I had a patient this morning and he had to be in his mid 30s and everyone who knows me sees that I look a lot younger than I am. To make conversation I told him about Jeni's which he never heard of before and how I spent $20 on ice cream. I thought it was a harmless conversation. Right? At the end of the appointment as I was giving him his cashier slip, he asked me if I would like to get ice cream sometime? I didn't know what to say so I pulled out my fake boyfriend and used him as an excuse. I felt bad, my mentor told me that what she does when patients used to ask her out is use flattery. She would tell them how flattered she was for the offer but OSU's policy is that we can't date patients. At one point a patient offered to stop coming to OSU's dental school for treatment to have a date with her? I'm sorry I think I like my way better, sometimes people just can't take a hint so now I have to try and not tie this incidence to my favorite place in the world...... Jeni's!!
