I went to the clinic on like Tuesday because my stomach started hurting really badly and i wanted to come home and take some meds. So i walked in and there’s like 30 kids waiting and so i have to stand against the wall and wait for her to sign every kid in. i dont know why we couldnt simply sign ourselves into the clinic.
WHY CAN’T WE JUST SIGN OURSELVES OUT IF WE’RE 18?? seriously? i know no1 would stay at school but its just kind of stupid that we’re allowed to decide the next president, smoke, and gamble but we can’t leave school when we’re ill without calling our parents.
anyways so like basically the nurse was super nice BUT EXTREMELY SLOW. slower than my deceased great grandparents.
so she starts signing the kids in and making sure they have passes, taking their temps with this cool new forehead thermometer, and filling out their passes or whatevv. then this guy comes in like, ‘im here to pick up my sister’ and the nurse is like, ‘…but i didnt even make a call yet…’ and she’s like ‘yeah i texted him’ and the nurse was like ‘ahhh hell nahhh’ and she like called the girls mom and explained teh rules of the school and how cells arent allowed and whatever. meanwhile these sick kids on the side were like coughing and throwing up. i was like ‘is this really necessary? cant you just let the sick girl go home??’ but she was like getting the girl into trouble with the admin and stuff. it was all very dumb.
and thennnnnnnnnn after like 3 people finally got their calls home there were 4 of us left (we didnt really start out with 30.i may have exaggerated a little) and these kids started coming in from their science class like ‘can we use some sterile things for our science experiment??’ so instead of saying something like ‘i have sick kids here and i need to take care of them first’, she was like ‘okayy and started searching her office and the clinic for something good.
i was like..are you effing serious?? is this real??
and my stomach was killing me. but at least i could sit down because enough people left.
this kid came into the clinic and the nurse was like, ‘why are you here?’ and he was like, ‘ dont know! i had to use the bathroom and my teacher wouldnt let me go so i told her i was sick and she told me to come to the clinic!’ and the nurse CALLED HIS MOM AND TOLD HER. she was like ‘i dont know why he’s here! he just had to go to the bathroom…’ and it was kind of ridiculous!
then my friend walks out of the sleeping area thing after a 2 hour nap…lol
and she feels horrible and we’re still waiting for the nurse to take our info and call our parents.
FINALLY AFTER 4 LONG YEARS OF WAITING, she gets to us and we call our parents. she was like ‘do you really really have to have to have to go home?? you dont have a temperature!!’ i was like ‘excuse me bitch ive been waiting here for 7 years i’m pretty sure its time for me to go home.’
anyone who wants to go to the clinic in the future…DONT. just leave school and then get it excused later. trust me. you will thank me.
