Overheard at triage:
Distraught Father: My son has a severe headache!
Triage Nurse: When did the headache start?
D.F.: About a half hour ago.
Triage Nurse: Did he bang his head?
D.F.: He drank orange juice.
Triage Nurse: What?
D.F.: It was really cold.
Triage Nurse: So let me review: your son drank some cold orange juice and got a headache. Is that right?
Triage Nurse: And you never got a headache from eating ice cream too fast? [To son] Do you still have a headache?
Triage Nurse: [as she scores patient a CTAS 5] Uhuh.
D.F.: [defensively] Well, he had a headache!
Father was literally laughed out of the department, no doubt engendering years of therapy for his poor son.
