This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

So many clicks
I have only just got out of hospital from my second stay and second operation in 2 weeks and my word is the NHS an amazing thing. The nurses all cared about my feelings, whether or not I was in pain and my dignity. The doctors realised when I was first admitted that my rather boring symptom of an excruiatingly painful knee was actually a sign of a life threatening infection, I hadn't in fact sprained it, and in doing so saved my life. I also got an amazingly clean en suite side room, both times, for FREE. The NHS is the best thing that has ever happened to this country and I can't praise it and all who work for her (including the managers who free up the nurses' time!) enough.

It depends where you go.
My experiences of the NHS had been almost wholly positive until I discovered the joys of the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow which is proud to model itself on Scutari and where the nursing staff seem to take Nurse Ratched as their role model.

Well I was in Kettering
and the town is far from solubrious, the hospital is probably the only good thing there.

Shit man ! Kettering Hospital is famous for that flesh eating bug thing.

But true, the town is shit.
