Overheard on Twitter

The other day someone I follow on Twitter was waiting in the ER with his wife who was getting treatment for post surgery complications.   If you’ve ever been treated at an ER, then you know there isn’t much privacy in many of those treatment areas.   Curtains are the only walls between you and your fellow citizens who may be receiving treatments for Mesothelioma, gunshot wounds or scorpion stings.   Anyhow, I thought it was funny when this person tweeted that he overheard a woman asking the doctor if the staples they were using to close her wound would rust.   It was even funnier when he tweeted that she didn’t seem to believe the doctor when he said no.
