Most days I can't win

I got a call today from a new client. Said client wanted me to come out and sedate his donkey while the ferrier trimmed his hooves. The conversation went something like this:

Me: How big is the donkey and is he gelded?
Client: Well, he's as big as a freakin' house! And no, he's not gelded, I wanted him to protect my goats! I would never take away his manhood!#$%^&
Me: Well, if he's not gelded he's a lot harder to handle...
Client: I never handle him, so that's not a problem.
Me: But you expect me to stick him with a needle?
Client: Well, you can try! *laughs*
Me: What's the ferrier going to do?
Client: Dodge, really fast! *laughs harder*
Me: *fumes*

What, a DVM is a degree in how to dodge flying hooves, stick needles in speeding objects, tackle my patients, get bitten, walk around in a haze of fur, oh, by the way, the x-ray processor is out can you fix it?

I should have been a plumber. They make more than I do.

You didn't know!? DVM stands for "dodge virile mules." Or perhaps "dodge violent mules."

Sounds like the owner needs a shot and fixing;)

I'm not sure if you'll see this on time, but my friend's dog is vomiting and having diarrhea. She says he looks really bad and she's concerned about him. The soonest even an emergency vet is open is tomorrow morning. Is there anything she can do to help get him through til then?

Dumbass cannot be cured, only you can laugh atit. I've had many an encounter with testoterone poisoned donkeys and an owner with terminal dumbass. Thanks for standing up on my blog the other day, I enjoyed your comments
