What's the funniest/stupidest mistake you've ever made in med?

Hi runningdream!

Here’s one I’m known for in my med school class:

Person whispers to me: Hey uh…this is a stupid question but…which direction is the stethoscope suppose to be when I put it on?

Me: Oh, this way!

Person: I thought it was the other way?

Me: I’m pretty sure it’s this way.

Physician: Okay, everyone put on your stethoscopes. You (points at me), yours is on backwards.

Me: FUCK

(cricket noises commence)

Swearing loudly in front of a professor/physician/individual of authority= classic me-mistake
