The Young Doctor

An elderly woman went to the doctor’s office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors.

After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out the door and ran screaming down the hall.  An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story.

After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room.  The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard.

"What the hell is the matter with you?!" the older doctor demanded.  "Mrs. Terry is 71 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?"

The younger doctor continued writing on his clip-board, and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?"
