I'd like to sink into the floor, please

You know what's embarrassing? Getting words mixed up when talking to someone.

You know what's even more embarrassing? Getting words mixed up when talking to someone important.

You know what's mortifying? Getting words mixed up when you're overheading someone important on the Emergency Dept Intercom system.

Yup. I did that tonight.

"Can I have a consult to the doc for a Priority 1 radio, please?"

True story.

Hahaha, that wasn't just two words switched around that was a whole phrase. Are you low on sleep too?

Everybody misspeaks. Like the intern who was presenting to the medical team, and forgot to mention the patient's liver transplant.
