Please sir, may I have some more…. occupational therapy?
Cashier: So, you work next door right? What kind of therapies again do you have?
Me: Speech and occupational therapy.
Cashier: Occupational therapy. Have you all gone into the factories around here?
Me: That's a good idea, but actually, we specialize in pediatrics, so no.
Cashier: Occupational therapy for KIDS? ::looks aghast::
Me: ::thinking OMGIMINSUCHAHURRYOMGTHISISSONOTTHETIMETOHAVETOGIVEADEFINITIONOFOT::
Me: ::smiles patiently:::Actually in this case, we aren't just talking about jobs…we consider anything a child does in daily life, to be an occupation…so feeding, playing, brushing hair…
Cashier: Oh, I get it. I used to be a safety manager….blah blah blah
Me: ::nodding, smiling, edging away:::
Maybe I can educate her more another day. AHAHAHAHA
