Hi, My Name Is John Hopkins

I work as clerical support and a receptionist on a busy day ward. We occasionally get calls from companies that manufacture medical equipment to tell us about their products in the hope the hospital will buy them.

One day, I got a call from such a company. The person on the phone began with, “Are you a hospital in need of new medical equipment?”

A little confused and too busy to take the call, I asked them to call back later and hung up.

Within minutes, my colleague had a call. It was obviously from the same company because I heard him reply, “Well, I’m not a hospital myself, but the building that I am in is a hospital. The hospital is very busy at the moment, but I can speak for it.”

I could barely speak because I was laughing so hard!
