I recently went with a friend to visit the doctors (everything is more fun in a pair, no?)
As I was in the waiting room, I was musing that the nice thing about seeing a doctor is that you can tell them anything and they're legally bound to keep your secrets. That's actually better than having friends!
The only other people in the waiting room were 2 young couples…I spent a while trying to guess where they were from. They were Asian. Not local. A bit poor looking (I feel like that's slightly offensive…but it's not meant to be, just an observation…). The nurse was explaining something to them in another language…not Thai…and I probably wouldn't recognise anything else… :P
Then they left.
The nurse watched them fondly, then looked at me.
Nurse: "Those are my refugees."
Ah-ha! My chance...
Me: "Where are they from?"
Nurse: "Myanmar. They're only here for contraception."
AH?! What? When did I ask that, I didn't ask that?? And I'm quite sure you're not supposed to tell me, even if I did…??
Nurses take the oath too, right...right?
