She said, “He told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know, he’s only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come!”
I think it’s incredibly unprofessional of you to say something like that. To say such a thing once was bad enough, but twice is outrageous!”
“I’m very sorry,” replied the doctor, “please forgive me. But just to set the record straight, I only said it ONCE Once once …”
