There’s no point talking to someone who doesn’t care. Or is too stupid to understand you.
A technician at an ophthalmologist’s office told me this afternoon that he had to touch my eye to conduct a test.
He had a can of some power drink nearby.
I asked him what it was.
He said it was tea but that it had some caffeine to help him on the long drive back to Las Vegas.
Understandable. After his shift!
I told him my Dad once noticed an assisting physician’s hand trembling.
Dad asked if the doctor had coffee that morning and the answer was yes.
My Dad told him that he would never assist him in surgery again.
And that was that.
I told this story to the technician and it did not register. He smiled a little and moved on to the test.
You can’t help someone who doesn’t want help or is too stupid to recognize help when it is given.
No point talking.
And that is that.
