"Lunar Lunatics" And Other Superstitions in Healthcare



A superstition is a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.

Pandemic Bender

Last night I was at dinner with a friend and as we were chatting, we were acutely aware of two females at the table next to us. At some point it was noticeable to everyone in our vicinity the ladies were not happy. Both were signaling the waitstaff, complaining about things, and just being difficult. I honestly expected them to start snapping their fingers at the waitress for attention.  We had the same waitress and it was obvious she was new, so allowing some grace would have been the kind thing to do.  It wasn’t long before Karen Squared asked to speak to a manager to complain, excessively!
