    easy child went into work last night and sat down in report.

    As she was given the list of her patients for the shift these names were given:

    xxxxx Balls

    xxxxx Cox

    xxxxxx Peters

    All three are male. All of their rooms were next door to each other.

    easy child spent the nite finding empty rooms to shut herself in to crack up laughing, as did most of the other staff members. She said by the time the shift was over her sides were hurting.

    Even when she told me about it today she couldn't stop laughing.

    I think her gaurdian angel decided she needed a stress releaver. :rofl:

    That is truly prescious. It reminds me of when I was a telemarketer (I know evil job but it paid the bills). I had a name pop up and almost fell out of my chair. The name was Harry Balls. I thought I was losing my mind. But it was really his name.

    Glad she had a good laugh.

    In my job we used to have to handle exam papers - sort them on arrival and then check the marks when they came back. These were medical students and there were a lot of them. And some of the names gave us plenty to chuckle about. I do recall one interesting surname for a prospective doctor - "Kneebone". We wondered if he was going to specialise in orthopaedics. It never occurred to us to wonder if the many Cox's, Peters' and similar were going to study urology...

    I have to ask how she made it through her shift with a straight face? Was she able to speak with these patients with-o a smirk on her face?

    I know that it isn't professional but these names at that time of night would set me off into giggles as well.
