Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Threw another abusive asshole out of my clinic today.

I was at lunch in my office. A few of the staff always have to stay at the desk in the bullpen during lunch to help in inquiries, etc. Some guy (not my patient) walks in and starts bellyaching about how he isn't able to get his medication refilled. Just an asshole from the word 'go'. I listen to him bitch for a while, and then he says: "If I don't get my refill, I'm gonna go ballistic!" Well, nowadays, that's not something to be taken lightly.

But lightly or not, you don't issue threats in my clinic without going out on your ass. I marched out of my office and told him straight out to beat it. He rolled his eyes and ignored me. I shook my head, got the nurse supervisor, a big guy who takes shit from exactly zero people, and threw his ass out.

A patient can yell and scream at me all he/she likes. You yell at the staff, or issue threats, and you're gone...

Anyway, buzzing the stress of the day away...

Coffee up, put some Mozart on the stereo, and hit the books...
