I would think it they would have exactly the opposite thoughts. :-)
I assume kauri44 statement was a joke. :-)
One eye doctor pointed out that even though TVs wouldn’t give you vision problems, that if your kid is sitting real close to TV you should probably have their eyes tested because it might just be a sign that they are having problems with their vision and need glasses.
It is funny how some myths get started and continue. CRTs never really had this problem, at least nothing past say the 60s. But today none of the TVs are CRTs and basically have no radiation (other than light) at all coming off of the screen, let alone any harmful radiation.
@BoSundling When I was in the Air Force from 1975 to 1981 they usually did the “mass shots” using the air gun. I wonder if they ever use it these days. And I totally agree that practice is extremely important especially as @gbars70 mentioned for blood work.
In truth I’m an “easy patient” in the sense that I’m not sensitive to any pain from the needle (on the other hand some of what is in the shot burned at times). The nurse (I think it was a nurse) that gave me my first shot was really worried I hadn’t relaxed enough. I finally had say just go ahead, and sure enough nothing to it.
On the other hand people drawing blood! I have veins that you can drive a truck through and I have had some people miss them! In fact had one go in one side and out the other. I use to give blood a lot so had many a person doing that job.
My doctor has never given me a shot, it has always been his nurse that did it. I noticed that the woman that gave me my second shot was a RN trainee. I’m not sure about the for the first shot, didn’t really look. I have never had anyone that did a bad job at giving me a shot. They range from not even feeling it to a tiny prick.
I’m sure in reality the doctors would be fine in giving the shot. It is more like what doctor has the time to do this? It isn’t like my doctor is sitting around doing nothing. If a doctor is doing it, you can pretty much guarantee they are doing it on their off time as a community service.
No doctor would be standing out there giving shots! I’m not even sure you will get a full RN doing most of it.
I think it is pretty common that most wives consider complements given by their husbands (and friends) to be “expected/obligated/less than” complements given by a stranger.
And there is quite a bit of truth to that sometimes. As in woman’s friends tend “lie”, not to hurt the woman’s feelings or “see inner beauty”, or maybe even sometimes make them selves feel better (your not fat! After all your the same size as I am)
And since we have no idea if Frank complements her all the time, and not just when being prompted like this. Which of course is a “much weaker” complement that he just tells her on his own.
Probably better than “May you live in Interesting Times”.
I certainly was referring to Tara’s reaction, like @JPuzzleWhiz said.
