What is the point...

...of getting medical advice if you're not planning to follow it?

You have an infection, doctor gives antibiotics, you don't take the antibiotics, and your infection doesn't get better. What a surprise.

And so you trundle back to the doctor and tell her that the infection is now worse, then you tell her that you spent the last three days antibiotic-free. Did you actually think that you would get better just by watching the antibiotics? Antibiotics are not gold bars, okay? There's no need to hoard them or start a collection and I doubt they are worth anything on the black market.

So you come back to the doctor and demand treatment. What do you think the doctor is going to give you now for your infection?

A scolding, that's what. I may be small, but I am fierce.

If this was a Japanese Anime, you would have been called a 'baka' and then smacked on the head with a gong.

If this was a Monty Python sketch, you would have been crushed by a 200 tonne weight and French people would have farted in your general direction.

If this was the Muppet show, you would have been slapped with a herring and forced to tap dance.

But it's just an A&E department. All you did was get a stern look and some sharp words. I hope I made you feel like a complete waste of time. Because that is what you are.

tym: :) It was really hard because this lady had also come in by ambulance which was totally inappropriate. So I had to give her a real talking to. *sigh*

Ha ha ha...I have just found your entertaining blog from a link on AngryDoc.

Love the Pythonesque reference.

Did you tell the patient they smelt of Elderberries ?
