"Kindly state your name." The nurse's voice was polite, but quiet.
"I'm sorry, I can't hear you, my hearing's bad."
Being mostly deaf was quite frustrating for our patient.


"Please tell me your name and date of berth."
"Pardon, but you really must speak up.."

"Excuse me, are you still there, or did I lose connection," our patient yels over the phone.
Silence again greets our patient and they check to be sure the phone is still on.

"Really, you must speak up. I am half deaf, and wont hear a thing if you mummble," our patient exclaims.




After another long pause our patient gives up and turns of the phone.
What a waste of time.. now our patient will just have to go there in person.




After arriving at the hospital our patient is finally seen by their physician.

Our patient will be fine. It's just another case of being afected by a lack of ______.
They really should have known better. This isn't the first time its come up.

Now to get back home for some lunch. They were going to make their favorite food.
By now you should know what it is our patient enjoys consuming, but do you know what was wrong with them?

You'll need to see this through to the end to see why they were all mixed up.

    $\begingroup$ @JesseAmano Because the first letters of each quote spells rot13(xvccre) or just because it seems unrelated? $\endgroup$ – Barker Apr 18 at 21:29
