The Goldilocks Syndrome


“Why did you wait so long before coming in?”

“1 hour of sore throat? Really?

Most patients can’t catch a break with us. We’re never happy when they come in: it’s either waaay too soon, or waaay too late. Never just right. (But I suspect that’s because we, just like all other human beings, are averse to work and like to complain.)

This applies, of course, only to the well patients, of whom we would probably complain whenever they come in. The sick ones are either sick immediately and come in, or get sick later and make their way to us. Perhaps: The Goldilocks/Well Patient Syndrome?
