The Daily Mirror’s slogan online is: The intelligent tabloid/#madeuthink
You should not juxtapose the words intelligent and tabloid like that, I almost had an aneurysm.
Also, don’t claim to be intellectual and then follow it up with a hashtag, a hashtag that plays on the words of the schoolbully who would say “made u blink” upon feigning a punch.
Yes, you did make us blink and we did think. We thought about how stupid you are.
nothing can be more entertaining when you’re running on fumes than some great rock ‘n’ roll, uh, music
alienation: tips and tricks on how to pretend it does not exist
I just left Prague for a surgery appointment that will never happen.
Maybe it is the Czech departure or just the coldness of the bureaucracy but I could write a Kafka-esque novel out of this.
I have been waiting over 8 months for this procedure, it would be to help relieve a pain but they have not taken that into consideration, they’ve lumped it into the “to-do, err, someday?” pile.
And they call me within 14 hours of my appointment to tell me that it is cancelled because the doctor will not be there.
I don’t even live in that city any more, this is how long I have had to wait, yet I have somehow managed to find a way to make it there by 7:30am.
I’ve pulled favours to get someone to leave work and pick me up, I structured my entire summer around this and now the pin holding it all together is removed.
And now I have no recourse. They called me from a blocked number, the number I use to confirm, amend or cancel my appointment leads to a voicemail message in which there is loud laughter in the background.
Is bureaucracy making me insane?
It’s absolutely alienating me, what healthcare system is this when it takes the most cold, dismissive attitude of the state.
There is no care here, just order.
