    Pointing Out The Obvious

    | Luton, UK | Family & Kids, Top

    (A 4-year-old child has trapped her finger in a door, so I’m going over the accident form with her mother when she comes to pick her up.)

    Mother: “Index finger? What the h*** is that?”

    Me: *showing her* “This one here.”

    Mother: “What? That’s a pointer-finger.”

    Me: “Well, yes, but in medicine it’s called the index finger.”

    Mother: “That’s not true. I’ve never heard that. Is that supposed to be funny? Just because I’m a woman–”

    Me: “Well, no–”

    Mother: “Yes, it is! What kind of a man works at a nursery anyway?”

    Child: “A man who knows about fingers!”
