Day Nurse: Where is the nursing assistant? Can you have them answer Whoever’s call light that is?

Night Nurse: Where is the doctor for room 3. Whoever isn’t calling it’s Whenever in 4.

Day Nurse: So Whoever isn’t calling, Whenever needs something.

Night Nurse: That’s who’s call light it is.

Day Nurse: I though you just said Who is in room 1? But the call light for 4 is going off…
