Just a little rant here... I was done volunteering at Loyola today and was heading home. While I was waiting for the elevators a doc (cardio thorasic surgeon) walked up and was waiting for the same elevator. To make conversation, I jokingly said, "the elevators are slow today." This guy just gives me a dirty look and says "They always are....." He completely gave off the "I'm too good to talk to you" vibe. I realize there's always the chance he had a bad day or lost a patient, but why is it such a trend that many doctors seem to be such a-holes? There are tons of very personable doctors, yet there seem to be a large majority at the other end. Can anyone shed some light on this phenomenon?
