Doctor's Visit

Bad news: I have bronchitis. Good news: My doctor prescribed antibiotics. Better news: While in the waiting room, I overheard something humorous:
A woman was waiting for her appointment with the doctor, with her young son, a lad of not more than five seated next to her. The boy was preoccupied with the though that the doctor would give his mom an injection. The mother, on the other hand, was frantically filling out the necessary forms before being seen.

"Mom, are you gonna git a needle," asked the child. He seemed so afraid.
"I don't know. But I'm busy right now. Leave me alone."
"But mom, will it hurt?" he asked.
The woman ignored her son's question and continued answering the questions on the form.
"Mom, is it gonna be in your arm, or in your leg?"
"I don't know if I'm I'm gonna get a needle, or where it will be."
"But mom," the child continued. "Is it gonna hurt?"
"If you don't leave me alone, I'm going to tell the doctor to give you a shot!!"
The child climbed into the seat next to his mother and never spoke another word...
