10 Popular Activities At Accident And Emergency

  1. Bleeding to death.
  2. Starting a fight.
  3. Hitting on a nurse.
  4. Sleeping (or at least remaining unconscious).
  5. Feeling the pain.
  6. Acting bored shitless.
  7. Agitated mobile phone conversations.
  8. Slumping in chairs.
  9. Throwing up.
  10. Falling down.
  11. Sobering up.
    Based on years of observation and the fact there are too many drunks in this world. Accident and emergency does not make for an entertaining Friday or Saturday night out, but you’d be surprised how many clubbers end up there!

And no wonder central London hospitals anyway have separate waiting sections for kids and and adults…. The children’s waiting sections being worse of course because they psychic drive the patients with tape loops of Thomas The Tank Engine!

…and yet I’d still rather spend a night sitting around in A&E than in most clubs….

Done all of those… I’m thinking of writing a Rough Guide to the world’s hospitals…

The last time I was in A&E there was a well-dressed young couple sat with a full picnic in M&S bags, complete with proper cutlery, very clearly there purely for an evening of people-watching

This sounds like a trendy night club!

Re Roth’s ‘trendy night club’: I was at Benbow’s last Thursday and there’s now a side-bar where you can take lessons in self-catheterisation. It beats queuing up for the gents especially if like me you suffer from parureis – the inability to pee in front of other men (I have no problem in front of women). I’ve never been able to verify it but I think the club is named after Dr Benbow in THE NAKED LUNCH.

How rude.

O Runkbulle chuck, how could I have known that when your mother was screaming with pleasure and accomodating my gay old circumised sceptre that you would be the end result…

Racists, fascists, sexist morons and homophobes don’t like me – so obviously I’m doing at least some things right! But I think Runkbulle would be more improved by sudden death than me. Especially as anyone who’d resort to such childish abuse is already pretty much dead and as far as they are still ‘living’ are only acting out a poor charade of a worthwhile life.

Well I don’t like the way they are besmirching this comment stream. Be gone!

Missing out on that guess how that happenned game we all play ?

Great if you all keep it up I can do this blog again with a different list of 10!
@ Lucy Johnson – I agree with you but as it was commented on by others before I saw it, is directed against me and isn’t link spam, I decided to leave it. I may well delete drivel of this type if it turns up in the comments in the future.

I’ve never seen anyone attempt trepanation while waiting at accident and emergency but maybe you could start a new trend!

Comment by The Man in the Iron Mask on 2012-11-14 11:49:15 +0000

During trepanation you could have some appropriate music therapy – Luke Haines’ THE GREAT BRAIN ROBBERY.

I can dig it!

Point 8. Throwing up? Didn’t you mean more specific and spectacular projectile vomiting!

Comment by Frank Discussion on 2012-11-15 01:22:50 +0000

Personally I like to spit blood when I’m at A&E.
