That's actually what it's called in English, but that's not really the main language spoken in these circles.  :)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Funny, sad, and true all at once. Although I would venture to say, this scenario is a bit less of an example of that.

People who think ignorance is a virtue.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Ask all Healthcare professionals and you will be told that Q-tips shouldn't be used to clean ear wax (to be fair, they will probably tell you that one shouldn't use the arm of your glasses).
Just taking a poll here on ddf, im sure most use Q-tips for there ears, even being posted on the ms, seems that it's a basic item of day to day living, it poses a danger issue if used in the wrong way, all you have to do is accidently dig a bit to deep and cause some damage c"v, but if your carefull I don't see what should be wrong. (for those who stopped using Q-tips do they at least go to a health care professional to suction out all the wax buildup?
and then use in it to stir their coffee...
How else do you remove the ear wax from the temple(arm)?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Amazon orders that come in 1 package, and need to be returned in 2 packages.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Dr's offices that cancel your appointment if you're 5 minutes late but keep you waiting an hour or more before calling your name. WTH ?

People that act like sheep when it comes to Dr offices.

Our family Dr's office is very close to both my home and my office. I've recently got tough with them and told them to call me when they have a room ready. I tell them that if I have to wait in the waiting/reception area more than 3 minutes I won't pay for the visit. You'll be surprised how they comply!

I've seen them tell someone that they lost the appointment. As I'm waiting & waiting to be called. And it takes only about 4 months to get an appointment with that dr.
