" vee Have Vays of Making You Talk!"

There is a new German vet at the surgery
She is thorough, rather loud and has an odd sense of humour
After she had seen William, she left me standing at the counter in front of a packed waiting room for an age until she had triple checked his med dose, then she surprisingly bellowed a rather loud
" I forgot to tell you that there is a £ 15 charge for your anal gland check! "
" You Checked William's glands not mine" I reminded her as a few of the waiting customers smiled
" Of Course I did!" She said seriously

  2. I can never understand people without a sense of humour. I often try to be a bit funny and it falls on stoney ground.

    1. Clarification can be a good thing. Especially in a crowded waiting room ;-)

    2. I hate it when that happens ... some days I am on a roll and make silly remarks and they get it ... other days I shut up and let them be dull. :)

  5. When I was young I worked at a dog groomers. Though a nasty little job, I often thought that once completed, the dogs must feel a sense of relief.

    "Better out than in" says I.

  9. bwhahahahaha! did you sit your bum on the exam table? ;-)

  10. Ha! Probably gave everyone in the waiting room a good smile. :)

  11. I'm laughing out loud, John! I would've just THOUGHT that, because, as Briony said above, my humour often is underappreciated :)

  12. Fifteen quid seems cheap for an anal gland check. Does Brunhilde wear gloves?

  13. Maybe she was just going along with YOUR humour (but I guess you would have to be there to answer that right). There is a German comedian called Henning Wehn who I find really funny. He sends himself (and the Germans) up brilliantly and he is a real treat if you don't know him already. Anna

    1. Whenever Henning Wehn is on a panel show, radio or TV, the number of times WW2 is invoked by other people on the programme makes me cringe though Henning, to his credit, always manages to shake it off and take it well. (To be fair, sometimes he himself mentions it too). I do doubt if I'll survive long enough to see the subject dropped for good and having a German guest, ANY German, appear without the last war continuing to be an issue.

  14. Ha ha, funny thing for her to bellow and a great comeback by you.

    ReplyDelete
  15. She probably had a good snort about it after you left.

  16. So what's the diagnosis? Will William the Welsh be well? Please tell us.

    1. He has had a steroid for his skin irritation and has started long term medication for it too! He was bright enough at the vets, he went around the other dogs and said hello which is him norm

  17. She probably would have checked yours for extra without batting an eyelid! :)

  18. Nails clipped and anal glands free at my vet as a courtesy. That is bad business to charge for that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. To check yours would have been much more.

    2. In what? I hear that the practice of anal-bleaching has now permeated the world of ordinary young women. Do they think they are all porn-stars, or do their boyfriends constantly beg for a peep at their fundaments? Either way, what the hell is wrong with the rusty sheriff's-badge that God gave most of us in the first place?

    3. Bleached arseholes? You were listening to woman's hour today were you not?

      Delete
    4. No, but I was told about it. I will have to listen to it on catch-up (the arse).

      Delete
    5. A young female blogger threw in a " bleached arsehole" comment at jenny murraywho never missed a beat

  20. Recall that the world's thinnest book is entitled "1,000 Years of German Humor."

    1. I own a book called, '800 Years of British Cooking'. True.

    2. Give me a recipe from 1410

    3. Ok, but I will have to find the book first. It will probably involve pottage.

      Delete
    4. Thrice boiled worts (with your pottage)

  21. Naughty, naughty (you not her of course)

  22. That's a brilliant come back despite falling on humour deaf ears.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ach! I LOVE your response. Anyway, YOUR anal gland check would have been free, I'm sure.

    1. She would have paid me hundreds

  24. Are you sure she HAS a sense of humor?

    1. She was laughing at her own jokes during the examination if that helps

      Delete
  25. Humor for the waiting room crowd!
    Loud too!

  26. I hate it when that happens ... some days I am on a roll and make silly remarks and they get it ... other days I shut up and let them be dull. :)

  27. Cheap at half the price!

  28. What happened to patient confidentiality? William should complain

  29. I used to love the foreign vets we had, great fun and generally loved English beer, in quantity. Suitcase of family farm homemade salamis from Croatia and my! best one newborn calf with umbilical hernia,me miming umbilical cord to French vet - moi - hand at my navel level pumping...to demonstrate the cord sticking out... (god I never lived that one down)

  30. John, I must say what the vet said made me cackle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's very funny. It could have worse if you had a male animal desexed.

  32. .She sounds a lot like me... say it like it is... with knobs on... if you get my drift? My husband always says "Something get lost in the translation L?"
