As a med student I worked very busy Sat. nights in the hospital ER in Louisville, Ky. I was an out of state student.
A patient, middle age black woman, told me, “ Haint seen nuthin fur a munt now.”
I told her that I would arrange for an Eye Clinic appointment for her. This was overheard by one of the ER doctors who called me aside and explained that what the woman meant was that she had not had her menstrual period in the past month.
