When doctors dictate, they’re usually just “statin’ the facts, ma’am….” It’s dry, boring, and to the point. When friends talk, it’s different. They share things that they wouldn’t normally tell a stranger, an acquaintance, or sometimes even some of their in-laws. 😉 When lawyers talk, it’s different, but in a different way. What you need to listen for when lawyers talk is what they *don’t* say! When enemies or frenemies start chatting, it just gets downright nutso. Thoughts?
Hi there! I have fantasized about creating a blog for about a year now. A very wise niece of mine told me to only blog about something I was passionate about. Here goes…
Snarky = I’m sassy, irreverent, and I will call ’em like I see ’em… (with minimal use of instant replays!)
Socratic = If I think you’re wrong, I will respond to your statement with a question. If I think you’re right, I will also respond to your statement with a question, just to make sure that you know that you know what you’re talking about. 🙂 This is the method that Law Schools use to educate Law Students. It works quite well and encourages Informed and Independent Thought Processes.
Scribe = The person who formerly followed a doctor around and took notes on the exam,the findings, and what was discussed between the patient and the doctor. Formerly known as an Expert Witness, or a Medical Transcriptionist (aka… Medical Language Specialist… aka… Medical Editor….) Currently known as Outsourced, Offshored, Underemployed, and Underpaid…. but still workin’ from home, on her butt with a laptop…. 😉
“He also sees the dermatologist for skin issues.”
Really? Who might he have seen instead? The urologist? The neurologist? The gastroenterologist? The psychiatrist? The pulmonologist?
Yup, feelin’ the snark tonight!
