"Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died." —Erma Bombeck

This quote made me laugh when I ran across it, especially since I've encountered the doctors with the dead plants and with aquariums with dead fish.  It doesn't bode well when you see these things in the waiting room, or even worse, his office.  I'm not sure I've ever been inside a doctor's actual office (maybe once when I was little?) but I'd definitely be concerned if I found the dead fish in there.

The doctor with an aquarium with dead fish and that was so dirty you could only see through it in spots, was a quackiest in a group of quack doctors.  He was my sister's doctor, and he took her off all of her medication, only to put her on over 30 fish oil pills a day.  I'm not sure that he didn't fake his medical degree.  I've wondered that about a lot of doctors, but I think he's the worst I've ever seen.

So, my advice is, if you see dead fish floating in a very dirty aquarium in the doctor's waiting room...RUN!
