I guess this was a first for me – being called this. Not sure that I know quite how to handle that, except that I know who I am and I am not that!
I guess the stress of being a parent and having a child who did not take to the sedation well, was the reason. Not very excusable. And the main reason parents are not allowed in the operating room while a procedure is going on. At the point I was called this, I was struggling to keep the child still so that we could at least get a temporary filling in the partially treated tooth. I did not need to take my attention away from the child to deal with the dad.
Made for a crummy morning all around though.
