И вот сидим мы на этой конференции. И один из классов - Interpreting Trauma. Рассказывают о PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Крутят Power Point Presentation. Один из слайдов: "Jose used to play guitar all the time. He has not touched his guitar for six months now. What do you think happened?"
What do I think happened? I think that Jose was Танцор Диско, and the guitar killed his mother, and that is why he does not want to touch it anymore.
Next:"When Maria comes to the clinic for her appointment, if she is scheduled to see Dr. Brown, she will leave the clinic. She has been doing this for six years. What is possbile going on?"
What is going on? First, Maria is nuts. Why does she keep scheduling appoitnment with Dr. Brown if she knows she does not want to see him? Second, what kind of clinic allows patients to skip the appointments all the time and bring them back any way? Third, can't she figure out in advance which doctor she is scheduled to see so she does not have to come all the way to the clinic to just leave immediately? This is not PTSD - it's EPS (Ever Present Stupidity)
Следующий слайд: "For the last six months, Sara goes to Starbucks and every time she hears the steam coming out of the espresso machine, she jumps. What could possible be going on?"
Why the f&*k Sara continues going to Starbucks? Can't she get her damn coffee at home? Or, in alternative, can't she switch to tea if she is so traumatized? You know what I think? I think Sara is a mazochist. Or she likes jumping. Or whoever prepared this presentation, chose the stupidest examples ever.
С подсказки трудящихся ниже в комментах - ВАШ ВАРИАНТ, ТОВАРИЩИ. Отчего Хосе на гитаре не играется?
P.S. Участникам конференции, кстати, так и не открыли тайну происходящего с Хосе, Марией и Сарой. Может, потому что она бесплатная была? Ответы за дополнительную плату?
