 DOC, DOC....

"Here you go, you just need to take these pills for the rest of your life".

"Are there any side-effects to this medication Doctor?"

"No, No side-effects, it's really new stuff you know, oh wait, wait, there is one side-effect"

"Oh, what's that?"

"Nothing really, you'll just become an idiot (short uncomfortable silence) do you have sat nav?"

"No"

"Welll, I suppose it doesn't matter, in a few days you're unlikely to even remember your post code. OK here's your prescription and I'll see you when I see you"

"OH OK"

"Don't forget to shut the door on your way out, I know you won't, ok bye"
