A smart senior woman called the hospital to ask about a patient and what she said has the operator at the other end of the line laughing.


Elders tend to get stereotyped as people who can't crack or understand jokes and that they lack a sense of humor.

But this particular elderly woman proved that even if old people have health concerns, that doesn't stop them from having a little fun.

The grandmother in this story used her sharp wit to her advantage and made the people of her age-group proud.

She called St. Joseph's Hospital once and enquired about a patient. She asked the operator if she could speak to a person who could tell her about the health of a patient.

The operator replied that she most certainly could and asked the old woman the name and room number of the patient.


The old lady said, “The name of the patient is Norma Findlay, and her room number is 302.”

The operator then put her on hold to check with Norma's nurse and told the old lady that she would be reconnecting with her shortly after she gets the information.

A couple of minutes later, the operator returned on the line and said to the lady that there was no need for her to worry because she had received positive news regarding the patient.

The nurse told her, “Norma is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine, and her blood tests just came back as normal. Her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday.”

The old lady took a breath of relief and thanked the operator for giving her the necessary information. She said, “Thank you. That’s wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you!”

The operator replied the old lady with a “welcome” and asked who if Norma was her daughter.

Hearing the operators question the old lady laughed and said that Norma was not her daughter. She added, “I’m Norma Findlay in 302. No one ever tells me anything!”
