Eddie and his wife recently discovered a tick in their 8-year-old son’s head. They got it off and then promptly took him to the doctor. While in the doctor’s office, the doctor was discussing everything with Eddie and his wife. Then Eddie said the doctor turned toward their son and told him “everything was going to be ok, it’s no big deal.” But then the doctor added, “There’s a chance you could have gotten a deadly disease.” So Eddie and his wife had to spend the next several minutes calming their son down because he thought he might die.
They didn’t understand why the doctor would say that to their 8-year-old son so that’s why Eddie decided to use it as his “what’s wrong with people?” story.
