At the outpatient surgery center where I work, the anesthesiologist chats with patients before their operations to help them relax.
One day, he thought he recognized a woman as a coworker from the VA hospital where he had trained.
When the patient confirmed that his hunch was correct, the anesthesiologist said, “So tell me, is the food there still as bad as it used to be?”

Our home number is very close to one at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, and we often get calls meant for them. Like this one … Caller: This is [military rank and name]. I’m at the St. Louis airport. When is someone going to pick me up? Me: I’m sorry, you have the wrong number. Caller: Isn’t this [phone number]?
Me: Close, but we’re hundreds of miles away from the airport. Caller: (after a pause) So you don’t know who’s going to pick me up? —Notalwaysright.com Got a funny story about the military or your military family? It could be worth $$$. For details, see page 124 or go to rd.com/submit.
