English is hard bruh. There’s little nuances which make communicating in it really difficult.

The following incidents took place at a hospital which boasts of 12987642 branches abroad and this branch having international standards of everything.

*AT HOSPITAL INFORMATION DESK*

 Kirin: Hi. I’m looking for a podiatrist. can you please tell me where to go?

Info Person: YES MA’AM. please go straight and take a left PEDIATRICS will be on your right.

Kirin: er…. No. I don’t want to go to pediatrics. I want to go to a PODIATRIST.

Info Dude: YES MA’AM. PEDIATRICS.

Kirin: ok. nvm. Thank you. now could you tell me where the orthopedics department is?

Info guy: YES MA’AM. Straight and Left.

 

*AT ORTHOPAEDIC DEPARTMENT*

Kirin: Hi. Could you tell me which doctor is free for a consultation?

Receptionist: Yes, what is problem?
Kirin:  My feet get really sore after standing long periods of time so I just want to get that checked out.
Receptionist: Please go to first floor.
Kirin: er… why?
Receptionist: Your feet sores.
Kirin: NO. My feet don’t HAVE sores. My feet GET sore.

*repeat above conversation again*

Receptionist: Yes. Feet sores. first floor.
Kirin:  but my issue is related to ORTHOPEDICS. This is the orthopaedics department right?

Receptionist *looks at other receptionist – looks back at me blankly*
Other receptionist: ma’am what is the issue?
Kirin: I want to see a doctor because my feet are sore from lots of standing. THIS IS A BONE RELATED ISSUE.

Other receptionist: *stares blankly*

KIRIN: *LOOSES SHIT* MERE PAYRE PE PHODE NAHI HAI. MERE PAYRE LAMBI SAMAY KHADE HONE PAR DUKHTE HAI. Aap mujhe bata rahein ho ki yeh orthopaedic maamla nahin hai?

translation: I DON’T HAVE FOOT SORES. MY FEET HURT AFTER STANDING LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND HAVE BEEN HURTING FOR A WHILE. ARE YOU TELLING ME that that is NOT a matter for an orthopaedic doctor??????

Receptionists “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH.”

MORAL OF THE STORY:
If at first you don’t succeed, SWITCH LANGUAGES. (If you don’t know the local language, you will get treated for foot sores even if you have none.)
