I walked in the room to see two nurses standing by the bed. Mrs. Tinystroke looked awful. Unconscious, limp, drooling and very pale.
Dr. Grumpy: "What happened? When did this start?!!!"
Nurse Nightshift: "She's been like this all night."
Dr. Grumpy: "WHAT! Why didn't anyone call me!"
Nurse Nightshift: "Because..."
Dr. Grumpy: "This is unbelievable! My patient burns down overnight and you guys don't think to call me? Holy crap! I need a STAT head CT and..."
Nurse Nightshift: "DOCTOR GRUMPY!!!"
Dr. Grumpy: "What? I don't want some lame excuse..."
Nurse Nightshift: "LOOK! The reason I didn't call you is because THIS ISN'T YOUR PATIENT!!!" Mrs. Tinystroke is in room 17. You're in 16."
Dr. Grumpy: "These gray heads are all starting to look alike."
Nurse Nightshift: "Yes, and you're giving both of us one."
Mrs. Tinystroke: "Dr. Grumpy, is that you out in the hall? Can I go home today?"
