It’s one of those mornings when you just know that you’ve got a shitty day ahead of you. And Anger keeps building up like Lego hanging off your Iman and things.
I decided to wear a particular shoe I haven’t worn for a long time. I have quite forgotten why until I reached work and discovered that the soles were coming off. At the same time I was looking for my stethoscope which I kind of like remember vaguely is located at a particular ward.
“Hi.. may I know if my steth is still there”
“no.. its not here. all the ones here are in black” and this answering without a freaking mini effort to go and have a look. until i used the ultimatum of ‘”hey, I was there bla bla la.. please go check”
and thats when the endearing response came through, ” ohhhh.. a ah lah.. “
Afterwards, despite not having a huge load of patients coming through the door – my patience was tested several times and naturally I had to end my shift with a bang. My loudest voice ringing through the hallway shrieking loosely translated as
” get that bloody PV bleed inside!!”
This is a very angry woman typing.
