Things you never want to hear from the radiology tech doing your mammogram

1. Hmmmm. I think we're going to need to go get the bigger tray. I'm a little concerned you will fall over the sides.

2. Well, this certainly would have been more difficult before you had children!

3. I don't think this will be too uncomfortable for you because your tissue is fairly stretchy.

4. Are you actually nursing now?

And the sad part about all this funny is that it's not exactly the kind of stuff you can share in the break room at the office, you know? So, you guys are the lucky recipients. And I am going to go sit with my sore girls and watch a little Heroes. And before anyone worries, this was just a routine, baseline exam. There's nothing wrong.

Ha! And, ouch. Also, kudos for being such a responsible person, you who happens to be almost one full year younger than me. The scrip for the radiology lab that my OB wrote for me, oh, about a year and a half ago is still at the bottom of my purse. I think. Either that, or it was thrown away ages ago.

Ha! And ouch, part two!

Yikes, thats some trayside manner that tech had!

Hmm, I think you have just turned me off to ever going.

That was actually said to you? Wow really makes someone want to go and have it done.

Good for you for going and having it done! I hope the girls are feeling better now.

Stretchy, huh? This man was clearly not married or his wife would've trained him out of this sometime ago. Good for you, though! Now how's your cholesterol, chica? (Just kidding.)

I will add to the choir, and say "Good job" for having your check up!

Boobs do weird things to people I think, especially techs and docs who might feel a little strange actually touching them.
