Doctors should not be allowed to be cute nor charming. I think this should go doubly for urgent care doctors.
You see, I dragged my sorry ass into the urgent care yesterday morning. I was full on crusty sick. I had crusty eyes, sinus infection breath (even though I brushed my teeth twice and used mouthwash), and smelled of night sweats. It was nothing an attractive man should have to see.
Of course I get there and get called in by a very cute man. He could have totally been a Cutie for your Tuesday. I thought FAIL! Then he starts talking to me and smiling and it turns out he is also charming. If I had more pride I would have turned around and walked away. Let the sinus infection heal itself. But I have no pride so I stayed and let himself do his job.
Because it is their job. They see nasty sick people all the time, right? Of course it hurts a lot more when a cute doctor asks if your ear itches, because apparently there is a decent amount of wax inside, than when a 70 yr old mothball smelling doctor says it.
But I did feel shitty enough to just shrug at it. I don't know why I would care in the first place, except I do think I was a Jewish Mother in a past lifetime because I just love me a cute doctor.
Anyway, I got my gnarly sinus infection diagnosis, which is awesome, and my antibiotic prescription. Note to self though, if I ever become single I am showering before heading to the urgent care. You just never know...
