Things I learned at the VA hospital the last five days:
DON'T vent announcements over the PA in your waiting room requesting all male patients to STD clinic because one of the nurses turned up positive.
DON'T start venting when the doctor is using the sigmoidoscope in your colon -- OUCH!
DO use distant voice in line at the canteen selecting lunch. People react funny when the beef tells them to eat more chicken...
DO have the ultrasound machine complain when the technician starts his procedure -- took me more than an hour to get out of there -- the tech kept calling in other techs (once he caught on) and asked them to double check his equipment.
Once they find out you're a vent or a magician, you're done for... they'll keep you at it for hours.If it weren't for the three surgeries (scheduled for Sept and Oct) it would have been a fun time.
