We certainly opened a can of worms with the first part of this series, which chronicled everything from a family member who snuck in cats to visit his asthmatic mother to a husband who fell asleep in the patient’s bed while she was in the bathroom.

Here are 10 more patient visitor antics that are too good not to be true.

10. The girlfriend who came to visit her boyfriend with her little girl. She left her daughter with her boyfriend (the patient) while she went shopping.
