unusually busy, with long queues at the tills. I only have a dozen items in my basket, and walk up to the shortest queue.)

    Cashier: *looking up at me* “Sorry, I’m closing this lane after this lady.”

    Me: “Oh, fine.”

    (I move to the next queue along. Another customer with a trolley full joins the short line.)

    Cashier: “Sorry, I’m closing this lane after this lady.”

    Customer: *whining, sighing, making a childish fuss* “Oh, but, oh please… I just … oh… please…”

    Cashier: “Okay. Go on, then…”

    (I hate it when whiners and complainers get special treatment. It’s a kick in the pants for polite, respectful customers!)
