A small doctor suck.

Yesterday I called out a locum (home visiting doctor) for my sick 8 month old daughter. During the exam he tried to look down her throat and she wasn't having it. He asked me to hold her head still and said he was going to have a quick look when she coughed. Of course she didn't cough. The doctor said something about it being 'typical' and then mimed slapping her four times. When he noticed the look on my face he tried to cover his butt by stroking both cheeks in the same motion.

I've rung up to complain but because it was on a Sunday the manager wasn't in. He was supposed to call me today and didn't, but I will be following it up tomorrow. I'm assuming he thought it was funny, I must have lost my sense of humour though because I'm not laughing!
