"Not all of your patients are dumb..."

There was a fly buzzing around triage tonight. I had been chasing it for hours and was becoming mildly crazy. I made a comment to the tech at the front desk that I hoped it wasn't a tsetse fly.

While the tech looked at me like my hair was on fire, the patient sitting in the seat nearest to where I was chasing the fly said, "Ah, what's a little African Sleeping Sickness between friends?"

I must have duplicated the hair on fire look, because he laughed and said, "Hey, not all your patients are dumb!"

Touche, sir. Touche.
