She says she's a bit nervous do that because she's still rather new. So the anesthetist (who is just as bad as the surgeon, if not worse) volunteers to do it. He dials and the surgeon says "tell me when you're speaking to him and I'll start shouting". He chuckles menacingly. The guy answers and he puts the call on speaker phone.
He tells him that nothing is working and that nobody knows how to fix it. The surgeon timeously shouts "I can't work under these conditions!". The anesthetist goes on to say that his rep has been reduced to tears.
"I knew I should have come myself" he says, "I knew she couldn't handle it!"
The theatre explodes with laughter and he realises he's been had. He says something about the surgeon always trying to unnerve him. We all laugh.
Everyone except his rep that is ;)
