12 Minutes in an NHS Walk-In Centre

12 ears full of earwax preventing patients from hearing me
11 half-completed surveys
10 non-English speakers who want me to solve all their problems
9 phone calls asking for directions
8 squeaking chairs
7 drunks (even though it's only noon)
6 computer crashes
5 screaming babies!
4 teenage girls seeking emergency contraception
3 hours of children's television blaring
2 bosses yelling at me because of
1 dog under a chair in a corner by the door that I failed to see
