Tandra Page 1737, The Quack

Visit : 

I’m sitting on my back porch looking out over the yard as the rising sun brightens the Eastern sky.

I’ll have more to say about this come my Tandra Notes Observation post and newsletter come Sunday, the seventeenth of this month. When you get to my age, you pass, by default, a lot of time in the company of “old folk”. What you notice about older persons is they pass a lot of their time complaining about their aches and pains. An over-abundance of their conversation centers along the most recent visit to the “Quack”.

In case that one went over your head. “Quack” is a derogatory label for a doctor, meaning specifically an incompetent doctor, generally a physician incompetent to the extent this guy is factually dangerous to the extreme, so much so the patient is literally taking his life in his hands to visit a Quack. On occasion the Quack is dangerous because of an agenda or he is dangerous from industrial strength stupidity.

The end result makes no practical difference. If you are dead, you don’t worry over much if you have assumed room temperature through malice or because of stupidity.

I have generally taken to referring to a medical person as a “Quack” by matter of routine. Sorry for the extended explanation, but I thought it might be worthwhile so my readers will understand to what I am making reference when I use the label “Quack”. Now you know.

I have told this story several times, generally in one-on-one conversation with my friends. I think I have not previously posted the story on this site; Years ago I had a skin rash on my legs below the knees. Whichever home remedy I tried I could not cause the rash to go away. Of consequence I went to see the Quack.

When I went into the examination room I said; “What’s with this rash and how do I get rid of it?” The Quack said, “I don’t know!” That was a lot of help. The Quack charged me a hundred bucks for the office visit.

I could have said, “I don’t know what is causing the rash nor can I figure out how to get rid of it.” myself and for free. I gave up on going to the Quack after that and I have been better off and also saved money. My advantage is that I have generally been blessed with excellent health for all my life. I suppose you can make the case I am, by blessings of The Lord, best able to thumb my nose at the Quack. I understand people with medical issues feel an urgent need to regularly visit the Quack and I feel sympathy for them. I wish them all the best and pray their visits turn out better than did mine in the story above.

As I said, I’ll have more on this issue come the weekend. Stay Tuned.
