I'm currently waiting in an emergency room waiting room. My 11 year old sister decided to race my 10 year old brother and my 10 year old son across the yard, but she was wearing flip flops and tripped, landing face first on a rock. My mother can't drive due to recent ankle surgery, so my father stayed with the boys while I drove my mother and sister.
So, I drop my mother and sister off at the entry way and race to find a parking spot, which thankfully took all 30 seconds because there was an open handicapped spot right up front. I came in just in time to see this woman literally shove my mother out of the way to get to the registration desk first. My mother is 64 years old, has her left foot in a walking cast and her right knee in a brace (30 year old knee replacement that needs to be replaced again). Now, if this woman's kid looked like he was at all sick, I might understand, but the kid was bouncing around like a normal, healthy kid. I also understand that there are "hidden" issues, but that's no reason to shove an old, obviously injured, walker-using woman out of the way.
So, this woman then gets to the registration area and is talking loud enough for half of Miami to hear her. Apparently the kid has asthma and "needs his breathing checked", and also, "can he be fast tracked because of his condition". Now, two of my kids have asthma. I can recognize and asthmatic emergency. This kid did NOT have an emergency going on.
After all that, my sister still got a room before this kid did.
Edited to add: I apologize for any confusion in the body of this post. I started to post while we were in the waiting room, but half way through we got called back to an exam room.
