Heard over the airwaves

"Medic xyz to 123 Smith St, Anytown for a 19 year old female who.. (pause) states she weighed herself and the scale says she weighs 47lbs. She states she is supposed to weigh 103lbs."

The new medic sitting beside me laughed. "That is exactly the kilogram to pounds conversion."

The ditz had her scale set on kg instead of lbs. And called an ambulance because she apparently doesn't know what 103lbs vs. 47 lbs. looks like in the mirror.
