One night at work with Teh Boyz

(Teh Boyz are a group of junior MLTs between 25-27 who do and say the oddest things. They are very amusing.)



My aunt was admitted to my hospital for dengue last Monday, so we had to take her blood to check her platelet count. During a night call, usually the more junior MLT will go to the wards, so my partner Ko would go.

Me: So if you head to her room, be gentle.
Ko: ...Maybe you should go instead?
Me: Go.

So he comes back from the ward and for some reason thought my aunt was in the North Tower, so when he went into her room to take her blood,

Aunt: Do you know my niece by any chance? She works in the lab-
Ko: -IT IS YOU, YOU ARE HER AUNT O_O

At that moment, he regretted not entering and dramatically flipping his K-pop boy band hair.

Ko: I will go again tomorrow to take her blood, flip my hair dramatically, and become part of your FAMILY.
Me: GET OUT OF MY FAMILY
Ko: Btw when I left, I bumped into a girl who went into her room. She was HOT.
Me: That 'hot girl' is my COUSIN.
Ko: How old is she?
Me: 2 years younger than me.
Ko: *starts counting on his fingers*
Me:
Me: She's 30.

At this point, another boy (WL) pops in.

Ko: *to WL* Her cousin is 30!
WL: *to me* Does that mean you're 32?!
Me: ....I thought this was public knowledge?
WL: I thought you were 39!
Me: GO JUMP IN FRONT OF A SPEEDING BUS
WL: WAIT NO I SAID 29
Ko: No, you definitely said 39
WL: Is your aunt rich and single and looking for a gigolo?! (the major life ambition of a cytology screener)
Me: No, go jump in front of a speeding bus.

Back to Ko.

Me: Anyway my cousin's getting married next year.
Ko: I can still stop the wedding!
Me: It's in Australia.
Ko:
Ko: OK CAN

We then laugh imagining the rest of the lab saying, "Hey um Ko took leave on the same dates as you saying he's going to Australia, are the two of you dating or something?"

Later Muin comes up from ER bringing samples.

Muin: YOU DIDN'T LIKE MY STATUS
Me: WHAT STATUS
Muin: Oh you haven't been checking FB ok then

Turns out it was a selfie of him flexing his muscles in the surau, because that's what new phones are for.

Later my dad says, "You should tell your aunt what your colleague said!"

Me: Aunty G, my colleague says cousin is hawt and wants to stop her wedding.
Aunt: Tell him the dates are fixed.

I think she missed the joke.

The cut didn't work, but giggling like mad anyway.
