Shit not to say to kids
I've been seeing real patients for the first time these last couple of weeks but this week was the first time I saw kids as patients. Basically, a school pumps in +30 school children into our clinic and the students (me) have to quickly screen them and make sure they don't have any nasty visual disorders. During the screening of the first child, I quickly learnt I needed to watch what I say.
Kid: Mister? How old are you?
Me: How old do you think I am?
Kid: I think you're 35!
Me: Haha, you're a bit off... I'M ACTUALLY 37
Kid: Woooah! That's as old as my MUM!
Me: Yeaah?? Maybe I know your mum!
