Hi gang, been for a blood test at GP`s today. Now they know me well…been a patient there for 26 years, plus been a wheelie user for 12.
So I arrive, get called in and wait at the end of the required corridor, wondering
did the information notice say room 7 or room 8? So I knocked on the nearest door, as smack in front of me was an empty bookcase…nicely filling a space, but narrowing the area I was going through.
A nurse appeared from a small room, with an even smaller door (Alice in Wonderland comes to mind) and recognises me and says
Oh Ive just looked at your notes. You can
t get into this room, can you? Duh! Got stuck in that doorway last time.
So I ask if we can use another room, as we did before. I was told no, this is the blood room! So then she asks me what I want to do…??? did she mean did I want the bookcase moving, did I want the door widening,did I want a cup of tea, or did I want to fly to the moon! I know I `m being sarky now!
But heavens to Betsy! They KNOW me, they
ve seen me get stuck in that chuffin doorway.
Next she asks me if I wouldnt mind having my blood taken in the corridor and she
d put a screen around me! Ha, thats a laff…there`s hardly room for me, my wheelie, and the empty bookcase…let alone a screen!
I give in…I tell her to just take the blood where we were.
All this and there is a dirty big notice in reception, asking if patients are satisfied with the service at the GP
s. Shall I fill a form in? Or can I actually be chuffin bovvered?
Have a nice afternoon guys.
