Hospital - AGAIN
Being the dutiful neighbour I pootled up to the hospital to keep him from the doors of boredom during the wait and then sat waiting for him to return from the theatre. I have a couple of top tips for anyone in a similar position - a couple of don'ts:
1. don't arrive on your motorbike, it will be nigh on impossible to transport your patient home
2. don't spend the entire duration of the operation wondering about the morality of eating the patients banana that he has saved for the post-op munchies. It IS immoral, and the time would be better spent going home to get the car.
3. When you give someone a lesson on how to make the arm chair into a magic recliner, Don't stand there gawping as the chair starts to put them in a most compromising position, point out that they are pressing the wrong button.
