I’ve been cursed

The other night I saw a patient with, to be blunt, the most blatant drug-seeking behavior I’ve ever seen.  That’s neither here nor there (no prescriptions would be forthcoming), but it’s the prelude to The Curse:

"I wish you Earthquake Damage!" said this patient, and it surprised me.  Frankly, sailor-talk is the usual, and I’ve never had a natural disaster wished on me by anyone.

So, if there’s an earthquake in North Texas, it’s my fault.  No pun intended.

  1. Did his threat leave you ‘Shaking’ in your boots? hahaha, terrible joke I know.
    What sort of behaviors were exhibited?

  2. Ha! I once had a hex put on me by an angry mom – her child had to stay in from recess to finish her math homework.
