“Hi I accidentally impaled my heart with a spear.”
“Okay sir, stop hassling me. Please sit over there in the waiting area for 3 hours.”
@theduuuude, 3 hours? Where is this blazing fast medical facility located so I can move there?
I mean they kinda have to be that way because the people coming into hospitals are severely injured or ill and that tends to make people aggressive and not think as logically. You need someone stern to make you sit down and cooperate when the hospital is full of other cranky people waiting to be fixed
That’s the distracted boyfriend and girlfriend.
This is how they met.
Or after he left her. I think it works either way.
Thats the models from the meme of the guy checking out the other woman
I work IT at a hospital. The only people who aren't super nice are some doctors and charge nurses. The rest are always very polite
They always put senior citizens up front that are so happy to help you that they will literary walk to the other end of the hospital with you to make sure you are in the correct doctors office.
@seeUpee, Right? That’s how almost every major hospital near me is. I think they do that because it’s the only way to alleviate their liability with confidentiality at the information desk. Employing volunteers for the task.
Me: Hi, I’m looking for this person, could you tell me what room they’re in?
Hospital staff: Sir, unless you have their social security number, house key, and can tell me who their grandmother lost her virginity to, I can neither confirm nor deny that person’s mere existence, and I’m about to call security to come tase your ass.
Hospital volunteer: Why sure!! He’s in room 209. Looks like he came in at 1:14 yesterday afternoon with a bad case of diarrhea. Just shidding all over himself like an uneven chocolate fountain. Would you like me to tell you how big his penis is?
@Berntley, I went to visit my aunt when she was in hospital, but it was a private one run by HCA (I’m in the UK) so there was no A&E etc - just people booked in for surgery. The receptionist looked like a model, and offered me a wine list before directing me to her suite (room service brought the wine up). God damn I wish I could afford her health insurance!
@Nellybert , Umm, holy balls, that sounds ridiculous. I work in healthcare for underprivileged individuals, so I’m more used to “here’s your forms. Fill these out and the doctor will see you in a couple hours to recommend doing nothing and following up in three months”
@Nellybert , you get the same treatment in the US if you have great insurance. If you don't have any you sit for hours in the ER waiting area, an IV, and booted as soon as they deem you "healthy"
@Berntley, I almost scrolled past this comment like some kind of idiot
@Hamilton Porter, you honor me
@Berntley, well... how big was his penis?
@an idiot, Almost as big as the section of colon they had to remove.
@an idiot, I mean at this point they have my curiosity.
