“Mr. Blake? This is Dr. Wiseman’s office. Where are you at the moment?”

“There’s bad news and good news. Bad news is… our lab results show some irregularities. “
“What’s the good news?”

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “call” in exactly 41 words.

    🙂 Attitude from both sides! I hope the good news is that it’s nothing to worry about!

    A little courtesy on both sides would be helpful! Wonder how the conversation ended.

      If he can dish it out, he ought to be able to take it. If not, perhaps he’ll be mindful of being courteous. (I’m secretly wondering if those two know each other in casual lives? That might explain the friction.)

    Sarcasm breeds sarcasm.
    Not cool to leave us hanging, Susan! 😉

      Thanks for stopping by. Mr. Blake will be okay. Turns out all he really needed was an “attitude adjustment”. 😀
