After only four minutes in consultation, she burst out of the room, screaming as she ran down the hall.
An older doctor was able to stop her and asked her what the problem was.
She sobbed as she told him her story about what the younger doctor had said during the consultation.
After listening to her, the older doctor he had her sit down and relax in another room.
He then marched down the hallway to a room at the back of the medical clinic where he found the first doctor.
The older doctor demanded angrily, “What is the matter with you? Mrs. Smith is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren…and yet you informed her she was pregnant?”
The new younger doctor continued to write on his clipboard.
Without looking up at the older doctor, he inquired, “Does she still have the hiccups?”
