"Hopefully you have an interesting night on call."
"Why would you say such a horrible thing to me ಠ_ಠ"
"ಠ_ಠ"

I think I might do poorly on this rotation.

Wait, who said what? You wished them an interesting night on call? Were they serious when they responded? I guess now you have to use neutral words like "good" call....but that's a pretty lame preceptor if they get that easily offended.

Haha...maybe a simple "thanks" would have sufficed in this situation ;)

Why wouldn't you want an interesting night on call? You would prefer to sleep only and get no experience? I think what he was offering was a compliment, a legitimate hope that you would do good work, learn something, and be involved.

I probably would have said thanks...

It's really not clear here who said what.

Er, it'd probably be more obvious if you indicated who said what...
