“Another Level Of Stupid” Stories That Are Facepalm-Worthy's Profile


12.

The medical tech who must have been used to the metric system:

“I once had to take my husband to seek medical care at a ‘doc-in-the-box’ situation. When doing the usual triage routine, the tech took his weight and height. She said, ‘OK, you’re 189 pounds and 6’1″.’ He said, ‘What!? I’ve always been 5’11”.’ And she said, ‘No, you’re definitely 6’1”. He kind of puffed up for a minute, feeling all tall and cool, and said, ‘Huh! maybe I grew since the last time I was measured.’

“We got to the exam room and he said to her again, ‘Are you sure? I’ve always thought I was 5’11”.’ And she said, ‘No, definitely. You’re 71 inches, so 6 feet 1 inch.’

“My husband and I exchanged glances. ‘Oh, no, 71 inches is 5’11”,’ he said.

“She said, ‘No, I’m 61 inches and I’m 5 feet 1 inch, so if you’re 71 inches, you’re 6 feet 1 inch!’ And he said, ‘Yeah, but…feet have 12 inches, not 10, so 71 inches is 5 feet and 11 inches.’ She said, ‘Well, that’s how we do it here.’

“I literally choked on my water. My husband and I couldn’t make eye contact until she left the room, and then we freaked out. It was hilarious and terrifying that this medical tech didn’t understand basic measurement.”
