Diply | Diply

We've all had that one friend who thinks they deserve special treatment, right? 😏 Well, this ophthalmologist had a similar experience when their friend's significant other (SO) demanded an eye exam without an appointment. The doctor, who runs a private clinic, has a packed schedule and doesn't take walk-ins to reduce waiting time for patients. But when the SO insisted on just dropping by whenever she had the time, things took a turn for the worse. 😬

Doctor Stands Ground, Friend Fumes 😠

The doctor tried to be reasonable, explaining that their busy schedule doesn't allow for walk-ins and that it wouldn't be fair to other patients. But when the SO tried to drop by without an appointment, she was turned away, causing her and her partner to unleash their fury. The doctor, however, stands by their decision, maintaining that special treatment wouldn't be fair to others. 💁‍♂️ Let's dive into the internet's thoughts on this eye-opening situation! 👁️
