Last week while one of the team was acting as officier of the day and patrolling the practice perimeters all right then signing a few prescriptions they overheard a conversation between some of the reception staff. One of them had managed to get some tickets to see the now middle aged boy band Take That in concert and was clearly loving the attention of and jealousy of her co-workers who would have given their right arms for such tickets.
Now, given the ages of the staff, who would have been pre teens and teenagers when the Osmonds were the hot ticket in town, age had not mellowed their adulation of their rock gods or their individual lusts after their favourate band members. They were no longer pre teens and were mostly mothers with teenage kids and the team member, one the minority sex at ND Central, knew that when these staff members went out socially there was usually a large amount of fermented fruit juices consumed.
The team member made an off the cuff remark that the local Police must be dreading the coming of a Take That concert to their patch for dealing with a football riot would be easier than policing a load of hormonally challenged, booze sozzled middle aged ladies lusting over a boy band only a few years younger than themselves. This did not go down too well with the boy band droolers who quickly oppressed the minority and told them to get back to work. Some of us know our place at ND Central and did just that.
We did not think much of it until someone told us about a news item on this morning’s news bulletin. Can you guess what it might have been about?
Contact Northern Doc:
Northern Doc was once a blog originally written by a group of GPs in Northernshire and expressed their experiences and frustrations of working in today's NHS. The pieces were compiled at social meetings after work and published anonymously in a once free society. Following the Government's Medical Council clamp down on freedom of thought, speech and expression by doctors and our belief that the views of a few doctors DO NOT represent the views of the profession as a whole their views will now be written by and published by a journalist who has previously contributed to the blog by virtue of social ties. Any inference that the word Doc means a doctor is now purely coincidental. This is as of the 22 April 2013.
