Real life Scrubs

I'm sitting in Caribou, with two young female doctors at the next table. Picture two of these (though less made up). They have talked about:
whether its worth buying new jeans since they will only get to wear them 4 days a month, whether they should wear their white coats ("They weigh, like, 20 pounds. How do you wear your stethoscope?"), and different attending Docs ("He was really good. He asked me lots of questions, and I was, like, always wrong, but that's ok.").

One has a copy of pocket medicine. And she admits she can't follow a recipe to bake oatmeal raisin cookies and left her keys at the counter (someone found them).

I'm afraid they don't instill much confidence, but perhaps it's different when they're dressed up in their nice white coats.

NEVER EVER Trust someone in the medical profession that wears scrubs outside of the hospital.
Scrubs are designed for in the hospital, their purpose is to contain disease. You wear scrubs so that they can get dirty/infested and leave them at the clinic. You don't carry them out into the public.
