Tales from the Office: I forgot my son

Okay, so we all know that patients run late especially the last couple of the day. They also have the best excuses. The best one so far is the appointment we had scheduled yesterday afternoon. The patient was a young teenage boy and his mother was bringing him to his appointment. The mom called in a panic–

“We are going to be late, I got halfway to the appointment and realized that my son was not in the car. I dropped him off so he could relieve himself by a tree and I accidentally left him there”.

I thought I had heard them all, but this one takes the cake.
