I had been to the hospital for routine vaccinations for the baby. We entered our name in the waiting register and waited till our turn came. There were babies of different ages ranging from new born to about 2 years and all of them waited for their turn to come. I got the prescribed injections and was waiting outside the doc's room when all of a sudden a celebrity (read film star) appeared. One man (her staff) was carrying her baby. Needless to say, everyone was staring at her. Suddenly, she was not to be seen but the doc went out of the room with a torch and prescription pad in hand. The junior doc started seeing babies here. Later, I came to know that the celebrity was waiting in another room for her baby to be seen and this doc went up to that room to check the baby which was presumably doing good.She immediately left the place.
Fools like me were waiting since just 2 hours for our turn to see the doc and this lady walks in, sees the doc and goes off within minutes. Agreed since she is a celebrity, either she or the hospital authorities would have decided to opt the quick way out to avoid getting mobbed. I know many people always break the queue, but then what about the waiting patients? I noticed some parents having a hard time trying to cajole cranky babies and wait for their turn to see the doc. Nothing would have gone wrong if the celebrity waited in the same room till her turn came. But, sadly that did not happen and people had to wait till the celebrity and her baby left and then wait till their turn came. High time we all follow the queue system if in use at a particular place.
