Overheard from the nurse’s station II
It started with a group of us chatting over coffee. “Let’s collect funny stuff we overhear.”
We asked around, posted the idea on Facebook and were inundated with random anecdotes. The first version got a great response, so here are more of your submissions – The Scrubs Team.

Patient: I don’t have insurance.

Overheard by A Torres.
Nurse 1: I got a full night’s sleep, but I’m still tired.
Nurse 2: To think, you could have done something fun last night and woke up feeling the same way.
Nurse 1: Now I’m depressed and tired.
