Here are a few valuable lessons I've learnt today...
1. Pencil skirt + large gap between platform and the train = near death experience.
2. Wearing a stethoscope while inside the hospital automatically makes people think I have more power than I actually do. This is a BAD thing. I got shouted at by some lady today about the lack of alcohol hand gel in the public areas of the hospital and then shouted at because I couldn't make a formal complaint on her behalf. I did feel like pointing out that the entrance and exit to every ward has a hand gel as well as every bed which is probably enough but I was scared she was going to kill me with her death stare.
3. Old people are really hard to take histories from.
4. I prefer listening to old people talk about "the olden days" than taking histories and if it was up to me I'd just spend all day having a chat.
5. The sickly sweet smell of ulcers has put me off of any sweet food for the foreseeable future.
6. I would like a house-elf to do my cleaning and cook me dinner so I could relax after a long day at uni. It would be good if this house-elf was proficient in the use of various databases to search for journal papers to make my life even easier.
(I think point 6 is more the start of a wish-list than a life learning point, but it needs to be said.)
