Professor: The suggested reading for this lecture is a seminal paper in the field published by a first year medical student. At the young age of 24, he had the gift and insight –
Jenny: *whispering loudly to me* A 1st year?! I hate him already. That med student should burn in hell.
Professor: – to write about his subacute bacterial endocarditis right up until two days before his untimely death.
Everyone: *turns around in their seats to stare at Jenny*

Jenny, putting your foot in your mouth is a key part of med school, residency, and attendinghood. Good to see you’re starting early.
Hahaha, oh, poor Jenny. Shamed for saying what half the class was probably thinking to themselves anyway. Oops.
The difference between Jenny and half the class is they had the good sense to keep their mouths shut. Filters are important.
Did he die of SBE?
Reading comprehension fail.
Wow, that’s… well, knowing my luck I’d probably be Jenny in this story.
Always putting my foot in my mouth. Always.
