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!"
