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?

I've seen a bit too much of the attitude
that says "You don't pay at point of use for the NHS, so sit down and shut up, scum, and put up with whatever level of service we can be arsed to give you."

In this I may be a little biassed by the appallingly crap care my aunt got in the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow recently. Dear Nurses, when a doctor says that an elderly lady with a broken pelvis is to get morphine every hour, they don't mean "Every two and half hours if you feel like it". If you decide to shout at the elderly lady when she asks, in extreme pain, for the drugs she has been prescribed until she's reduced to tears, at least have the sense to do it when there aren't three visitors are her bed, eh?

And ... relax.
