  •  When I was 16 or 17, I volunteered for Xmas (7+ / 0-)

    to man the reception desk at the local ER for 2 twelve hour shifts, so the regulars could have time off.

    Better than staying at home watching the Queen's broadcast, and putting up with my reactionary Uncle.

    Funniest ( well maybe) story was a woman who brought her 2 year old in after he swallowed half a bottle of aspirin thinking they were sweets,, while she prepared the turkey.

    After a few hours in ER, and a stomach pump, Mum and infant were sent home, where Mum discovered that the turkey was burning in the  oven. Plopping the kid down, she tried to salvage what was left of the turkey, only to realise that the kid was working on the remaining half bottle of aspirin.

    Wash, rinse, repeat!
