Importance of Understanding a person.....

The Scene: A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery.

 

He answered the call as fast as he could, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy's father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: 'Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you have a sense of responsibility? The doctor smiled and said 'I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call and now I wish you would calm down so that I can do my work'

 

'Calm down! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now, what will you do? said the father angrily. The doctor smiled again and replied doctors cannot prolong lives, go and intercede for your son and we will do our best by God's grace. 'Giving advises when we are not concerned is so easy, murmured the father'.

 

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, thank goodness your son is saved and without waiting for the father's reply, he carried on his way running, 'if you have any question, ask the nurse'. The man (father) was so relieved and happy to hear about the good news of this son’s health, but he was still not able to hold on to his anger because of Dr.’s hasty behavior. Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait some minutes so I can ask about my son's stability, commented the father after the doctor left.

 

The nurse answered with tears running down her face, his son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son's surgery and now that he saved your son's life he left running to finish his son's burial'.

 

 

No need of lectures here, I’m sure everybody understood the moral of this post. J
