Seriously? And I Thought Legalese Was Bad

I received a report from the doctor today regarding a rash on my skin. The verdict? I have a skin rash due to inflammation.

They clearly have no idea how much attention writers give to words, because I found this statement hilarious.

Now, maybe in medical terms skin rash and inflammation are two different things. But to me, they seem the same. A rash is made up of points or patches of inflamed skin. At least to this lay person, it is.

So the report made me roll my eyes. It was like saying you’re wet because there’s water on your skin.

Well, d’oh.
