A sensitive type

Ok, ok, not all Polish men are heartless and awful. There I was, sitting in yet another doctor's surgery, crying with frustration because the guy was on the phone and checking the computer and doing everything other than communicating with me. He noticed my imminent wobble:

-
Now you're going to cry! - he exclaimed, and smiled-
Don't cry: because then I'll start crying and then where will we be...

Indeed.

Uh oh, Pinolona's head is being turned by any random handsome sensitive doctor type!

Hey, this really is like a soap opera…

Yes indeed it is. Actually I made Pinolona up. I'm really a 23-year-old overweight single mother called Chantelle, living on a council estate in Staines (incidentally home of Siemens head office. How much fun do the receptionists there have?!)

Artur: He might have said: 'Co Pan tu robi? To gabinet ginekologiczny...'

The head of corporate marketing is a chap called Joseph King I believe, as in "Hi there, you must be Joe King"

*groans*

Yup, and goats about to deliver babies will hear: "You must be kidding!". And "Let me take a look at your ear" may have unexpected consequences when the doctor doesn't stress the hiatus.
