In the last couple of weeks, I had spent like 5-6 times at the doctor’s waiting room. His clinic is sandwiched between the dermatologist and the ophthalmologists (two of them).
Therefore, I was stucked in between screaming babies, toddlers, squeaky shoes and stark reminders of old age. Those who see the ophtalmologists are usually old people needing cataract surgeries whilst those who see the dermatologist are suspected to contract venereal diseases due to finding too many pros or those vain, over the edge women who want to find their fountain of youth. (BTW, the skin doctor is our rocket leader’s Mr. Lim daughter-in-law, very nice doctor. Serious. See her if you have acnes, allergies, dandruffs, hair loss etc.)
They have wi-fi there and if I brought my laptop along, I can actually blog from there. However, my toddler insisted to be carried all the time so I didn’t resort to that crazy idea because I have only two hands. So, what else can I do but to sit there and observe people?
[tag]Rant[/tag] number one
Freaking, annoying, psycho ringtones. They are classified as below:
William Tell, Rawhide or any cowboy [tag]ringtones[/tag] – Old, old aunties and old, old uncles love them.
Christmas and Chinese New Year songs – -ditto- but because they don’t know how to change it and poor old grandpas and grandmas have no grandkids who cared enough to provide them Teresa Teng’s Moon song.
Mawi songs – I don’t have to tell you who.
and my current #1 dislike – People who plays music with their stupid handphone like only they can afford a stupid handphone with stupid musics. I feel like shoving the handphone down their throat right out of their arse. Please lah, this is a hospital and out here in the bunch of crowds, some of these poor people are either dying of terminal diseases or facing the end of their life. So, for goodness sake, keep those crappy musics and songs to yourself, ok?
Rant number two
Medical tourists – You know that Penang is famous for breast-augmentation, liposuction, nip tucks followed by a holiday. So, we have lots and lots of sick [tag]tourists[/tag] who pull their trolley luggage all around the hospital like the hospital is some resort hotel. Not to mention those ‘waduh, bibik darrrrriii mana…?’ chat loudly amongst themselves like you are in Medan. Bugger these people are damn rich, wei. Look at their jewelleries, wuah…..
Rant number three
Over protective parents. The other day, got one little boy accidentally tripped a little girl over. The girl fell but what’s the big deal right? But nooooo..the father of the girl was so furious like his daughter got injured like that. After that he spent the next 20 minutes checking his daughter, here pain? there pain? like she had fell from a 10-storey building. Niamah, don’t spoil your kid like that la. A little fall is not going to hurt. Your over protectiveness is. What if next time she fell when you are not around?
Rant number four
Stupid parents who give negative inputs – “No, you cannot buy a drink. You already spent so much money in medical fees.” Doh, your kid is thirsty because he is sick lah.
“If you don’t stop whining, later I go in and ask the doctor to inject you.” No wonder your kid is fearful of doctors.
“You still don’t want to get up from the floor? Never mind, I take you home now, no need to see doctor. Let your sick until pain die (thnia see in Hokkien).” Scaring your kid that a little illness can kill.
Got a lot more rants but I shall stop here or else you readers cannot decide which rant to join in. And to those pat-phors who are going to say, “Oh, look at that horrijible 5xmom, she is bitching about poor sick people in the hospital.” Wei, listen here. I am doing a service to humankind ok? I one person rant and let the other people just nod-nod their heads. That way, I tanggung the tanggung jawab and you people are absolve from the sins of bad mouthing. See? I so good what?
