Sometimes, sex-ed just isn't enough.
Case in point? A Florida teenager who posed as "Dr. Robinson" at St. Mary's Medical Center. For an entire month, Robinson donned a St. Mary's coat and floated around the hospital. While he conducted no actual appointments (it seems like he mostly just walked around the hospital and introduced himself to various people), he did sit in on an examination with a patient and a *COUGH* real doctor.
It was this doctor—Dr. Kent—who finally reported Robinson. Initially, Dr. Kent chalked up Robinson's baby face to his own senility:
“The first thing I thought was, ‘I am getting, I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year,' ” he told Fox13.
Perhaps it was the boy's lack of facial hair or ever-cracking voice, but something finally felt off to Dr. Kent, and he called security. Because Robinson had been there for, ya know, an entire month, security recognized Robinson and were reluctant to involce the authorities . . . but ultimately called the police on the pint-size imposter.
Robinson's parents were—naturally—horrified and revealed that Robinson had "an illness" and was not taking his medication. The hospital did not press charges. Furthermore, they assured the public that Robinson had not actually had contact with patients.
Let this be a lesson to you. Next time you're trying to
impersonate a ladybits doctor, face a challenge, just remember this: with enough confidence, everyone will believe virtually anything you say.
