An old lady phoned the hospital and asked if she could check on a patient.
“I can do that for you,” said the operator. “What’s the name and room number?”
“Bettie Mahoney, room 309,” said the woman.
After placing the woman on hold for a few minutes, the operator returned.
“I have good news! Her nurse just told me that Bettie is doing very well and will be discharged on Tuesday.”
“That’s wonderful!” said the woman. “I was so worried. Thank you for your help.”
“Not a problem,” said the operator. “Is Bettie your daughter?”
“No,” said the woman. “I’m Bettie in room 309. No one tells me anything.”
