Excuse me? Did you say Drugs?

I couldn't help but laugh every time I remember this incident.

I was walking along the corridor in the hospital one day when my duty mate asked me to tell her if our clinical instructor would be around because she would be able to do her drugs. Unfortunately for her, interns were also passing by and overheard our conversation and reacted to the word "drugs". They have misinterpreted our conversation and thought that my duty mate was asking me to be her look out while she take some recreational drugs.

Fortunately enough the interns realized that she meant to say to do her drug study so that she could administer her medication to her patient already.

Moral Lesson: Always complete your sentences.
