Doctor In The House (1946)

surgical description of the repair of his hernias, a record of his mounting blood pressure, and details of the post-mortem following the final complaint that carried him off. Clutching his folder in one hand, he took his place at the end of the queue seated outside the door of his clinic. The queue shifted up the wooden seat as each patient was called inside by the stern-faced nurse at the door : the movement was slow and spasmodic, like the stirrings of a sleepy snake.
For the first half-hour the patient amused himself by reading carefully through his folder of confidential notes, comparing in his mind what the doctors had written about him with what they told him to his face. After a while this became boring, so he read the morning paper. When he had exhausted the paper, he passed the remainder of the time in clinical discussion with his neighbours. This was the most attractive part of the visit, and a pleasure he had been storing up for himself.
Discussion of one's illness with neighbours on the bench was done with pride : the patients wore their symptoms like a row of campaign medals.
`Wot you in for, cock?' he began to the man next to him. "Art trouble,' was the reply, delivered with gloomy zest. 'Anyfink else?'
`That's enough, ain't it?' replied the neighbour sharply. "Ow about you?'
`The doctor says I am a walking pathological museum.' The patient rolled the syllables off his tongue deliberately. 'Go on!'
`I've got diabetes mellitus, 'emeroids, normocytic anaemia, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, 'ammer toe, cholecystitis, and an over-active thyroid.'
