Beware the Fury of a Patient Man.
– John Dryden
If you read my earlier post regarding my wife’s trip to an ER that employed an particularly apathetic doctor that apparently didn’t give any fucks about her patients, you may know that I filed a grievance with the State of Texas and spoke with the Administrator of Emergency Services for that Hospital.
I have since then spoken to the Sr. Administrator of Medical Doctors and the same Administrator of Emergency Services again. To my absolute delight I have been told of two things:
- I have no bill at that hospital (Which is fine because I wasn’t going to pay it anyway).
- The doctor that mishandled my wife’s care was no longer employed by that hospital.
Now, if the State of Texas will just levy something on her, that will just make my victory even better.
Why am I being so vindictive? So vengeful?
My wife’s condition was made worse by this doctor’s negligence. If this doctor is going to take out their bad day on their patients, then this person shouldn’t be handling people’s lives. So, I spoke up and made my voice heard and apparently it didn’t fall upon deaf ears.
Like the quote says: “Beware the Fury of a Patient Man.”
So, take note:
If you see someone just sitting still and watching you when you are being an asshat bully or a common fuckwit, it doesn’t mean that they are complying to your
demands tantrums, or are sitting there and letting whatever dumb thing you’re doing happen. It means that they are observing, learning, noting what you are saying and doing. Its at that point you shouldn’t be relaxed.
“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”
You should be terrified.
