DETROIT, MI – In a huge social faux pas, a local OB/GYN and her patient just became Facebook friends. And they’ve both seen things that can never be unseen.
Heidi Hoarse thought she was extending a request to her daughter’s friend’s mom. Dr. Lindsay Over-Schaer thought she was accepting a friend request from a high school friend. But they quickly realized they were both mistaken.
Dr. Over, who goes by her maiden name at work, was shocked to read her new friend’s shared articles slamming hospital births, and touting the merits of placenta pills. A flood of memories suddenly came back to her, “OMG, this is the mom that threatened to fire me 3 years ago when I tried to poison her baby with a vitamin K shot!” She most recently saw Heidi when she sought treatment for an UTI, but refused antibiotics.
Heidi, on the other hand, felt equally violated after seeing pictures of her trusted doc taking jello shots off a muscular young man, during what looks like a recent girls’ night out. She tried with all her might, but she just couldn’t resist clicking on the accompanying karaoke video of “Like A Virgin.” And then showing the clip to everyone at her next La Leche meeting.
Heidi and Lindsay did discover a mutual love of Real Housewives and Alanis Morissette. But it wasn’t enough to sustain their Facebook friendship. Heidi looked for a new doctor after Dr. Over complained about going to work hungover. And Dr. Over finally unfriended Heidi after she posted “Top Ten Most Dangerous Chemicals in Infant Formula.”
Isn’t it ironic?
