I’m really, really busy these days. Cold and flu season, you know? Not a lot of time to dilly-dally.
Please put away your goddamn cell phone while I am speaking to you about your child’s illness! Whoever it is you are texting can wait! Beyond being impossibly rude, it also adds to the length of time I spend with you, which is time I could be spending with the umpteen other people waiting to be seen today!
