Tongue Tied

Being the youngest and newest Admissions Clerk at a Catholic Hospital, I was determined to prove my worthiness as both an efficient and compassionate co-worker.

Regrettably, one such opportunity proved to leave my peers in an alarmed state of disbelief, not to mention myself!

I was admitting an exceptionally polite yet timid teenage boy, named Zach. His particularly well mannered father accompanied him and never spoke a word, allowing his son to conduct the details of his own admission.

As I opened the admission pack to begin the registration process, Zach, enthusiastically pulled a wristband from his shirt pocket. “Here, I saved this from my last admission, so you didn’t have to make me a new one.” Holding the wristband in his outstretched hand, he leaned forward, “And I’ve kept it in a box at home so it wouldn’t get dirty.”

Realizing Zack’s eagerness to lend his support of goodwill, I offered my grateful response of appreciation. “Thank you so much, Zack. That was so thoughtful of you, but unfortunately I can’t use it because the date and room number are different now.”

He immediately recoiled, slumped back into his chair, and hung his blushing face toward the floor. “Oh, sorry, I didn’t think about it, but yeah that makes sense and was pretty dumb of me.”

My heart sank at his obvious dejection, so I fervently went into overdrive, attempting to make him feel as though he had in fact, done me a favor.

I stood up and reached for his old wristband, now crumpled inside both of his closed hands. “Actually, it will help me find your old chart.” However, I got tongue-tied, replaced the ch in chart with the f in file, and blurted out my twisted verbiage.

Once the immobilization from feeling horror-struck passed, I managed to apologize, but wasn’t able to pull it off without an irrepressible giggle.

It was obvious that I found the incident somewhat amusing and was smiling, until I looked around at my co-workers, the patient and his father, and realized that I was the only one smiling!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is still great. I've done the same thing as a nurse I was giving a new mother a shot to help her bleeding subside. i blurted out to this new mother who just had her 6th child, "This medicine will stop you breeding." The father said, "Cool they can do that with a shot?" And the doctor just shrieked one word, my name "SHANN!!!" So I so empathize with you my dear!

Too funny! That is EXACTLY the kind of thing I do all the time. In fact, just today I told my daughter on the phone that we had just gotten our shampoos carpeted. LOL
