Just Overheard in the Office....

Person 1 is asking Person 2 about an impending tonsil surgery.

Person 1: Well, just don't end up like my dad. When he was about 12, he went in to the hospital expecting to get a tonsillectomy, but when he woke up, his wee-wee hurt instead! They'd given him a vasectomy too!

Person 2: (confused silence)

Person 1: His mom and dad told the doctors, "While he's out, do the vasectomy too!" He was 12!

Person 2: (more confused silence)

Person 1: Oh, no! Not a vasectomy! A Caesarean! No! I mean, a circumcision.

Everyone in earshot: OHHHHHH.

Ouch. That's a painful trifecta and confusing them could have disasterous results.

Yes. Please, readers, be reassured with the knowledge that I do not work with medical professionals, who hopefully would be more aware of the difference. :)
