medical mysteries.....

My friend T (hey T!) is a switchboard operator for a big medical institution in town and over the years she has shared with me some of the HiLaRiOuS stuff people say when trying to find, pronounce, or otherwise describe their doctors and/or illnesses. T keeps a journal next to the phone in which to jot down these little gems....
  • a lady needed to reschedule her GYN appointment because she was on her administration cycle
  • a person was calling to schedule an appointment with a doctor recommended by her general internal revenue physician
  • someone needed to have their scripture renewed

and the pièce de résistance (pieces?)

  • a lady called to make an appointment for her husband to have his vaginal warts removed
  • a man called to get the results of the autopsy he'd had done the week before

giggle to your heart's content...I do :)

night ya'll!

I love the autopsy one.

The autopsy result request is my favorite as well :)

I always love her stories...I'll have to check in with her periodically to get more of them.

We have a similar trend at here at the library but it's not quite as funny. I recently got a reserve card for Eat, Drink, Prayer...luckily for this individual I happen to know the book she wants (because it's one of my favorites) is Eat, Pray, Love. Another time I got a card for a new Mary Higgins Clark book Pretend You Don't See Her only the patron had put the title, Pretend You Don't Like Me. It's amazing what people will come up with sometimes.
