I went to the OB/GYN today…. which in itself is not an out of the ordinary experience I’ll grant you… especially given that I have spent years on IVF treatments which required uncountable gynaecological procedures! I should be used to it by now, yes?
Well today… I was on the table, in the most indecorous of recumbent positions (you know what I’m talking about, girls), and had a conversation that went a bit like this….
Gyno: So…. Borys…. what sort of work do you do?
Me: At the moment, I’m a Wireless Broadband Consultant for Goliath….
Gyno: Oh, right… you support those new blue USB modems thingys do you?
Me: (hesitant) Err … yeeessss…
Gyno: You know… I was down the Gold Coast over the weekend, and l couldn’t get my thing to connect… all I kept getting was ‘page cannot be displayed’…..
Oh please! Give me a break! Is it really appropriate to pump me for IT support while you’re down there?!?!? How embarrassment…
So much worse than trying to make small talk with your dentist! 🙁
