Overheard in the ER…

Lab Tech: “So you think that’s tough? My math professor in college was a concentration camp survivor. The Nazis had cut out his tongue, and you could barely understand him when he lectured.”

Ditzy ER Clerk: Oh, that’s so sad! Was he a German?”

Lab Tech: “Maybe. But he was Jewish.”

Ditzy ER Clerk: “Yeah, that’s what I meant.”

AD (to black ER Doc): “Um, that’s kinda like having one of your ancestors lynched and having someone ask if they were black.”

Black ER Doc: “Yeah, but he was from Alabama. That’s what they meant.”
