RE: OT-Reverse sexism< Ms. Mrs.

Hey, cool! A gardening doctor! Can I ask you a question about tetanus? I
haven't had one in about 10 years and recently remember hearing that
tetanus is a soil borne pathogen...since I do so much gardening and ergo
work with a lot of sharp gardening tools which I am forever nicking
myself on, as well as the rose thorns I encounter...should I put on a
brave face and go get one? Remember, I'm a nurse...not always the first
group of people to take great care of ourselves! Thanks!

Amazingly, I still have an occassional parent be very surprised when I
introduce myself at work (Dr. Witt)- usually it is a man who is surprised.
One or two have even said outloud that they expected a man- one asked for a
&quot;man doctor&quot;.  This is are more annoying than those people who are surprised
I am a Dr. because I look so young.  That I can live with : ) - and will
likely enjoy more and more as years go by.


P.S. For the record- our clinic nurse is a man.
