    Called a pt in to be triaged. he stopped three steps from triage and yelled this chief complaint quote:

    "F--- you, you f---ing c---!"

    then walked out of the ED. I still have no idea why he came in.

    Thanks, I actually felt stupid going to Urgent Care but not so much when I left. A person can be allergic to their bites from what I've read.
    When I delivered my oldest child one July, I had three or four large welted purple mosquito bites on my leg....one of the nurses asked me repeated questions about my home life...when I realized what she was getting at, I ended up telling her all about my other allergies. Kinda did look like I got pushed down a flight of stairs. My daughter is horribly allergic to mosquitoes too. When she was 2, I took her to the pediatrician because her eye swelled shut from two bites. New Hampshire mosquitoes are the size of Eagles.

    Didn't have something called sounding rods for sexual pleasure, so inserted a balloon like clowns use to make balloon animals into his urethra. He let go of it and apparently slid in too deep for him to retrieve. Came complaining he couldn't get it out and painful urination.
