Funny story: Riding the elevator yesterday...

A couple and I were in the elevator yesterday and the wife noticed my work badge.  She said to me, "Since you work here, can you tell me where they do neurosurgery here?"  I just looked at her and slowly said, "I'm pretty sure they do it in the OR (operating room)..."  She looked at me and laughed to herself a bit and said, "That's good!  I hope they do surgery in the OR!" and I quickly corrected her and said, "You are wondering where the neurosurgery nursing units are!" and I proceeded to tell her.

The couple got off the elevator and thanked me and the wife added that her temporal lobe will be taken out.  (I don't even know if I heard her right - is that possible?)

As the elevator doors closed, I hastily said, "Good luck..."

It's moments like those when I don't know what to say...
