Heh, that always happened to my Mom. She was a smoker with a smoker's voice. She was called "sir" far more often than "ma'am".

I work in a pharmacy at a children's hospital. For safety we verify both a birthday and a name of each child before dispensing a prescription. You can't believe how many people come to my counter and announce that they need to "pick up my child's medicine.". I usually stand there for a pregnant pause before asking if said child has a name? Usually I'll get a first name and have to ask again for the last name. Then I'll say something like, birth date? Most dad's just panic and get the deer in the headlights look. They're better off than the moms who at this point usually answer with, "you want my birth date?". You can't make this stuff up. 😙🤔😕

In all fairness to some, needing to be at a children's hospital means their stress levels are likely astronomical. Add in some good ole fashion fatigue and you have a receipt for brain-deaded-ness.

When my daughter was in, we slept just a couple of hours as we couldn't stand to be away from her bedside.

Now, for a funny story- we camp at first come/first served Thousand Trails parks. You pick your sit and then call the ranger with your site #. We got here on Tuesday, got parked, setup, and I had to run to the post office. On the way, I called the ranger to tell him my site. Problem was, it wasn't until AFTER he said "hello" did I realize that I had NO IDEA what my site # was. Had to explain that one like a jack wagon... "Yeah, uhmmm... well, I called to tell you my site # and I don't know it!"

He laughed and asked if I knew how to get back to it.

Touché. Be assured that we spoil everyone at Children's Mercy Hospital! I can guarantee that everyone leaves with a smile. We get the privilege of taking care of really sick kids and making them better. They think that they were helped and don't even realize how much they do for me and my crew.

We did have one dad with the deer look, then he busted a grin and started laughing. He rolled up his sleeve and had his kids names and birth dates tattooed on his arm. All he said was I told my wife that this was a good idea. Now I can prove it.

Grace and peace all.

Sorry, I know you mean well- it's just a been there, done that, and still have the wounds kind of thing.

That's hilarious about the tattoo!
