I nominate my fellow patient at the antenatal clinic. I had been waiting 2.5 hours for my appointment (a big issue, but long story and irrelevant), the Dr finally comes out and calls my name and I head to the door, only to be blocked by another patient accosting the Dr wanting to know where she was in the queue and when it was her turn.
Yes, it's awful waiting over 2 hours to be seen by a Dr for a routine check-up, and I'm pretty sure she'd been waiting nearly as long as I had (it's a huge clinic at the hospital with a few dozen people in the waiting room so hard to tell, but she'd been there awhile). But that doesn't mean, when you hear the Dr call the name of somebody else you jump in, further delaying a clearly overloaded system. Because, you know, the faster the Dr got to actually see me the sooner the other lady's turn would come.
Incidentally, I too had earlier checked to see where I was in the queue - but I checked with the admin staff at the desk when they weren't busy checking in any new patients, I didn't wait and pounce on the next Dr who stuck their head out. And yes, I was also annoyed that the Dr didn't direct SS to check with the admin staff instead of stopping to assist them, it was only a few minutes but it was annoying seeing my turn had *finally* arrived. Oh and the Dr momentarily considered letting SS go ahead of me - she paused and asked me "How long have you been waiting?" and my response was a polite but firm: "Since 9:30 and I'm definitely not waiting any longer." She reassured SS of her spot in the queue and saw me as she should. (I saw when the Dr went and checked the pile of files for SS's, SS's was a couple below mine in the pile, so unless there'd been some odd mix-up it was definitely my turn!). I finally got to work at 1:15pm that day, and the antenatal clinic had the cheek this week to try to auto-book me for another Wednesday appointment and left a message on my cell about it "informing" me of when it is. I will be calling back and confirming as discussed with them previously that there is no way I will be attending that specific Dr clinic in future!!
