According to Bored Daddy, the call was strategically planned and the twist, in the end, will leave you feeling impressed with this woman.

An old woman called the St. Joseph’s Hospital. Speaking to the operator, she asked to speak to someone who could inform her of how a patient was doing?

The operator helpfully offered to assist and asked for the patient's name and room number. The senior citizen replied, “Norma Findlay, Room 302.”
