no bets

doctors shouldn't bet, because by nature, we're supposed to be averse to taking risks, whether calculated or not.

i was on-call the other day when my obstetric colleague asked me to do a procedure on his patient. he said he'd bet that the patient would scream her head off during the procedure; otherwise, he'll buy me a beer, not that i'm the drinking type.

to his & my surprise, she didn't even let out a whimper.

so today, after a hard day at the hospital, i'm having beer after dinner.

& someone else wants a piece of the action as well!

cheers!

like i said, doctors shouldn't bet.

Medie,

absolutely none, if they don't drive.

SAHM,

a small sip is harmless, esp. under strict parental supervision!! besides, this is sweet, unlike local beers.

Dear Doc, next time can you please tell your colleague this: Usually the term "buy you a beer" means "go to the pub. buy a beer. have some pub grubs". NOT, give you a bottle of beer. LOL
