It goes without saying that no one is hanging out in a hospital just to soak up the elegantly relaxing atmosphere. What’s more, if we’re talking about an urgent care center, well, it’s sort of implied in the name that everyone in the waiting room wants to get treated as soon as possible.
Still, it’s human nature to feel a greater sense of immediacy with your own crises, so when the hospital staff tells you you’ll have to wait your turn, it can be hard to just wait patiently. Tried and true methods of calming yourself down include taking deep breaths, pacing around the room to burn off excess anxious energy, or taking a moment to mentally remind yourself that you’ve done all you can for the moment, and that keeping a clear head is the most important thing to do.
Or, you can do what this man in China did, and try to convince the nurse that your needs take priority by kicking her in the spine.
