not how I would have put it, but yes...

Today I had an appointment for my annual physical.

The nurse is taking my vitals and asking me all sorts of fun questions.

She refers to my chart and says, "So, your gynecologist is in Boston?"

ME: "Yes. She's a gynecological oncologist." Say that 5 times fast!

HER: "I see you've had a hysterectomy..."

ME: "Yep. A radical one."

HER: "Ohhh, so you don't have anything left."

Nope. Not even a comeback.

What a dipshit! Not sure I would want her as my nurse!

Wow. Her picture must be next to the definition of Insensitive in the dictionary.

I had a partial one and love my OBGYN Oncologist in Stamford.

I have to say every nurse I've encountered feels terrible and apologizes that this happened to me.

Are you sure she was a nurse?

That is hardcore.

Perhaps she was a nurse impersonator hoping to get a sneak peek behind my fashionable paper vest???

Good lord what a total cow! Did her name badge read 'Nurse Ratchet'? How did you not punch her in the face? My hand is itching to do that for you so mad am I at the nurse for you.

Next time - kick her hard and blame it on your reflexes!

I've met some dumb nurses in my time too!

You have your LIFE, and the non-child-producing-but-still-fun-bits left. And she? Needs a career change.

I woulda kicked her. Paper vest and all. Just straight to the jaw. Try checkin my chart like that, buttface.

What a beast. I like the kicking her in the jaw suggestions. You could have told her, at least they left some social skills that are not acquired in nursing school.
