Patients Say the Darndest Things

Conversation I had today with a patient:
Me: "Hi- I'm Kristi"
Patient: "How do you spell your name?"
Me: "K-R-I-S-T-I"
Patient: "Oh! That's how my friend spells her name. Only she's skinny."

This wasn't a mental patient by any chance, was it?

Martha said...

OMG! What the hell? Maybe the think before you speak part of her life got removed from her memory. Oh, by the way, is all that food for you?

I didn't really know how to respond. It was bizarre. She's bizarre. She wasn't that old, maybe close to 70.

Twee-twah! HA! Yep that's a bizarre patient too!

Could have said "Yeah, but can she do this?" and do a funny dance! I guess you just have to laugh at the cooky stuff kids say-oh yeah, she was old!
