    We polled our readers for their most outrageous stories... and the responses did not disappoint.



    Don't let it bug you

    I worked in a practice where the corporate office would only pay to have the biohazard container emptied every three months. Every time the assistant opened it to put something in, it smelled like rotting flesh! No air freshener could take the smell away. 

    Worst of all, toward the end of the three months, gnats started swarming around the container and would fly all around the office. One time I was trying to work on a patient and a gnat was flying over my patient's mouth. The assistant took the large suction and sucked it up! I wanted to die!
