You know you've been in OT School too long when…

Scene:
OTS Karen (me) at OTS Kerri and her husband, Brent's, home. Playing with their new cat.

Action: Cat hits head against metal chair while playing

Brent : Poor kitty.

OTS Karen: Yikes, he might have a TBI. What do you think his GCS is?

OTS Kerri: Hmm, I'd say a 15.

OTS Karen: Oh good. I'd have been really upset if it was an 8.

Brent: Please stop.

Abbreviations explained for non-OTers:

TBI – traumatic brain injury
GCS – Glasgow Coma Score, anything lower than 8 has a lower survival rate
