Chelle in MO Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 (edited) I called our pediatrician's ofc. today and asked to speak to a nurse regarding ds15's cough. The receptionist asked if I could hold for a minute as there was a call ahead of mine, so I held. In the meantime, I was carrying on a conversation w/my kids. Nurse comes on the line while the kids and I are talking and says something that sounded to me like, "Are you the one holding for a nurse?" To which I replied, "Yes." Nurse then asked me for ds's birthdate, and I said, "5/15/96." (Fictional month and day ;)) Nurse then said, "NINETY-SIX?" and I said, "Yes". Nurse then said, "NINETY-SIX?" To which I again said, "Yes." And all the while I thought, "I know that's the right date. I mean, I was THERE! Why is she questioning the date?" Nurse said, incredulously, "And you're BREASTFEEDING him???" I said, laughing, "Noooo, I'm calling about his cough!" Nurse said, "Oh! When I came on the line, I asked if this was my breastfeeding call and you said yes! I guess I shouldn't judge you if you ARE breastfeeding him, but..." So I guess I didn't hear her accurately when she came on the line! We both had a good laugh! :lol: Edited January 27, 2012 by Chelle in MO Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
