They continue to ask me if I have had contact with someone who has Ebola and also to verbally tell them my birthdate and name to prove I am not senile.
The stupidity of things.
When I go to the clinic they always ask if I know my name and birth date. I have to tell them this because they want to make sure I am who I am but back in the day, the white clinic card gave them all this along with a photo id, aka driver's license.
So, the same thing happens when I go to CVS pharmacy. I ask them if my prescription medicines are ready and they insist I indicate verbally my name and address and birth date. I always add, And I almost forgot, I am from planet Earth!
When they ask me at the clinic, every single time I sign in, if I have been out of the country and/or exposed to Ebola, I reply, "I don't make a habit of this because I might die from that."
Sometimes I say, "I am not a vampire. I don't drink the blood from the juggler veins of suspected Ebola patients and in fact that would be bad for my reputation if I was a vampire." LOL
