When someone asks you a vague question with just one possible answer in mind…
Dr: So how do you check a child’s development?
Me: Um you can check if they’re meeting the milestones for their age.
Dr: *silence* *staring*
Me: Well there’s gross motor, and fine motor, and social and communication..
Dr: *eyebrows raised*
Me: And you can ask the parents if they have any worries…?
Dr: Mhmm you just have to say “use the Denver scale”. Bosses will think you’re really smart if you do.
Me: ….. -__- I see.
Why do people do this? Eugh. Just why.
