How Ignorant can People Be?

These are all real questions I have gotten while working at a Catholic hospital:

1. "Do you all do abortions?"

No, but we possibly should have done one when your mother asked that same question.

2. "Is there a place in your hospital where I can donate my eggs and get money?"

Only if they're absolutely fresh and you have a full dozen in that teeny tiney little styrofoam carton

3. "Can I come in to your ER and get a 'Morning After' pill?"

Sorry, the only 'Morning After' pill we have here is an asprin for your hangover.

4. "Do you have some sperm donors there?"

Not officially, but we do have some single men in the residency program who are looking for dates pretty much all the time.

5. "Can I come to be a sperm donor at your hospital?"

Gee, sir, I'm a married woman!

6. "I need to ask your nurse how come it hurts when I pee."

Why don't you just let me give you the number to the VD clinic at the public health department, Casanova?

7. "Y'all have nuns there?"

Not so's you'd notice. And no, none of them looks like 'The Penguin' in the Blues Brothers.

8. "Can I come there even if I'm not Catholic?"

You mean there are actually folks who aren't Catholic? Perish the thought!

9. "What do you mean, I can't have my doctor's home phone number?"

And perhaps then you can pay for his number change and all of the resulting paperwork, not to mention cover my lost wages while I look for a job? No?

Apparently they can be exceptionally ignorant.

No great thinker myself, I must go rinse out my brain lest the idiocy somehow seep into me... I've got all I can take NOW. ;)

Great post, I do think some of those have worked for me, somewhere.
