This is to reply to all of the people who find joy in my embarrassment and shame. Yes, my medical license is currently under suspension, and yes,I could have reapplied 90 days afterwards, however I have chosen to look towards other avenues in life's journey. The reapplication could have happened in March of 2004, but I did not choose to do so at that time. I am still eligible to reapply for my medical license at any time I choose.
Thanks for kicking a man when he's down.
They cannot however, take away my education, nor my medical degree. Hope you or your family never has a problem, so that you will not be so hasty to pass judgement.
Please forgive my grammer and punctuation on my first letter, as I wrote it in the dark, very early in the morning and was pressed for space. Before you criticize someone, you should be certain your grammer is correct.
You have obviously never read a Dr's note as we all tend to write in shorthand, which I tend to do also. I am working on this.
But back to the issue at hand. I would not have filed this complaint in the first place, if I felt that I was in the wrong. I knew that it would be very embarrassing and open me up to all sorts of accusations and revelations.
What I found falling out of my burger is what I truly believe to be a pubic hair. I feel that at some point it must have been in my mouth, as I would have had to have pulled it out of the hamburger to fall.
When I showed the hair to the manager on duty, you could see the look of horror on his face, as he realised what he saw. If he did not think it was what he thought he saw, why did he immedeiately apologize and without my asking, call his regional manager, who also apologized to me, based on what his manager informed him, indeed looked like a pubic hair.
I made a mistake in leaving the hair with the manager and Ms. Franco(the risk manager) informed me without getting any type of professional opinion that it could not be determined where it had come from. If burgerking(dimunitive form of BurgerKing) really cared to find out, why haven't they? What are they afraid of? With something this potentially explosive, I would have made certain to CMA.
I also told Ms. Franco to check her video cameras for any evidence that it may have been planted. She did not do this.
I am willing to undergo any lie-detector test that burgerking wants, in case they do not believe my story, and to settle any doubts that anyone may have.
Yes it was nasty, and yes I am extremely pissed about the way I was treated by uncaring burgerking officials. Will I die from this, probably not. But
I am going to make sure burgerking gets to the bottom of this, gives me a satisfactory explanation and an official apology.
No one in the store had curly hair on their head matching the specimen, and I am willing to undergo any DNA testing needed to prove it was not my hair.
I have nothing to hide! So if you think this is a scam, you are truly mistaken. Demand information from burgerking, I am sure they will be completely forthright with you. I'd be interested to know.
Also, a taper is a cone type of shape, which gradually tapers(hence the name) to a fine point.
This is the same shape that new hairs have, once they have come out of the hair follicle. New hairs are typically not shed from the head, but rather from other areas that have a high turnover. People typically do not have new hair growth, which they shed, from their head.
This is in contrast to a cut hair which typically has a cylindrical shape. This is for the people who did not understand this concept of the difference between tapered and cut. (Cosmotologist?)
