Ward Clerk: "We have a consult you for pre-op clearance on a patient."
Me: "Ok, where's the patient at?"
Ward Clerk: "They're bringing her up from surgery now."
Me: "Wait, what?"
Ward Clerk: "They're bringing her up..."
Me: "I heard that. They want me to do a pre-op consult on someone coming back from surgery?"
Ward Clerk: "That is a bit silly isn't it?"
Me: "Fire up the time machine and I'll see the patient yesterday."
