Working in the ambulant nursing services is not good for my already rather less existent patience.
This old (to my mind mental) lady opens the door and starts to bitch:
"Well, you are very, very late. What did you do? You two lazies!"
I looked at her and wished that looks could kill and said: "Why? Are you going out tonight later?"
but the nurse I was with warned me with a look.
Ok, I understand, don't be rude, you have act like a professional..
Seriously: These people are sitting on their couch the whole fucking day, watching TV, waiting for the next meal and if we arrive at their houses, totally stressed, after running up 4 storeys,
they act like they have a bursting schedule and every minute we are late costs them thousands of Euros.
Oh by the way: We were caught by a speed camera yesterday because the nurse was so stressed because she was late that she was driving 90 where only 50km/h were allowed.
The hospital made an hater of the elderly out of me..
