I went to the doctor yesterday about some problems I’ve been having with my shoulder. After a fairly quick examination, the doctor thinks that I have tendinitis in my shoulder and prescribed some pills and some physical therapy. I should be back to normal soon.
However, when I got my prescription filled and looked at the box of pills, I was wondering if the doctor was trying to say something about me. After all, he prescribed me Retardtabletten . I honestly burst out laughing when I saw that.
In all seriousness, Retardtabletten just means that they are SLOW dissolving tablets.
[Ok, I know this is politically incorrect to joke about and I’m in no way implying anyone other than myself is retard in this situation.]
