Quoroom Forum (15 Dec 2008)

The Quoroom forum is open for business.

We have many talented writers here and we all enjoy getting passionate about some of our pet peeves (eg, Derryn Hinch, reality TV shows, Australians behaving badly, McDonald's food ... anything). Just remember: "what ye shall sow, so shall ye reap" - in other words, be prepared to take lots of criticism! What better title could one give this than ... the Soapbox?

“My name is...

I had my second COVID vaccination today and so I’m feeling particularly pleased with myself.  Not having anything else on my plate (because we’re in lockdown after all, aren’t we) I was in an especially cheeky mood when it came time for me to get the jab.
 
Knowing the long list of questions they get you to answer (and a lot of these questions seem to be more of a memory test for those who are in their “advanced years” of life) I thought I’d cut through them quickly without being prompted:

If you think I'm wrong then say "I think you're wrong". If you say, "You're wrong", how do you know?

There was actually more to this story but I omitted a few irrelevant details.  I misheard some of Padma's questions such as "Have you had any 'flu-like symptoms recently?" to which I answered "Yes, I have been drinking fluids this morning."  It's a bit difficult when you're trying to understand what people are saying when they have half their face covered with a surgical mask.

Another question was about fainting:  had I ever fainted after having an injection?  I've fainted a couple of times in my life when I've had blood removed from my arm but not from having anything injected into it;  I decided to keep that information to myself. I admit to being a little haemophobic.  There was also a sign in the vaccination room about people taking selfies—although you weren't allow to take photos of the staff—but I really wasn't interested in "prepping" for the "photo op" after getting the jab.

One final memory of the day:  I saw Jason again ... helping an elderly chap in the recovery room.

If you think I'm wrong then say "I think you're wrong". If you say, "You're wrong", how do you know?
