Weirdness in the Birth Center

As you may (or may not) know, I work in the Family Birth Center of our local hospital. I check-in all the ladies coming in for tests, to be checked out or to have their babies. Usually its a pretty fun job. I tend to have a lot of stories about extremely annoying or funny women and their families who come in to have a baby.
Usually I don't share them on here too much because I don't want to be
accused of some kind of HIPPA law violation or something.
But this was a first - and definitely weird scenario that happened today.
I'm sitting at my desk - working on my computer.
A very well-dressed (like black suit) young man comes up to me.
Him: "Hello - I'm here from (insert name) funeral services to pick up --- ----."
Me (looking through the names on my screen and seeing no such name and then it dawning on me that he's asking about A BODY): "WHAT? From the Birth Center?
Him: "Uh, they say go to morgue, but I not know where that is."
Me: "The morgue is in the basement - that way"

I point him in the correct direction
(not that even I know exactly where the morgue is).
You're going to come to the Family Birth Center looking for the morgue????
His english wasn't really great, so many he just got turned around - but seriously??
Weird, I tell you, weird. Freaked me out a tiny bit actually.
You just never know what's going to happen here....
