"I'm prescribing you a chill pill, boss." (via ThinkStock)

It seems like doctors in Canada are as exhausted as their U.S. counterparts when it comes to dealing with the endless paperwork involved with practicing medicine. Between the insurance companies and the government, it takes a PhD in red tape to keep up with it. Making matters worse, some Canadian companies now require employees to obtain a note from a doctor when they take time off for medical reasons.

One doctor from Nova Scotia is so sick of the practice, he wrote a form letter for patients to give their bosses. It's too long to transcribe, but the gist of it amounts to, "Stop wasting my valuable time by involving me in your irresponsible policies that are literally making people sicker."
