The skeeze factor of walk-in medicine  
At the doc-in-the-box for my workman's comp injury and I look over and see this sign:

If you are planning travel out of the country for the Lunar New Year, Please read the following:

That's it. The rest of the sign was blank.

What is this Lunar New Year that requires people to travel out of the country after not reading anything? I've never felt so out of a loop that appeared to have nothing in it in the first place.

That's when I was distracted by this sign:

If you have been to any of the countries, listed below, and have a fever with a cough, sore throat, or trouble breathing, PLEASE ask for a mask and let the receptionist know. THANK YOU.

(Cue juicy sneeze from guy next to me.)

Below it was a list of over a dozen countries I never thought of visiting before but now have them mentally filed under "dirty."
