I thought I had missed my destination and gone to Hell for a confused moment.
When I finally got their attention, I signalled that I wanted a pencil and they held a pad and I scrawled "TV EVIL!!!!" and the doc looked weird at me and told the nurse to turn off the TV. My brother laughed when the doc told him about it.
Otherwise, I tried to take as good care of the care staff as they took care of me. Being a problem patient wasn't going to get me better care, and they didn't deserve to get lashed at because I didn't feel well.
It worked for me.
Tv Evil! LOL.
Jokes aside, you don’t sound like a problem patient at all. It seemed to me the staff already knew you a bit before you joked around..
