    One of the doctors in my office emailed me today about a patient:

    today, when asked what medications he's allergic to , said "all generic medications".....
    "oh , I see" was my only reply......

    My emailed response:

    My favorite was the patient who said she was "allergic to cheap jewelry." I knew she meant a nickel allergy, but my response was "aren't we all?"
