First of all, I am not a doctor’s wife or even a wife for that matter, so I won’t say that I understand what a doctor’s wife feel like when you say weird things to her.
But one thing I am sure about is they really get irritated by few stereotypical things that people keep asking her and telling her. I know a lot of such wives and I have seen them pissed on some of the words they come across regularly.
So, if you know a doctor’s wife too, don’t say these things to her because she is already tired of hearing all this:
1. So do you get free treatment?
This is self-explanatory. She is a doctor’s wife and I am sure as hell that he will not ask her to pay on her way out when she needs treatment. Come on, it’s like your chef husband asking you to pay for the food he is cooking.
2. So you never have to go to a hospital?
How is it possible for one doctor to provide treatment for all health issues? What if she has bone issues and her husband is just an oncologist? Or a phyisician? I mean, a cancer doctor will not treat her bones, right? So, she has to go to other doctors too and seems like you need a psychiatrist too.
3. You must be very rich
Why? Just because her husband is a doctor doesn’t mean they are rich because some doctors make great money and others don’t. Yes, none of them are poor but they are also not the kind who spend every evening at the club or a shopping mall.
4. I have this health issue, tell me what to do
Oh God, she is not the doctor, her husband is. Also, he cannot treat all your issues just by you telling his wife about that. If you are really dealing with a health issue, why don’t you go and get treatment straight away?
5. How do you manage with his schedule?
First of all, it is none of your business to ask her how she manages with her husband’s schedule. Secondly, he is a doctor and not an astronaut who goes on space trips and she can’t contact her. She meets him daily and he works a particular shift because emergencies don’t occur every day.
So guys, next time you meet a doctor’s wife, you need to control your words and omit these things mentioned above. After all, you wouldn’t want to mess with a doctor’s wife, huh?
