Brandied About: Strep Throat

Strep Throat: The Kleenex of bacterial infections.

You know how people say, “Can you hand me a Kleenex?”  What they really want is a tissue.  No one says, “Can I have a Puffs?” 

Strep throat is sort of like that.  I bet twice a week during Cold Season, someone you know says, “Oh, so and so has Strep.”  Or, “I can’t come to work today, I have Strep.” Or, “Man my throat is killing me.  I think I have Strep.” I’ve had people call in and tell me they have Strep and then when I ask them if they went to the doctor, some of them have said no.  Newsflash:  you have to have a test to determine if you have Strep.  I have sore throats like six times a year, yet in almost every instance, it’s a sore throat due to drainage.
It’s just another term that is brandied about incorrectly.  Stay tuned for more articles where we bitch about people saying ‘same difference’, ‘irregardless’, and ‘mute point’.
So in summation, people are dumb, and everything irritates the piss out of me when I have a sore throat.  It’s probably Strep.
