Broken Hearted

| Eugene, OR, USA | Working | August 29, 2014

(My baby brother has a heart condition that makes his heart sound strange, but is otherwise healthy. My mother and I are at the doctor’s for a regular check-up, and a medical student is there to examine him.)

Medical Student: “All right, let’s check his heartbeat.”

(He pulls out a stethoscope and starts moving it around on my brother’s chest, but when he finds his heart the medical student stops moving and turns white.)

Mom: “What’s happening? Is he all right?”

Medical Student: *very slowly* “Oh, no, we’re fine…”

Mom: “Oh, he has a weird sounding heart, but he’s healthy.”

Medical Student: “Oh, thank god! I didn’t know what to do!”
