Last week, I was a patient at my dentist's office, and had to wait a long time before getting my tooth repair handled.
When the staff finally got around to taking care of me, they said, "Thanks for your patience."
I said, "I'm your patient; that's what I do…show patience." I was a patient patient.
But I almost lost my "patience" when my dentist/doctor (DDS) used some amazingly bad grammar…from the mouth of a highly educated professional who should know better.
I expect my doctors and dentists to be very good at what they do. But I also expect them to have acquired proper, basic English skills along the line. After all, they paid big bucks for their education.
