another thisn't example

A patient comes in talking about how the doctor said he must be pretty tough considering how much pain he must be in because of a problem with his hip. He continued to emphasize this, and how the doctor was surprised he didn't use a cane, etc.

The patient doesn't normally boast or require mirroring work, so I ask him what he would call a person who couldn't deal with pain.

He says a "boo-boo baby" in a childish voice. We use you-statements and he brings up a friend...
