Meme (new): "Your doctor *what*?!!!?!"

Instructions: Thinking back over your medical history, or that of a close friend or family member, pick out one of the moments that was not a shining victory for the triumph of modern medical science, either through a brain fart of the doctor's, a shite doctor, or a whole area that medical science has its pants down.

I went to the dentist to get several cavities filled. The dentist's usual assistant was sick for the day, so the secretary was filling in. (Evidently she had the credentials too, but was a little out of practice.) Everyone was off their stride. The dentist was in my mouth for a while. Finally, he was done, and he handed me a mirror so I could take a look at my restored mouth.

"What's that hole there for?" I asked, pointing.

"Ooops," he said, and cranked the chair back again, and put in the filling.
