x65943 Today I was in the OR and a Filipina nurse asks the Vietnamese anesthesiologist

"So have you been to the Philippines?"

"Yes, when I was a kid"

"Ooh, what were you there for?"


"Camp, that's fun, like a summer camp? How long were you there?"

"6 months, I learned broken English from the other kids"

"6 months that's a long time!"


"What kind of camp goes that long?"

*Incessant questions go on like this for a few more minutes*

"Doctor, you are really gonna have to excuse me, because this doesn't sound like a summer camp"

"It was a refugee camp"

Awkward silence all around, anesthesiologist leaves the room as endoscopy is finishing and no one talks for 5 minutes after he is gone.
