Cry Me a River

I don't mind people using the Internet to look stuff up except when they are too stupid to use the information correctly, then try to tell me I'M the idiot. 

Ms. Dumass: "I have a severe lacrimation*"
Me: "You have....watery eyes?"
Ms. Dumass: "No!  Don't you know medical terminology??  I have a bad cut on my foot!"
Me: "Ah, I apologize.  I thought you said 'severe lacrimation'"
Ms. Dumass: "Yes, of course, that's what I said, a lacrimation!"

Some days it's just not worth bothering to try to educate nasty people who are dumber than a box of rocks.  Please don't use big words you don't understand, it merely serves to emphasize your stupidity.  Thank you. 

*For non-medical types, that would be an excessive secretion of tears.  Cut=laceration.  So very dissimilar.

I remember as a new nurse having a family member scream in my face about when I was going to activate the mediport. I had to leave the room to keep from laughing in her face.

Excellent use of the language ~! and yes, those types are hardly worth educating, never mind correcting. LOL
