A Clown By Any Other Name

A friend of mine was recently at a doctor’s visit and tried joking around with the medical staff. I’m not sure if my friend wasn’t really that funny – or if the healthcare providers didn’t get the humor – but either way – it didn’t go over to well.


How do you respond when a patient acts goofy? Does it worry you – or do you go along with the joke? Ignore it?
