So I just got home from the doctor and he's kind of an ass.

I go in with my mom since we have appointments at the same time and it's just easier for us to go in together. She has to get her test results (brain scan of some sort) and I want to know if my ear infection is gone.

When he finally comes in to see us he gives mom her results first: "They couldn't find your brain on the scan, woman's brains are too small so they didn't find anything!" Which apparently means that there was nothing wrong with her. But hey, when someone's finding out if they have a tumor or something that's totally the time to make shitty jokes!

Then he has to look in my ears: "Okay, close your other ear please. In women the light just shines straight through!" I'm all clear in my ears though so that's good I guess?

We didn't even say anything in there, we were kind of just sitting there going "did he really just say that?" and trying to figure out what the hell he was saying, he doesn't speak very clearly so it's hard to tell what he's trying to say. Really strong accent + really fast talking + mumbling + shitty jokes makes it really hard to sort out useful information from random shit.

The appointment went okay other than him making stupid jokes and us not being able to understand him but I refuse to see him again, he's a pretty terrible doctor. It wasn't just the two moments I wrote out here either, it was a bunch of little things in the whole appointment too.

Mom doesn't want to complain about him but I do, is it worth calling about do you think?
