Alice: This is impossible.
Mad Hatter: Only if you believe it is.
I rushed to General Operation theatre for 2 pending procedure.
A call from the nursing counter for me.
It was a referral from one of the primary care department of my hospy.
She had to start her conversation by sighing and tell me this:
"Dr Pilo, hi, I need to refer a case to you. It is impossible to reach you."
My reply: "I'm in OT. No line"
What I was thinking of replying her was
"How can I make it possible for you?
Well, you see, there is 3 problems with your statement.
Firstly, if you're already talking to me, how would you consider it to be impossible.
Secondly, unless I purchase the telecommunication company, I do not foresee any connectivity through my handphone in the future whenever I am in OT or A&E department. Pager system never had worked for the department ever. Even a Red Alert looks like Pink Alert.
Thirdly, if you're thinking that I am avoiding you or I am sitting idle at Starbucks Cafe far far far away from hospy, I think you're thinking way ahead of yourself. I don't even avoid my ex.
Get a hold of yourself.
Today is not my first day receiving referrals from your department.
Everyone knew, if you had called the ward, you would have known EXACTLY where I am, which is not Timbuktu."
