It’s obvious why this person was obsessed with singing this classic holiday song – it was right around Christmas, and there were probably decorations all over.
Music is a powerful thing – we all have these songs we love to listen to when we’re sad. We sing them in the car, we listen to them while doing chores. They’re made to help us feel better, which is one possible reason why this patient took to singing as much as possible. Even the nurses got into the fun, joining in with the song and spreading some good cheer all the way through the hospital.
It Had to Be You
If you've had surgery, there's a likelihood that you had to be uncovered in front of a medical professional. It depends on the type of procedure you had, how long you had to stay in the hospital, and whether you needed much help doing things like using the bathroom.
The person telling this story had the bad luck of needing to have surgery and getting an old coworker as the nurse for the surgery. For some reason, the patient was all about the fact that the coworker would see him or her naked, and that's the very last thing he or she said before zonking out.
I Trusted You!
There are a couple of things to consider for this story. First, the age of the patient. If it was an adult, then that's one thing, but what if it's a kid? Did an eleven-year-old drop the F-bomb to a medical professional? We’re actually going with the younger age bit — at least under eighteen.
Most people are aware that the gas mask they place on you isn't ONLY oxygen, so this very well might be the first time he or she has gone under. Once they have it the first time, they know what to expect.
The Devil Can't Count Backwards. Everyone Knows That
We have here a potent twofer of excellent stories. The second is a little simpler – a hairy man could double as a carpet. Classic. The first of the two has a little more to it.
The patient thinks he's in a much warmer place and needs to make sure by having the tale-teller count backward from one hundred. How that would actually prove he isn't the devil escapes us. We're pretty sure the Bible doesn't mention Satan's math skills anywhere.
Gordon Ramsay Would be Ashamed
When we're put under by some of that sweet knockout gas, our brains take a step back toward childhood and start to move in much simpler ways. For instance, this person asked for a peanut butter steak, which isn't served anywhere that we can think of. Maybe some fancy places in Chicago or something like that, but no self-respecting steakhouse is going to offer steak with a side of peanut butter.
DESPITE how good that sounds. Actually, peanut butter is becoming a more common burger topping. Maybe it will reach over to steak before long, too.
