    Sadly Wasn’t Born Yesterday, Part 2

    | Texas, USA | Family & Kids, Health & Body

    Me: “Thank you for calling [hospital]. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Yeah. I had a baby at your hospital about a week ago, and when I was discharged I got a lot of papers and some samples. One of the papers says something about a PKU test.”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. How can I help you with that?”

    Caller: “Well, it says on this paper that I need to bring my ‘new arrival’ to registration and they would help me get the PKU test done. I want you to know that I have looked all through the papers and stuff you gave me and I can’t find anything marked ‘new arrival’. What is this ‘new arrival’ I am supposed to bring with me when I come in?”

    Me: “Ma’am, that would be your infant child…your new baby.”

    Caller: “Oh my freaking God! If you mean ‘new baby’, then write ‘new baby’! Not everyone understands this hospital medical jargon!”
