Whilst I have been on holiday, my NHS training has been called upon during several incidents. Today, there was yet another incident (the third person in my family to forget about the force of gravity) and I ended up having to negotiate with a paramedic about the best course of action – he and I did not agree.
Anyway, some of my relatives were being rather excessive in their expressions of praise and appreciation for my response to the incidents we have had over the past week, and well…I really do not like flattery. So in rebuttal, I stated:
“It’s all part of the NHS service. That is what you pay your taxes for.”
