This is a public service announcement. You don't have to go to the ED if you have the flu. I just finished 4 of 5 days, and not a single day at any time were there less than 20-30 patients in the waiting room with cold and flu symptoms. Last time I checked, Wal-Mart has two entire rows of medicines that may or may not work as well as meds I may or may not prescribe for your self limited illness. Motrin, fluids and chicken soup go a long way. Yes, you feel bad, but your chances of feeling bad would have been less if you would have taken 10 minutes of your precious free time to get a FREE flu shot ( they were given free at several locations, or at some for $10). You are clogging the ED making me see sick patients in the hall ways with very little privacy. I actually had a 2 pack per day smoker tell me she couldn't afford generic Robitussin, and that she wasn't "in the mood for joking" when I told her she could hold off smoking just one pack and get some meds. POS waste of carbon. And another thing, don't just "hitch a ride" to the ED because your cousin is going. You are also clogging the ED. Wait times this past week and weekend have been many hours, and God forbid a really sick person gets lost in the fray of all this bull shit. Good for 911 getting out. And you jerk offs who come in 2-3 days after an MVA to get "checked out", after consulting an attorney (Johnny "beefcake" Edwards)-you suck cock. You waste my time and suck my soul. I hope you catch the flu from the others in the waiting room while you wait. Take some motrin at home and be glad you didn't really get hurt in your "accident".
I could go on but I'm too tired, so off the the litter box, and good lick cleaning, cough up a furball, and off to bed.
