    Maybe she’ll call on them just to get rid of them.

    I’m just afraid to even contemplate what they’re there for… OMG, I gotta get some BB!!! That was too much for me to deal with! GAAAAAHK!!!

    Aha!
    Funnier if you remember that Julie can’t spell.

    I googled “Jobe” …. found nothing that made sense…
    then I realised it’s probably supposed to be “Job.”
    As in “Burl has the patience of Job.”


    Speaking of patience…
    the pun on the wall reminds me of a sign I loved, in my doctor’s parking lot years ago:

    “Patient Parking Only.”


    I told him it cracked me up, but he couldn’t see why…
    which also cracked me up.

    And is the receptionist calling out “Harris” cos she can’t read “Wallace?”


    Sounds about right.

    …keep talking like that and they’ll never call your name.

    And since when were Joy’s boobs conversation starters? Maybe if she named them Denali and Hood.
    Like purple, I cringe to wonder why Burl is so anxious to see the doc. What horribly kinky thoughts spring to mind. Ugh!

    I’m thinking Jobe is a bible character, but hey, what do I know about the bible except that most of the one’s I’ve seen belong to this Gideon person, who stays in the same motels I do.

    Dogsniff…. yes, I was talking about the Bible story…
    but his name is spelled J-o-b, not J-o-b-e…

    It’s used metaphorically in connection with patience.


    But usually not patients….
    well, except at my doctor’s office, where patients do need the patience of Job.

    He’s really careless with his Bibles, too. Must go through loads.

    The Pennys are out of filched medical supplies already? Burl’s non-malignant mole/freckle is acting up? Burl’s ready for another dose of disability? Are they at the Procto and is Burl on the cusp of poetic justice?

    Thanks. You just made me think of the dreaded “bandit”, or “finger wave”. I’m a little nauseated right now…
