OK. So I sold this one baseball card on ebay, and I e-mailed the winning bidder to send me his mailing address, and he does. He asks me to send it to O.B. Laden, MD (This isn't his real name). And I'm thinking, "Why the hell did you put MD behind your name? I don't care! I just sold you my Barry Bonds rookie, not some medical equipment or prescription drugs!" I really don't understand, why must MD follow their name in everything they write? So, if some guy at Burger King asked for your name so they could call you when your order is ready, do you say Joe, MD? Sure, I understand that you went through years and years of hell. Good for you! You don't have to let me know. As Matt Foley put it, "that and a nickel will get me a cup of JACK SQUAT!" This is one thing I intend on never doing when I get those two letters. When I leave the hospital, the MD title will stay, unless some guy on the street suffers a heart attack and needs help. I will not be Brad Pitt, MD 24/7. When I'm not working, I'll just be good ol' average normal Brad Pitt (Sigh). I guess you could consider this a form of medical elitism, since the majority of doctors will do this. Oh well, I can't do anything about that. As long as I don't do that. That's what's important to me.
