Had an appointment to see the nurse, so headed all the way down to the health center.
My Blood Pressure hasn't been officially checked for a while, so they needed a new reading.
"Umm..." Went the nurse, whose job it is to take readings like this. "I can't seem to get a reading."
She checked my pulse and did the usual "is your balance still off?" stuff, but the lack of Blood Pressure reading (the only reason I went down there) was somewhat disturbing.
She called for the receptionist, and asked him to find out if Dr SuchandSuch had an opening. "In about 2 hours" came the reply. So home we trundled, had a brew, and then set off again.
"It's me again.." I said to the receptionist.
Ten minutes later, we went to see this new doctor that I'd never met before. He looked at me, somewhat breathless after having had to come all the way down TWICE, and carried the demeanour of someone who assumed I was just a lazy useless unhealthy fucktard. He took my blood pressure which was "perfectly normal", and seemed genuinely baffled as to why I was even there.
We left about five minutes later, and headed home, leaving a confused doctor who I can only hope then decided to read a small part of my medical history!! .. Either that or he'll just continue to assume I'm a lazy fucker.
I can live with that!!
