Duh Moments

Duh Moment #1

Patient needs PAP Smear done. I tell her to undress & lie on couch while I prepare the equipment. I return to the examination couch & notices that she still has her underwear on.

Me: "Er...you need to remove your underwear in order for me to do the PAP Smear."

Patient: "Oh, is it? I need to remove my underwear?"

Me: "Er...yeah" (Inner Me: "Duh")

Duh Moment #2

Patient complains of headache. After taking history, I tell her I am going to check her blood pressure.

Patient: "Do you want me to take off my watch?"

Me: "Er...no." (Inner Me:"Duh")
