go sit your ass down before I come out there...

Yes we have a McDonalds in our hospital, believe it or not. So oftent the hood rats stop at McDonalds to get a big mac and fries before they come to ER. They appear at the window with a large bag of stuff asking to be seen for things like abdominal pain or nausea. They expect to be able to bring in their quarter pounder and chow down on it while we are triaging them.  Guess what? No. That won't be happening.  I mean, what is this a restaurant? This is an ER, it isn't a place for you and your family to have lunch.

People get really pissed when they can't bring their Mickey Dees back. Sometimes they are enraged, shouting that it is a stupid policy.  I am always amazed at people who come in with food to be seen.b I mean seriously...could you be a bigger idiot? Then there are the family and friends who go to McDonalds or the cafeteria and appear with all this shit and want to take it back to their brother and Dad. This is gross ER environment with all these germs flying around, yucky stuff gets all over the floor and everything else.  You want to have a picnic in the middle of this?
So take your chicken mcnuggets and fries totin', ronald mcdonald lovin',  idiot self and sit your ass down before I come out there..
