Overheard on our Saturday Walk…

“She used to work as a dental assistant, but she had a workplace injury and hasn’t been able to work again…”

Our curiosity piqued, Dave and I walk silently as we pass the pack of older women walking on the linear trail. I’m envisioning a drill gone rogue, or maybe a brutal severing of phalanges in the jaws of a patient.

The woman continues,

“She got her foot caught in all those wires and cords that hang down, and then she fell and smacked her head on the counter and got a concussion! She’s never been the same”

The gaggle of women coo sympathetically.

While I feel bad for the injured woman, I am genuinely disappointed it didn’t make for a more interesting story. I think I’ll stick with the image of a drill gone rogue and terrorizing everyone in the dental office.

  1. Oh Heather, hilarious! I used to work in a dental office and all I can say is, there is more gossip and backstabbing than anything intriguing! LOL

    1. That’s funny! All these years of going to the dentist, and I’ve never thought about the drama going on with the staff. I have overheard the staff at my ear doctor whispering about each other though.
