Doctor uses ‘Corporate Hospital Lingo’ with wife, strategy backfires.


Mumbai: In an incident which has sent shock waves in the medical community, a doctor immediately regretted his decision to use ‘corporate hospital lingo’ with his wife, when she asked him to take her out for shopping.

It is a well-known fact that in most corporate hospitals, for any demand by doctors to the management for any new equipment or a new process, justification has to be given if the demand is ‘desirable or essential’. Also, an explanation has to be given for any faults in the current equipment or ongoing process. On most occasions, the management comes out on top and is then able to smartly push the requirement for the next financial year, and the vicious cycle continues.

In an exclusive interview with the Quackdoses, Dr. Pati Parmeshwar said, “For the past few months, every time the salary got credited in my account, my wife would ‘unrealistically’ demand that I take her out on a shopping spree or a movie, hand over my credit card to her, buy her a new I-phone, etc. Initially I could pacify her with my boss’s standard strategy on me by telling her that there were budgetary constraints, or we could plan expenses in the next quarter, etc. Things really got out of hand the day I innocently asked her to justify if her demands were ‘desirable or essential’, and explain if there was anything wrong with the clothes in her wardrobe or her current phone.”

Unconfirmed sources have claimed that Dr. Parmeshwar has been sleeping on the floor of his bedroom and ordering his food online for the past 3 days.
