Some of the most hilarious travel anecdotes happen because of language mix-ups and misunderstandings. However, it’s safe to say that this is NOT the case when they happen at a hospital (because, you know, a minor misunderstanding could lead to something big), and this nurse in a Chinese hospital perfectly understands that.

The story was shared on Reddit by user WaspDog, and it went absolutely viral. The context of the message is very clear: the patient is having surgery tomorrow, so they can’t have any food or water after 10 PM. People on Reddit, of course, had many, many other things in mind, as you will see below!
