Working in medical insurance we have to ask people about their symptoms, what treatment they're having and with which doctor or hospital. My favourite conversation was:

- My GP's referred me for an ultrasound scan
- That's fine - where will the scan be taking place?
- My Testicles. (long pause) errrm... London Bridge Hospital.

Others I've heard about include:
- My wife's been referred to a gynaecologist
- What are her symptoms?
- She has a lump on her lobelia

And the famous call when someone got very angry that we wouldn't fund an ultrasound scan for his dog "I've got my policy document here and it clearly states you cover PET scans!"

I honestly heard so many stupidities which sadly I haven't put them all down on paper. But some I still remember.

-Communism/socialism is utopia
-Every scene in a movie with bare chests and butts is fanservicing.
-Covid is no worse than flu.
-This I heard once (or read in newspaper, I can't remember) about Brexit. One gentleman said, to paraphrase:"We won't the war. We won ww1, we won ww2. We don't need those bloody Germans telling us what to do. We won the war.
-Trump advising people to drink bleach.
-When I said that it's bad to lead the country like a businessman, which Trump does. Someone replied:"And that's why he was a good president. He didn't run the country like politicians".
-Okay, this is fairly subjective, but "Morrison's Batman run is the best."  :)
-Bergman's movies are characters all shouting at each other.

You may quote me on that.
