Unfiltered Story #28006

I work as a researcher in a university hospital. One day, I’m submitting a file to the ethics committee for a clinical trial with patients. The office is located in another building and a lot of construction is going on around it, so the entrance is very muddy, causing me to slip and fall. My boss sees me returning with mud stains on my pants and asks what happened.

Me: *tells the whole story*

Boss: So you were submitting the file for the clinical trial?

Me: Yes.

Boss: *now laughing* I thought you stated in the document that there were no risks involved in this trial?

Me: Indeed…for the patients. I didn’t state there weren’t any risks involved for the researcher…

*both laughing*
