    Could be worse. He could have asked her if her husband's name was Ben.
  • The name Aunt Jemima has a long history in American culture. Its roots are firmly in the minstrel show period - when white performers wore blackface - and is a remnant of plantation and slave culture. The name, character, and history all have racial undertones, to say the very least

    Oh fark me. That's the best pancake mix.

    As Jemima, Green operated a pancake-cooking display at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1893, appearing beside the "world's largest flour barrel". From this point on, marketing materials for the line of products centered around the stereotypical mammy archetype, including the Aunt Jemima marketing slogan first used at the World Fair: "I's in Town, Honey"

    Oh god farking dammit
  • How a modern-era doctor could believe calling a patient this name would be a so-called "blunder" isn't clear

    I work with doctors. Just because they might know some stuff about medicine doesn't mean they can't be otherwise morons.
  •  Well, we have a president who calls random Hispanic women "housekeeper," so I'm not sure what we should be that surprised.

    When I was in my late 20s the ex and I were trying to get her pregnant and went to a fertility specialist; my job was to provide a semen sample.

    So I did and the fertility guy called and said my sperm count was pretty close to zero; they wanted me to go see a urologist.

    The ex came with me because we both had appointments that day. I'd gone in a single day from not really thinking about my health, the way most 20-somethings do, to suddenly wondering why I was possibly sterile and if I had prostate cancer and so on. A very nervous day.

    The ex and I are sitting in the exam room when the urologist comes bustling in. Without looking at me he's riffling through some stuff on a clipboard and says "So I hear you're shooting blanks! Hyuk hyuk hyuk!"

    Before I could even quite grasp what he'd said he snapped on a glove, told me to drop trou, and did a prostate exam without really even asking or explaining what he was doing (I was young enough that I was only vaguely aware there WAS such as exam).

    He said, "Prostate's okay! Sit tight!" stripped off the glove and left. A few minutes later a nurse came in with some stuff to sign for another referral for some blood work.

    I wasn't offended; it was more that what he said was so rude and inappropriate it hardly registered until later--basically he came crashing in, made a horrible joke, stuck his finger up my ass and left without me actually exchanging a single word with him.

    Or Tom, come to think of it.

    Wow--only took five responses to blame Trump. Impressive.

    Oh, that was just Mr. Hurkel who wandered down from the Pysch ward who likes to pretend to be a doctor. The real doctor will be along in a moment.

    I suppose the "shooting blanks" joke wasn't all that awful, but I'd never seen the guy before. The main issue I had was him doing a prostate check without asking if I wanted my ex to leave or even explaining what was about to happen or anything.

    If I was a being checked for fertility at a farm and PETA saw it they'd be protesting at his office.

    i also pictured him looking like this for some reason

    I dated/lived with a nurse for a while. One day she's reading a book and she looks up and says "I didn't know we fought the Germans and the Japanese in the same war?"

    Demon in the sack, though. So there was that.

    Perhaps he was trying to keep you from thinking too much about it and getting nervous. He may have had patients back out of the procedure entirely, a la the prostate cancer ads: "don't be emberassed to death."

    Many in private practice are in a bubble, and they are in charge of  that bubble. Sometimes they don't understand how the world works outside of the bubble. I went to a dentist where the only other employees were his relatives. I found another dentist real quick. So awkward.
  • Biscuit Tin: Was he drunk, I wonder, or otherwise incapacitated? Who does that?


    Someone who probably calls his receptionist "honey" and the guy who picks up the trash "boy" even though he's 75. And wonders on weekends howcome there's so many colored folks down to the store.
  • Aunt Jemima?

    She ain't ja mama.
  • Could have been worse.
    Could have called her that while examining her flapjacks.
  • Classic apology from the doctor.  "Sorry for the misunderstanding".  What misunderstanding.  I heard you.  You called me Aunt Jemima.  Twice.

    Are you sure he was the doctor?
