How Do You Like Them Yankees!

This happened few years ago at another hospitals I used to work at.

There was this emergency room physician who was doing the graveyard shift. It was late at night when he went to the physician lounge to catch the last few minutes of Yankees game. In the lounge he saw two technician working on a 52” Plasma TV. Apparently they were having problems with mounting it right.

Being a nice guy, he helped those guys to take the TV off the wall and move it to the next room and went back to the ER. Those guys were very appreciative and thanked him.

In the morning the staff could not find the TV in the physician lounge. When they reviewed the video they saw the physicians helping the two “technicians” who later loaded this TV in their van and made a quick getaway. Our doctor friend of course was not very happy.

So what lesson did we learn today? Is it a) Do not help strangers. b) Call Security when in doubt! c) Stay away from free food at physician lounge.

The answer is none of the above. It is…...Why watch a Yankee game when you can watch a good Red Sox game.
