My dearest friend, @Pyoor, happens to work in the same hospital as I am in. We’ve joked for the past few days that the medical and clinical staff have a predilection for sarcasm.
So, after being told that 1) I can’t drive yet and 2) I may not go home yet, my wonderful cardiologist told me, with a glint in his eye, that you will be pushed hard in my stress test.
I’m done with this hospital thing. Please send me home.
As I explained yesterday, basic sarcasm is part of the induction programme. Of course, a natural predisposition to sarcasm is vital to work in the NHS.
Bear in mind, my induction programme opened with a photograph of the hospital and the phrase “Welcome to East Germany”
