Psycho Discussion

It was a reception marking the end of the academic year for graduating psychiatry residents.A man whose wife was one of the graduates was left on his own for a short time. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was surrounded by what he called a sophisticated group of well-known professors, residents, spouses and other members of the psychiatric community. He was amused and impressed at the exchange he overheard between two of the professors:
Prof #1: “I want to apologize to you.”
Prof #2: “Oh really? For what?”

Prof #1: “Well, over the past six months or so, I fell that I’ve been rather short with you. I haven’t been supportive of your work and I don’t think that I’ve treated you with the respect that you deserve. But I just wanted you to know that this has nothing to do with you. I’ve been having some personal problems and I never meant to bring these problems to work.”
Prof #2: “Oh no, no, no. Don’t be silly. It’s an honor to be the object of your transference.”
