Twisted Ankle Saga – Continues…

ist2_1756150_broken_leg.jpg
Ok. So i told you previously that i twisted my ankle badly on new year’s…Here is the story which took place two days ago.
When I first went to “Mustashfa Mbarak” – Mubarak Hospital – everything was fine and they put “half a cast” for my ankle. They told me that one week later, i should report back to “Mustashfa il Razy” – Al Razi Hospital -. Anyways, i went two days ago to Al Razi (i was skipping school to do that) to check my ankle. The place was extremely crowded. I arrived there around 8:30am. There were only 18 people before me in line to see the doctor (supposedly he IS a doctor). I waited for what seemed to be five hours (not that i wasn’t happy i’m skipping school :P). Then, i got real angry and decided to knock on the door and see what’s going on. When i went in, there were a bunch of people with different injuries. I asked the “doctor” why are the numbers not changing…and he said they are. I told him that its been 45 minutes and the number hasn’t changed. And he told me this: “tha numbar iz muuving but da sign out no work…but tha numbar is moving inside.” Translation: HE IS ONE HELL OF AN IDIOT! Real translation: what was going on was that he was changing the numbers from inside, and the line was moving, but the digital sign outside doesn’t work…and he KNOWS it doesn’t work!! I mean, how the hell are we going to know the line is moving. La2 oo ib kil burood igool inna he is pressing the button to change the numbers inside!!! YA3NI SH-HAL SA6LA??!!
Anyhow, I had my way screaming at him…and he checked my ankle like this:
“Okk…letme seeeee tha x-ray”
– i handed him the x-ray –
“okk…good good” (in his weird indian accent….it wasn’t just indian!) … “Evereeeeeting iz fine here…let tha sister take off da cast.
– i gave him my trademark WTF look – “They sent me all the way from Mubarak one week later to take off the cast!! (it wasn’t a very hard cast….anyone can take it off at home).
So again, i had my way screaming and shouting at him in a civilized manner of course (sarcasm).
Believe me, ay a7ad ib mokani binarfiz ib 6aree8a it5ali i9eer maynoon.

    You can’t be blamed because of the lack of process and the way they are treating people in the hospitals! Very sad!
