hercule poirot & dr obnoxious


somewhere along the trail of doctor-hopping, you'd have met dr obnoxious - the one grumpty, arrogant & condescending i'm-the-wise-doctor-you're-the-lowly-patient type.

have no fear. i have colleagues like that, too. the other day, someone threw one of dr obnoxious's personal belongings into the rubbish bin. needless to say, he was all worked up & started pointing fingers & making accusations. of course, without evidence, no one took him seriously.
another colleague joked privately that we'll need someone like hercule poirot, the famed detective from agatha christie's imagination to find the culprit. i remember watching Murder on the Orient Express in my student's days, & i won't be surprised if there were (at least)12 sets of finger prints on the discarded item.

such is the "popularity" of dr obnoxious.

hahahaa.. when I imagined the scenerio, I had to smile.. 12 sets of fingerprints showed how "unpopular" the owner is...
By the way, Miss Marple might be around if Poirot is not.. hehee...

LOL. Ohhhh...I can bet it's not going to change him one bit; bcoz true to form, he will continue to believe that only he is right and that he has been a victim of workplace bullying/ harassment :)

So...yup! you can be assured that he will continue to be insufferable; or probably worst, bcoz now everybody is a suspect. Jeng! jeng! jeng!

Claire,

somehow detective work doesn't seem a job a woman would want to do, so no, i can't imagine ms marple here.

Andrea,

on the contrary, he's been victimising his subordinates & he's not letting up.
