We've both had our fair amount of dealings with plenty to know.
As one person i know, who having dealt with several "stupid" doctors", pointed out. Common sense doesn't mean that it's good sense, otherwise it wouldn't be common.
And the old favorite "What do you call a doctor that graduated at the top of the class? Doctor. What do you called the doctor who graduated last of their class? Doctor"
I see a lot of lack of good sense all around me. Very simple things that people should know better. A woman ran over her kid the other night at the store I work at (luckily I was not working that night), she should have known better than to back out when her child was not strapped in and the doors weren't locked.
In this case it's an easy excuse for one to push their beliefs onto others. You'll never hear of a doctor who is a cat lover suggest that one should give away their cats. But for those who do not like cats or even animals, it's the first thing out of their mouths. Simply because of society's herd like behavior, most people don't question and just follow along because they think their doctor knows everything and is somehow beyond mistakes and prejudices.
