Funny read

They should pin this on the noticeboard at Royal London

A&E has gotta be THE WORST job in the world. I'd rather be a cleaner in a gay sauna

oba

shit, this lady needs a shag

good read

This made my day suck less.

British junkies look like American middle-aged dads.

funky munky

That guy aint a junkie, he's just drunk off his arse.

You know those days in your western utopia where you drink tea all day and bitch because your fav X factor singer didnt get in and Chantelle isnt dressing ' No where as good as she should' for fucks sakes think of this woman and what she has to go through.

Yes it can be shitty waiting three to four hours for a look see but taking it out on her is like Woody Allen dating someone his own age and comlaining that he's not getting any.
Write a book and if you are going to be angry at anyone be at yourself for voting in a government who constantly cuts HNS funding

Great article. This is what Vice is all about, funny articles about things most people would never know about. Bravo

This is a very well observed article. The London A&E is a horrible place to work. I think the receptionist is very honest in her view of the types of people that come in for treatment. I hope they are paying her a decent salary to put up with that crap.

why is vice shit?

better than the shite that has been up lately. get new writers.

give this lady a job at vice

The worsts hospitals are the free ones. Try to go with a broken arm in any hospital in Montreal,QC, Canada. You will wait minimum 8 hours.

grindie

so thats what vice is all about

Dear Receptionist,

I like the tone of your angst poem. It's funny, but not so far off that I know its just some 35 year-old skateboarder drunk vice-staffer that gets to party with models in Milan. In other words, let's get married. I'm imagining you as Dawn, or better, can I call you Dawn? Will you yell at me and say stuff in rhyme slang. Also I need a place to stay on your side of the pond.

daaaaaaaaaaamn straight. my mum was a nurse and FUCK the stories she tells would straighten your pubes three times over.

dr b

i'm an orthopedics resident in montreal...you wait FOREVER here...no one even complains anymore...once you're admitted you get a bed in a hallway if you're lucky...charge 5$ to get into the ER and all the losers will stay home and blow their nose themselves.

amy

did it bother anyone else that eli used the words mum, fuck, and pubes all in the same sentence? gave me the heebee geebees!

Melinda Mao

hahaha YEH you haven't seen the ones in Down Under!! Opps i did all that shit last time i went to the hospital with my friend (the one who sprang his ankle), really wish i could apologise to the receptionist now :X

Lolly

I read this secretly at my job where internet is a no-no.
Good stuff.

I was working in A&E a few weeks ago and we had a 34 year old bloke come in with a sore arm. We asked him how long he'd had this 'illness' and he did a few mental calculations before replying "oh, since I was born".

I AM A RECEPTIONIST IN A LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA HOSPITAL, AND READING YOUR COLUMN WAS MY EVERYDAY THOUGHTS PUT INTO WORDS FROM ACROSS THE WORLD. "THANK YOU!!!"
