    "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.

    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...

    The entire conversation was actually just the preceptor speaking to himself...

    Thanks for bumping it though! (the irony of which I hope is not lost)
