More Humans Are Weird
Okay, but this: we’ve established that humans have an odd perception of injuries. But what about how many are afraid of doctors?
Alien: Human Alana, that is a lot of blood. Are you okay?
Human, with cut foot: It’s just a cut. Hardly feel anything. *looks closer* Oh, cool. Hey, is that my tendon?
Alien: By my knowledge, if you are able to see the bones or tendons, you need stitches. Should we not get you to the medical bay immediately?
Human *uncomfortable*: Or… what would happen if I just, you know… didn’t? I mean, I’m fine with a bigger scar. Scars are cool.
Alien: But does your species not get infected wounds??
Human: We do… but I really don’t want to get stitches.
Alien: Human Alana, I believe I must insist! It is for your well-being!
Human: *starts to panic*
Alien: *Freaks the fuck out because they don’t know what to do*
