Then after we have them fill out a quick history/complaint form and they wait for an hour, they come up and start on one of their rants (usually swearing is involved) about "I was here before that person...." and it makes you want to tell them off. It's like, HELLO, that person has a GUNSHOT wound and you think that your little sore throat is more important? We had to call security on many people last night. It is amazing how those uniforms quiet people down.
