The Hilarious Interpretations Of A Note Left By A Nurse Who Couldn’t Speak English Will Leave You Speechless

Language barriers are something that are real and can lead to some complex situations as well as some hilarious ones. Today, we have a post that went viral on the internet about an international student who was hospitalized in China. While there, she was under the care of a nurse who couldn’t speak English.

The nurse had to convey the message that the student had surgery at 8:00 the next morning and shouldn’t have any food or water after 10 p.m. Unfortunately, the way the nurse wrote down the note the best way she could with the use of some symbols was hilarious as you will see.

This interpretation is quite hilarious as the person posting this says the nurse wanted to say that if the patient doesn’t eat and wash the cup tonight, he will die tomorrow. This is funny as it wasn’t what it actually means and could be one of the real interpretations that the patient could’ve thought of.

If the patient thought the same way as this poster then he may have been scared beyond anything. The poster interprets the note by saying tonight after 10 pm there will be no eating or drinking and tomorrow after 8 am the patient will be murdered. This is one scary interpretation of the note but with the drawing of a knife on it, we don’t blame them.

This is by far the worst and most straight forward interpretation of the note. Tonight is your last meal, inmate. Tomorrow you will be executed. This is just scary and calling the patient ‘inmate’ just builds up the scary factor. Seeing the word ‘executed’ only makes things worse. We cannot imagine how the patient would’ve felt if he got this note instead of the one he got.

This user points out the obvious, the knife in the note. When there is a language barrier between people why would you draw knife which is so lifelike and use a red pen to draw blood? This makes the note even more terrifying. Imagine you wake up in a hospital with a note that has a knife with blood on it, how would you feel?

This is another good point as to why the nurse should’ve thought once before drawing a knife. If she wanted to send a message that the patient had an operation or was going under the knife she could’ve just drawn a scalpel and not a real-life knife. Had she drawn a scalpel or something else this would’ve been a better message!
