5 Signs You've Spent Too Much Time at the Hospital Lately

1) When you're checking in, instead of verifying your name, address, and insurance information, the receptionist says, "Nothing's changed since yesterday, right?"

2) You recognize some of the people in the promotional posters hanging in the waiting room. "Look-- it's Dr. M! And isn't that the nurse that...?"

3) You know to request the paper tape for the I.V. Regular tape is for suckers!

4) When the person you're waiting for emerges from what was supposed to be a one-hour procedure 2.5 hours late, you say, "Wow, that's it? You're done already?"

5) You can't remember where in the parking garage you parked the car. Level 5, on the uphill side? No, that was last time. Dammit.


  1. What a suck. I'm glad things are looking at least a little better. Sympathy for you and your husband!

  2. Aw, so sorry you guys have been going through this. Best wishes for your husband's health!

  3. Thanks! At least we're into the treatment phase of hospital visits, and out of the "what the hell is wrong with you NOW?" phase.
