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.
