60 Doctors Share Outrageous Experiences With Dumb Patients



Some people still haven’t figured out how the human body works. Otherwise, we wouldn’t need to start conversations like:

“Dear Doctors of Reddit, what was your dumbest patient experience?”

But, we also wouldn’t get to laugh (or cry) at all the incredulous answers they come up with!

Here are 60 of the most outrageous patient stories doctors experienced with patients.

1) She Broke Her Water – And Her Vajayjay

Most pregnant women know that when your water breaks, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Not even a glass cup.

@lmao_turkey, who works in the ER, said:

“We had a very pregnant patient come in needing stitches in her vagina. Turns out she was a realtor and didn’t want her water to break while she was showing a house, so she put a glass cup in her pants to catch the water. Instead of using a pad or an adult diaper, she went for a GLASS CUP. She sat down while showing a house and sure enough, it broke and cut her up pretty bad.”

2) Half Diet, All Nonsense

Sorry mate, adding diet soda doesn’t actually cancel out all the calories.

Here’s how @Frishypharma reacted to this girl’s poor math skills:

“Was working at a clinic. I was speaking with a non-controlled diabetic patient about her sugar intake and she said she drinks a 32 oz soda everyday. I ask her if it’s regular or diet and she replies with “It’s half-regular. I let the ice melt first so there isn’t as much sugar in it”. Sorry but that isn’t how it works.”

3) That’s Not What Smucker’s Jelly Is For

She has jelly for brains.


“Had a young woman with recurring UTIs that began after a recent partner and with no STDs; went through the standard questions trying to figure out what could be causing them and eventually found out she had been lubricating with jelly. Not KY jelly. The mixup had literally been a joke on House. It took me some effort to keep a straight face, but we eventually resolved the problem and she stopped getting UTIs.”

4) Bad Case Of The Fart-Attacks

It hurt so much, everyone thought she was a goner.

In this thread, an anonymous Reddit user said:

“A lady comes screaming into the ER, Now she’s all dressed up, so are her 2 grown daughters. All of them screaming hysterically that their mother is going to die. I go by them and nearly get tackled by the SIL, husband of one of the daughters.”

The family had just come from a wedding, where mom had apparently eaten one too many potatoes. After a shot of pantoprazole, her fart embolism went away.

5) Dehydration Therapy Hack

Yeah, it turns out that dehydration therapy doesn’t actually work.

“I had a patient who was a completely non-compliant diabetic, smoker, morbidly, who had his first heart attack at 45. His blood pressure was also super high. And instead of taking his anti-hypertensive medications, he went to the gym. In the gym: he would sit in the sauna for a very long time, and sweat a lot, and lower his blood pressure by becoming dehydrated.”

6) High Blood Pressure Trick

If they keep at it, they won’t have to worry about blood pressure at all.

@aberdine_8 said:

“So – the patient had low blood pressure – so their self treatment: eating more fatty foods in order to decrease the size of their blood vessels in order to increase the blood pressure within their system…”

7) Fancy Bacon Foot Wrap

A diabetic treated his little piggies to a bacon foot wrap.

@Rdthedo explains why this isn’t a good idea.

“We had a diabetic foot patient a couple weeks ago who thought that wrapping his foot in raw bacon would help get rid of bacteria not too long ago. Not too long ago was also about 4 toes ago….”

8) Mom Doesn’t Know Best

Sometimes mother nature doesn’t always know what’s best, either. Otherwise, she wouldn’t let scary people like this mom exist.

“Had a pregnant woman who’s ultrasound showed the baby had Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (Half a heart, 100% fatal without surgery) who stopped seeing her OB so she could have the baby in the forest and bathe it is breast milk to cure him. SMDH”

9) Battery Shoved Up His Nose

Mom should have known better than to argue with the doctor!

@TableWallFurance remembers this story well:

“The kid had cruddy green/bloody stuff coming out of his left nostril, and a lot of redness and swelling of only the left side of his nose and the adjacent cheek. Mom was sure he caught a sinus infection and just wanted some antibiotics…Mom was insistent that he NEVER puts things in his nose.”

He found a button battery from a watch stuffed up in there. In another couple of days, it would have started burning a hole through the boy’s nose.

10) Worst Diet For Pregnancy

After she miscarried, this woman’s pregnancy hormones remained alarmingly high. She forgot to clue her doctor in on an important piece of diet information.

From @KaylaChinga:

“Docs are worried because she might have some retained placenta or pituitary disorder and this could be super bad for future fertility. We call her in for a conversation about the hormone levels not going away. After talking together about what might be wrong, they are going to go home and think about further tests. She says “I need to go. I have an appointment at the weight-loss center for an HCG shot. Turns out that she is on the HCG diet. HCG IS the pregnancy hormone.”

11) Effective Family Planning Method

@gr8googamooga related this scary medical office tale:

“Patient inquiring about birth control was adamant she wanted an IED.”

Studies have shown that “improvised explosive devices” will prevent pregnancies 100% of the time.

12) Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em

Wishful thinking won’t make the warning labels on packs of cigarettes go away.

@5123 says:

“I’m a corpsman, not a doctor, but I once had a patient tell me that there was no credible research that smoking was bad for one’s health.”

13) He Just Couldn’t See The Truth

He thought the glaucoma machine was responsible for making his family go blind.

CaptainTheGabe, an optician, had this to say:

“He said that puff machine gives you glaucoma and we weren’t going to pull that on him. He told us his father got an exam, and had glaucoma after using that machine. His uncle and brother also had no signs of glaucoma, and after getting the puff test, both people had been diagnosed with the disease. Glaucoma doesn’t have any outward symptoms before you start going blind…he has a very strong familial disposition to glaucoma, and refused to be tested for it.”

14) Doctors Don’t Heal, But Books Do

If the book was a popular bestseller, then it probably has even more healing power.

This particular incident stuck out like a sore ulcer for @jdubs33:

“80+ y.o. patient who was declining with multiple diagnoses and about 3 decubitus ulcers. Daughter was adamant that her father be kept on his strict “paleo” diet because that would “supercharge” his healing. She had a stack of diet books. He simply wasn’t getting enough nutrition to heal the ulcers. He didn’t like the diet at all btw. At some point you kind of have to stop being polite and just tell patients/ family members bluntly that you don’t have time for this shit and what you recommend and they can do what they want and just document everything. It happens a lot but she sticks out.”

15) Could He Hear Any Better?

If you can’t see well enough to know what you’re putting into your eyes, then it’s probably time to get a new pair of glasses.

This optician, who shall remain anonymous, said:

“Had a patient put EAR DROPS in one eye. White part of eye (conjunctiva) scarred over entire cornea and was left with no light perception. Asked me if he should have come in sooner. It had been 4 months. He needs a cornea transplant…”

16) Paging Dr. Liar, Your Pants Are On Fire

The little boy who cried wolf grew up to be a pathological liar who likes to go to the dentist.

Dental student @Macabalony hears baloney all the time from patients:

“One patient in particular is pathological liar. During one visit, they claimed to have gone to medical school. Next visit was that they did dental Army. Last visit was that they had a PhD. The patient will say things like “Hey doc do you need me to move my head mesial or distal?” No. I need you to move your head right. “Hey doc, are these cavities being cause by the anaerobic pathology microbes?” No. They are cause by you eating snacks all day and not brushing.”

17) They Made It All Up

Some doctors are big meanies who have nothing better to do than pick on their patients, just because they can.

@Gastro_dude said:

“Not my story, rather my collegues. A patient was admitted for anemia and a localized cancer was found, she was refered to surgery so she can get cured from her localize cancer and she started telling everyone that it was the doctors who caused the cancer and that she was doing just fine before coming to the hospital. She lectured the surgeon and my collegue, who pleaded her to get her surgery (so that the cancer doesn’t advance), and yet she refused, saying she knew better and probably didn’t even have cancer…”

18) That’ll Show ‘Em

This man insisted on getting a second opinion for the heart attack he was having. Because, what if it wasn’t really a heart attack?

@Dyspaereunia didn’t treat this patient, but witnessed what happens when dumb gets dumber:

“I didn’t treat this patient but I was on shift when this guy came in with tombstones on his ekg in the setting of chest pain. He told the ED doc, “I want a second opinion before going to the cath lab.” This ekg is unmistakable. The interventionalist had to come down to the emergency department to tell him he was having a heart attack.”

19) This Doc Couldn’t See Straight

He was a doctor alright, but not the right kind.

@smokesmagoats was a young optician in her mid-twenties when this crazy thing happened:

“I had a guy come in saying he was a doctor and he wrote himself an RX for glasses and he brought frames. A few days later his lenses come back, he puts on his glasses, and he can’t see. So I check the lenses and the RX match what he wrote. I try to explain that there’s only two options, either they need to sit differently on his face or the RX isn’t good.”

Turns out that he wasn’t even an eye doctor – he was a lung specialist!

20) Overcome By Hysteria

This is what happens when hysteria takes over all common sense.

@xxsheaxx loves her job for crazy reasons like this:

“Had a mom in hysterics because she was convinced that her neighbor’s, friend’s, step son’s, teacher’s dog has MRSA so her baby was going to die. It took everything within me to not tell her that most of the hospital staff have MRSA. But it took 3 hours for me to finally calm her down after I called: infectious control, her pediatrician, gynecologist, and family doctor. Yes I had to call all these people; yes they laughed at me; yes she was beside me the whole time questioning their judgement.”

21)Sneaky Parents

Hospital food may be bad, but it’s still better than fast food!

@xxsheaxx also had this story to share:

“Patient was a young child who came in with an extremely high Blood Glucose level. Once she was stable we did some teaching and kept her for a few days for observation. For some reason every-time I checked her, her levels would be extremely high although we were appropriately treating her. Turns out her family would bring her fast food for every meal and hide it in the side table. More teaching and resources were put into place.”

22) He Never Knew It Was Missing

Here’s a birds and the bees anatomy lesson from @markko79:

“Nurse here. The number of American 20-something males who don’t know what circumcision is is ridiculously high. They think that boys are “born circumcised.” Evidence: New fathers (and mothers) asking me what’s wrong with their newborn son’s penis. “Ummm… He still has his foreskin. Many parents choose to have it removed when the baby is a couple days old. It’s called circumcision.” Often followed by a parent’s question: “What’s circumcision?” That’s when I face palm.”

23) Hammer Trick Doesn’t Always Work

After reading all the crazy shenanigans that happen at doctor’s offices, Reddit user @Tkcat jumped into the conversation with a story from the patient’s point of view!

“Im ashamed to say I have a story that fits here. I have a ganglion cyst on the inside of my wrist, when it starts getting large I smash my wrist down on a hard table and it goes away. I developed a similar bump on the top of my foot. I couldn’t smash it down like my wrist so I tried hitting it with a hammer. Didn’t do anything and it was getting bigger and interfering with my shoes so I got it investigated. Not a cyst, but arthritis in the joint. No wonder my hammer trick didn’t work. The radiologist did find my treatment method amusing, but advised me to get any more lumps checked out rather than randomly hitting things with a hammer.”

24) She Chose Nerves

The auntie of @SomeYorkTown knew why exactly her veins were blue.

“My aunt (who has varicose veins, pretty obvious to anyone who sees it) once asked me why her legs hurt and what those bluish lines under her skin were. I almost went on to explain to her about dilated veins when she interrupts and decides for herself that those are her nerves. Dying nerves. And the blue stuff was blood clots inside the nerves. I’m a med student.”

25) He Couldn’t Just Quit

People were relying on him for their livelihood.

Another story from @SomeYorkTown:

“I was doing a respiratory system examination on this guy who frequently(about once a month) gets admitted in the general ward with complaints of breathlessness. He’s had COPD for a couple of years. Quite bad. And he tells me that he isn’t going to quit smoking because ‘God’ told him not to. When asked why, he tells me that the people who are relying on him for their daily livelihood won’t survive if he stopped. I went on to ask him if he meant the people at the cigarette factory or the health industry. He didn’t get the sarcasm though.”

26) He Took The Blue Pill…

…when he should have taken the red one.

@SomeYorkTown says:

“Patient comes to the surgery clinic with complaints of mass per rectum. (Now I wasn’t there the first time he came). But the surgeon wanted to do a couple of investigations and advised him to get admitted. The guy decided he doesn’t want to. Couple of months later, he comes back to the clinic. Apparently he went to one of these alternative medicine places or whatever and they had tied this metal wire(not exactly sure why) around the mass. By then, this mass has eroded through it and was bleeding and had gotten much bigger. Turned out to be a cancerous growth.”

27) Yeah, About Those Essential Oils…

It doesn’t always work the way the Internet says it will.

Here’s a scary warning from@chickenpants80:

“I was a unit secretary and nurse aide on a radiation oncology unit in the early 2000’s. We had a patient show up through the ER and was admitted for emergency radiation treatment. She had a massive fungating mass in her mouth that had consumed half her head. When the RadOnc doc tried to examine her and open her mouth, her remaining teeth fell out into his hand. It had eaten through the bones of her face, invaded her eye socket, everything. Doc said it was the worst case of mouth cancer he’d seen. According to her husband, she had a small lesion on her hard palate, and upon receiving the diagnosis of an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, she decided to treat with essential oils and things like frankincense because chemo was poison. Her husband said he had tried to reason with her but she was adamant about the ‘natural’ treatment. She died in agony shortly after.”

28) You’re Wrong, I’m Right

The customer may always be right, but the same can’t be said for patients.

From medical tech @EarthwormJane:

“Did a fingerstick for a patient, ensured the little cut stopped bleeding, and then put a band-aid on it. Told her to collect a urine sample for testing. Test came back strongly positive (4+ reading) for blood. She complained to the doctor that there is NO WAY she has blood in her urine, and that the blood from her fingerstick must have entered the urine, throwing off her reading. She said it was my fault that I did her blood test before her urine test, and I obviously made a mistake. She repeated the test later in the afternoon, still at 4+. Came back a week later, still at 4+. The look on her face when I told her “sorry, ma’am, your result is still positive” was priceless.”

29) He Was A Con Artist

Mom thinks eyes doctors are con artists who just want to sell glasses.

@sosanostra, who works in an optometrist office, said:

“When the doctor was explaining to the mom that her son had to wear his glasses all the time since he’s nearsighted and basically can’t see clearly past 5′ in front of him. For some reason this caused a switch to flip in the mom and she spazzed out on the doctor, saying that her son doesn’t need glasses and that the doctor is only saying that he does because he wants to sell glasses. She says that she only brought her son in because there was some form for school that needed to be filled out and that doctors are all a con artists trying to push unnecessary medications and interventions. The doctor tried to calm her down and explain that he’s only trying to help them but that she was free to get a second opinion and gave her a copy of the kids prescription and sent them on their way. About four months later the lady is back asking for another copy of her son’s prescription. Apparently the first semester midterm results were in, and her son failed them all, because he couldn’t see the board in his classes and needs glasses!”

30) Medical-Grade Stuff

He wasn’t used to the legal stuff. It could shock his system.

From @CalvinsStuffedTiger:

“Not a doctor but I’m a nurse who worked in the OR at a trauma center. Was doing surgery on a 19 year old who tested positive for meth and cocaine who was grilling the anesthesiologist about every drug we were going to use in surgery because “he doesn’t like putting chemicals in his body.” Gotta stick with that organic, fair trade, Non-GMO cocaine.”

31) Dr. Yahoo Is In The House

Forget Dr. Google, Dr. Yahoo is the next big thing.

This one comes from a patient who was outing her mom:

“My grandmother has Crohn’s disease. Very very badly. It skipped my mother and her brother. When I was 15, over the course of 6 months, I went from being 5’9 and 190 pounds to being 110. I was a skeleton, extremely anemic, and coughing up blood. My mother was CONVINCED it was something else. I forced her to bring me to a doctor and she spouted off all these possibilities. She then talked about what she yahooed. Not even googled. Yahoo. About genetics and such. And “crohns can’t skip generations.”Well the doc said “just in case. We’re gonna run some tests. Long story short I have crohns in my throat and small intestine. So does my cousin. It just skipped a generation.”

32) He Knew What He Had

The doctor was just wasting his time talking about irrelevant things, like trips to Africa.

From @cazman123, whose dad is an emergency room nurse:

“I had a patient come in with several pages he printed off the internet. He kinda slammed them down and said, “This is what I have.” He had bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody stool, and fever among other things. He insisted he had Schistosomiasis. He was being a real jerk about it like we’re wasting time since he already knew what he had.”

The next question threw the patient off guard.

“So, I asked when did he get back from Africa. And he said, “Africa? I’ve never been to Africa. What the hell would I be doing in Africa?” I proceeded to tell him that Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease one gets while swimming in the Nile River or other rivers in developing countries like in Southeast Asia. He got pissed off at me because he thought I was being a smart ass. He got seen and diagnosed with gastroenteritis (the stomach flu). The bloody stool? He had hemorrhoids.”

33) It’s Funny At First

But, then you realize that some people are just mentally ill. For real.

From 4th year medical student @Eshlau:

“Patient comes in with a laundry list of chronic conditions he suffers from- fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc. Guy is wearing over-the-counter braces on all of his fingers and both thumbs, as well as both wrists, forearms, knees, and shins because of a rare bone disorder he has that I’ve never heard of- “well that doesn’t surprise me, doctors go to med school to learn how to prescribe drugs and make money, not heal people.” Ok. Patient tells me that he suffers from a rare disease that I’ve probably never even heard of called myalgic encephalomyelitis. True, I’ve never heard of it.”

After the patient leaves, the doc-in-training looks it up.

“I look up myalgic encephalomyelitis. It’s the British term for chronic fatigue syndrome, which the patient also had. He has a weekly standing appointment with my preceptor, which is the only thing that keeps him from visiting the local ER every day, sometimes multiple times a day. His diagnosis is Illness Anxiety Disorder, although he would tell you it’s 800 other things you’ve obviously never heard of. The patient is mentally ill, so I’m not insulted by him or anything, but you’d be surprised how many people come to the doctor to be treated for something, all the while telling the doctor how horrible they are and why all doctors are evil puppets of big pharma.”

34) Wants Zero Glucose Levels

He doesn’t believe the nurse when she says it’s a bad thing.

@brownskinned, an oncology nurse who works with patients undergoing clinical trials, said:

“I told him his glucose level was 73. Normal range is usually between 70-100. He got really upset at this point, and asked him “what’s wrong? Your labs are within range!” And he said “I need it to be zero.”

He said it was for a new clinical trial.

“I don’t know what clinical trial you’re trying to get into, but if your blood glucose was zero, you’d be dead or dying.” He was not convinced because I’m “just a nurse,” so I sent a message to his MD asking them to educate their patients better.”

35) Doctors Can Be Dumb, Too!

Physical therapist and inner ear/balance specialist @askdoctorjake thought it was only fair to note that even physicians can be dumb.

“I had a patient come in with unmistakable signs of BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), a condition where the salt crystals that fall on hair cells in your ears to tell you which way is down and which direction(s) you are accelerating in get stuck. When this happens, your ears and eyes disagree about your current position and acceleration and you get really dizzy.”

The patient saw an urgent care doc, who diagnosed her with BPPV. He told her to go home, lay down on the bed with her head hanging off the end, and have her husband shake her head.

“Imagine being on the most intense rollercoaster you’ve ever been on, feeling like you’re going to throw up, and then having someone who has no medical training shake your head around for five minutes. She spent the next two days throwing up before she could get in to see me.”

36) But, Cigarettes Come From Plants!

Everyone has their vice. At least his used to be a leafy green.

From @malibooootay:

“Paramedic here. Transported a guy who was adamant about only using homeopathic medicine, natural/healthy living, etc and refusing meds/interventions/x-rays on this basis. He also smoked a pack a day. The ED doc called him on this nonsense with something along the lines of “you smoke so you’re not that homeopathic, you’re getting a chest x-ray.”

37) Wonky Mind Control Methods

Turns out it that mind control doesn’t work for diabetic foot ulcers.

@entMD has seen firsthand how mind control can fail a person:

“Had a patient with a HgbA1c of 13 who refused all diabetic medications because he believed that he could control his livers production of glucose with his mind. He believed himself to be very fit and active and felt that with his mental control he was a better athlete than most other people because he could ramp up his glucose production when he needed to. He was in the hospital for a diabetic foot ulcer that required a transmetatarsal amputation.”

38) DIY Cosmetic Surgery

He thought that vegetable oil was just as good as that medical-grade dermal filler stuff.

As told by @AvalonAPV:

“A male patient inyected kitchen oil into his own cheeks because he saw a plastic surgery tv show where a surgeon inyected something similar to a model, then he was amazed that the bumps of the oil didnt go away and were turning red and painful…”

39) You Don’t Drill Cavities

Her mom is a dental assistant and knows better than the actual dentist.

@pheebers was peeved at this mom:

“Was treating cavities on a very nervous 4 year old. Had finally gotten into a cooperative groove when genius mother looked up from her phone and noticed that I was drilling teeth (she was in the room the whole time – I had reviewed treatment with her, she knew we were fixing cavities). Proceeds to curse me out under her breath saying “you’re drilling holes in her teeth! this is…ridiculous, you people are scammers making holes in people’s teeth!”

At this point the dentist is mad at mom for being 20 minutes late, and scaring her kid with her screaming.

“Appointment is over, kid jumps down high fives and gives me a big hug and I turn to mom and ask her how exactly she thought cavities were fixed? She said ‘you don’t drill, my mother is a dental assistant”. I then proceeded to explain in excruciating detail the scientific process of how we remove decay. She said “that’s not true” I then told her that she can go ask her mom, ask Google or go to dental school if she wants to know more but I won’t be treating her child anymore.”

40) Baby-Only Zone

They were old enough to know that’s not where we get our milk from. From @balasurr:

“I saw a patient who was concerned because she was still lactating, despite the fact that she stopped breastfeeding her twins two years ago. She said: “sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and find my husband sucking on the breasts. He says he’s trying to drain the milk for me” I had to explain to her that breastfeeding her husband will lead to continued Lactation….”

41) He Misunderstood The News

And it was kind of sad. @kd3072 wrote:

“This one happened to my ex father in law, and it’s funny, but it’s not. He was a surgeon (very gentle, soft spoken guy) and came out to tell them the biopsy results, to which they responded “Praise Jesus, it’s malignant.” (He had to explain that ‘malignant’ meant bad.)”

42) Priorities, People!

Thankfully this triage doc knew which order he should do things.

“A guy brings his wife to the ER, Her leg has a 7cmx7cm wound (diabetic ulcer) with greenish yellow pus and what looked like a few maggots. Now I took one look at her and referred her to the Surgery department for admission. But the hubby is adamant on his wife’s kidney disease. “But doc, it’s just a wound, you gotta fix her kidney first doc, I read online that diabetes can cause kidney failure, and you gotta do something for that. I spent an hour convincing him that his wife would probably die before the kidney damage sat in by sepsis from the clearly infected wound.”

43) It’s Not Sun-Cough

But, maybe she should start researching what’s causing that smoker’s cough.

From @Dr_Dubs:

“Lady walks into the office. I start coughing the smell of cigarette smoke is so strong on her. Her dry leathery skin cracks while she talks from the years of sun abuse. She tells me, “I’ve stopped using sunscreen because I researched that it causes cancer.”

44) Flea Treatment For Kids

If it works for their dogs, why not use it on their flea-infested kid?

From @habitual_wanderer:

“I got this from my friend, who is a doctor on the children’s ward in a rural hospital. These parents bring in their child whose hair is infested with lice. The lice was visible to the naked eye and could be seen crawling on the child’s clothing. While the medical staff examined the child, in order to determine a course of action, they discovered the child was covered in a white powder and smelled heavily of chemicals. They asked the parents what were the substances and the smells emanating from the child. The parents said, quite matter of fact, it was Sevin Powder and flea and tick spray they used on their dogs on the family’s farm. Needless to say, social workers were notified about this case.”

45) One For Me, One For You

At least they have one thing right – they should be doing everything possible not to have babies!

Here’s a good one from @StrutThatCorgiButt:

“One day in the pharmacy, a girl comes to the counter requesting a refill for her birth control. We pulled up her profile and realized we couldn’t refill it because she just got a 28-day fill less than 2 weeks ago. When we asked what happened to the other one, she said she was out. Apparently, both her and her boyfriend were each taking a pill each and was adamant that was how they needed to prevent pregnancy.”

46) Dad’s Not So Smart Move

It’s kind of a sad situation, but that’s what soup kitchens are for.

@talon03 isn’t a doctor, but said:

“We had a patient come into our hospital with anorexia requiring treatment, which, as usual, she didn’t want. However, she appeared to be eating her prescribed meals. After a few days it becomes clear she’s not putting on any weight, but the room is clean and she’s supervised for her bathroom visits, so we know she’s not flushing it away. Turns out her family are going though some tough times and her dad’s down on his luck and out of money. So when he’s coming to visit his anorexic daughter in hospital every day, he’s eating the food prescribed to her because he can’t afford to feed himself.”

47) He Had A Water Allergy

He’d been drinking nothing but Sprite and sweet tea for years due to his “water allergy.”

From Registered Nurse @jsellars8:

“I see some crazy stuff, but one thing that stands out was the time I was admitting a guy to the hospital. I can’t really remember what for but he was about 400lbs, diabetic, heart disease, you name it. A few minutes in he starts complaining that he’s thirsty. So I get on my phone and call the nurse assistant and as her to bring in some ice water. As soon as the words are out of my mouth the whole family screams “NOOOO! NO WATER! HES ALLERGIC TO WATER!”

48) Just A Scratch On Her Tummy

Her intestines started spilling out, but she didn’t even notice.

@drushkey asked his emergency doctor friend for this story:

“Patient comes in complaining of severe abdominal pain, nurses take vitals, ask questions etc. Eventually my friend sees her and, after a few questions, he has her lift her shirt. The “severe abdominal pain” on the chart was in fact due to a gash so severe part of her intestines were sticking out of her. No one had noticed and she hadn’t thought to mention that her organs had started leaking out. In fact, she seemed just as surprised as he was.”

49) Stupid Hernia Will Get You Every Time

It wasn’t the half-eaten face or missing eyeball that was bothering her.

From @420-BLAZIKEN

“This lady came in and literally half of her face had been basically eaten up by basal cell carcinoma. Eye and everything were just… gone. It was oozing blood. It had been this way for years, according to her. And the kicker – that’s not even the problem she came into the hospital for. She had come in for an umbilical hernia as big as a basketball that had been there for months, and she’d started vomiting over the past week so she finally went to the ED”

50) Pick Your Poison

From @GrumpyDietician:

“I have had several arguments with diabetics about Coke/Koolaid/Sweet Tea vs those made with artificial sugar. I tell them, look, don’t drink sugar. If you have to have something like that, use an artificial sweetener. “No way! That stuff is poison! It will kill me!” “Ma’am, your A1c is 14. Sugar is already killing you.””

51) Don’t Make Your Doctor Mad

No, it’s not still infected from a year ago.

@detdox was fed up with arguing:

“70 yo female tripped and fell 2 days ago. She came it with hip pain but reports after the fall her nose was bleeding – she had landed on her nose. About a year prior her dentist had messes up an infraorbital nerve block and caused some swelling in that region but that all was resolved. This old lady is now convinced her nosebleed after falling on her face is related to an “infection” from the dental issue a year ago. After multiple back-and-forth on the etiology of the nosebleed, she became the first patient I raised my voice and put down an authoritative “no, you are wrong, just stop it”.

52) Revenge Isn’t Worth It

Another tale from the trauma center, courtesy of @CalvinsStuffedTiger:

“Guy is trespassing in a junk yard and gets his arms and legs [messed] up by a pitbull. Have to clean out all these wounds. Flash forward to 3am that night I get called in to do a case. Apparently the guy left the hospital AMA to go get revenge on the dog, and the dog bit him in the face , breaking some facial bones and poking a few more holes in the process. Classic.”

53) Hippy Way, Or The Highway

The hippy daughter wanted her mother to receive the raw goat’s milk treatment.

@nellirn disagreed:

“Oh yes, we had an elderly woman with severe malnutrition and her hippie daughter wanted us to only giver her raw, unpasteurized goats milk. We did everything we could to convince her that her mother wasn’t getting enough nutrition. We even tried to allow her to bring in the raw, unpasteurized goats milk that we would supplement with the FDA approved formula we wanted to give her mother through the feeding tube. We finally had to become pretty blunt with the daughter and let her know that her mother was going to die due to malnutrition due to the daughter’s unique views on what was a proper diet for her mother.”

54) Pretty Sure He’s Deaf

Nurse @Rdubdanger told this story about a man who had just passed away in the hospital.

“The mans wife was in early stages of dementia and was upset and saying things in the room like “why did you leave me you bastard.” The age 40ish daughter pulled me aside, very concerned and asked me, “My mom is saying some very nasty things, do you think he is still able to hear her?”

The nurse had to compose herself and act like a pro before answering.

“‘In the sense that Jesus can hear you, maybe. In the sense that you can hear me, no.’ She immediately hugs me and says ‘Oh what a relief.’”


Source: Instagram/aluoppoula

55) That’s Not Where It Goes

@PostResidencyGoals had to explain the difference between a nasal spray and inhaler.

“I’ve got one. I was working at an Indian services clinic a few years ago. We prescribe a guy Flonase (nasal spray primarily for allergies) which starts a conversation: Guy: “will this nasal spray give me anxiety like the last one I had?” I start trying to find which drug he had been prescribed previously but he says: “I just threw it away in the trash out front, do you want me to go grab it?” He comes back a few minutes later with an albuterol inhaler. I’m perplexed. Dude tries his darndest to shove the opening (meant for your MOUTH) into his nostril, gives it a squirt and a snort.”

16) Went In The Wrong Hole

@Talina1, who used to be a receptionist at a Family Practice, shared this little gem:

“Not a Doctor or Nurse, but I used to be a receptionist at a Family Practice. We had a patient call regarding her yeast infection. She was given suppositories for her problem. She told me she took all three and still had the infection. I said “Took? Like you swallowed them?” Yep, that’s what she did. I let the Doctor handle that one.”

57) That’s Where The Baby Comes Out

Probably should have learned this before having the baby.

Nurse @GrumpyMare says:

“As a labor and delivery nurse. I have had to give the “3 hole speech” multiple times. I explain to the patient that I am going to insert a urinary catheter because they have an epidural and can’t void properly. Then they ask how is the baby going to come out. I want to bust out a diagram and show that there is a urethra, vagina and anus. Big arrow to the vagina where the baby comes out.”


Source: Instagram/pamietnik_poloznej

58) Spring Is In The Air

From @Ohh_Nurse:

“Had a patient come to the emergency department at 3am because she woke up 20 minutes prior with itchy/watery eyes and nasal congestion. It was spring. She literally came in for seasonal allergies. I asked what medications she tried to relieve the symptoms. She said “my husband told me to take some allergy medicine he has at home, but I didn’t take it.” So, you’re going to pay a hospital bill for the same antihistamines that you have at home?”


Source: Instagram/entgaspecialist

59) That’s Why It Unclogs Drains

Drano is powerful stuff. From @Smilesunshine57:

“The daughter is hysterically screaming, crying and literally pushing us towards her mother. Mother denies needing a wheelchair and we ask what we can help her with. Mother says “I accidentally douched with Drano”. Daughter passes out cold. Other staff help daughter and we take Mother in the back. Mother basically had massive corrosion in her whoo-ha. I know she went for emergency surgery and lost a lot of organs but I really don’t know what happened to her. We still talk about her and how it would be possible to “accidentally” douche with Drano.”

60) She Had Blue Fingers

But, she wasn’t having a heart attack. @MTL_Alex says:

“Had a patient present at the ER with “blue fingers”. She thought she was having some sort of heart attack. She had new jeans and the color stained her hands. Genius.”

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take



It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

We often forget that different species’ eyes work differently. For example, birds can see ultraviolet light, while humans can’t. Many parts of their life are much more colorful than ours.

Dad Brings Laughter With Tutorial On How To Put Baby To Sleep



He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”
Source: Instagram @howtodadnz

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing



The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

Source: Pexels

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

Source: Pexels

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

Source: Maison Saigon

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
