Will I never learn?
There I was at the hospital around 10.30 this morning, two and half hours into my work day and everything humming along smoothly with no pressure evident when I uttered the fateful, asking for trouble, comment to my staff member collegue Ja. "It's a quiet morning isn't it?' said I to Ja and then wondered had I jinxed us? The answer was immediate and annoyingly long lasting.
All manner of slightly off centre people and situations hit us like a tsunami and kept rolling in through the day still bowling us over when I conceded defeat and signed off for the day at 3pm.
How many times has the tide turned alarmingly after similar comments by myself? Too many to remember actually.
If I ever make that comment again wheel me away in a straightjacket please.
