Talking Dictionary571. Doctor, Heel Yourself


571. Marty was in a waiting room at the foot clinic. It was his first visit with Dr. Bunyan. A man entered the room. He was wearing jeans and a green, short‐sleeve scrubs shirt. The name of the clinic was on the shirt. The man smiled broadly and said, "What can I do for you today?" Marty thought, Well, for starters, you could introduce yourself. He said, "And your name is?" The man looked surprised. His smile disappeared. He said, "I'm Dr. Bunyan." He'd pushed the Off button for Charm and pushed the On button for Condescend to Elderly Patients. He answered many of Marty's questions by beginning with the words, "I said." Finally, Marty said, "Would you please stop talking down to me? My age may be 60, but my IQ isn't." The doctor chuckled. He said, "You're right. I'm sorry. We got off on the wrong foot, didn't we?" 2.5
