Hospital Fun

We did our hospital tour last Sunday, so Mr. BUB would know where to take me when little Skeeter decides to make her great escape.  Or grand entrance, depends on how you see it.  I guess this could be the pregnancy edition of potato/pot-ah-to.

There were about 30 people in our group, and most of them were like us- stayed quiet and kept to ourselves.  I'd already read the information packet twice, so I didn't have any questions during the tour.

But a couple people stood out...

The Cutesy Bickering Couple
Okay, I use the word 'cutesy' only because it's what they were trying for.  Not what they achieved.  They interrupted at every opportunity.

For example:
Tour Guide: We don't have specific visiting hours, but if it's the middle of the night, your guests obviously need to be quiet.
Wife:  Well, that means your family can't come!
Husband:  What are you trying to say about my family?!
Both:  {Laughing and looking around the group for a response.}
Group:  {Crickets}

Later on, Mr. BUB and I were stuck next to the couple while walking down the hallway.
Wife:  Your daughter is enormous.
Husband:  Don't talk about my child like that!
Wife:  YOUR child?!  What am I?
Husband:  A means to an end.
{The last two lines are repeated, looking for a reaction from us.}

Mr. BUB and I then had a conversation with our looks:
Me:  Do you think if I fake my water breaking, they'll shut up?
Mr. BUB:  Anything to make them be quiet.

The Ringtone Couple
This was actually my favorite couple.  We were sitting in a labor and delivery room, while the tour guide discussed the features of the room and how it will contribute to a peaceful delivery.  In the middle of the speech, the husband's cell phone goes off.  I wish I could tell you what song it was, but they don't play the song on our local country music station.  All I know is the lyrics were BAD.  

Somehow, both Mr. BUB and I managed to keep a straight face when this happened.  But when we were leaving, I looked at him and said "I really really want you to play ghetto rap during my delivery.  Please?"  And then, Mr. BUB rapped the lyrics and we laughed uncontrollably.

Hahahaha gotta love "that" couple! When people are annoying or try to be funny, Greg always responds with a big "OH!" it's hilarious

Katie said...

Good grief, why does there always have to be a 'comedian' in the group?! So annoying!

Mateya said...

Haha! You gotta love those people that say something and then look around at everyone else to see their response. Ridiculous!

Nichole said...

ahahaha, still sounds like a Friends episode to me! I feel bad for the first couples' future baby...Oh, man

Rebekah said...

Haha some people just need to not talk! You would think that when they say those things and are met with silence they would just stop!

Shelley said...

I never ended up going to that walk through at the hospital haha. I figured she would get here one way or another!

too funny, we had a couple like that in our tour too - they were just making wisecracks and jokes every two minutes... so annoying!

Amanda said...

Hysterical. Hopefully they won't deliver when you guys deliver... I can't only imagine what that would be like!

That sounds endlessly entertaining :) I love how you two didn't pander to the couple looking for laughs lol!

What is with people like the cutesy couple? Do they practice these routines at home? I wonder how many hours that would take. It scares me that people like that are procreating and pray that they don't live in your school district. Imagine the offspring. Yikes.

Myra said...

Oh goodness! Some people really should be told that less is more at certain times :)

You are such a pretty to-be-mama!

Jules said...

Hm. I didn't know you should do a hospital tour so you know where to go when the time comes. What a great idea.

The bickering couple made me cringe...but not as bad as a father to me made me cringe in our class. The instructor was talking about how when your water broke it did not smell like urine and this one dude said "so how do I know, do I smell her panties?" Yes he said that....YES HE DID. I felt very sad for his wife. Some people...

Haha! It sounds like it was an entertaining visit.
