When my middle child was ten years old, I had to take him to the emergency room because his fever was too high and his asthma was acting up.
They called us back and the nurse asked him for his birthdate. He gave it to her. Then she asked him how old he was?
He looked at her like she had lost her mind and asked, “Can’t you do the MATH???”
I was slightly embarrassed and told him to “Be nice.”
When she left the room, he looked at me with a puzzled expression and asked, “Mom, can’t she do the math?”
It does make you wonder why she asked him both questions.
