pagi tadi sebelum kena halau, aku masuk ward hari ni pun sekejap aja because tak ada interesting case. so, aku decided to go to the library before the discussion session starts. masa tu, mr. haridass tgh buat rounds with the other doctors, and we didn't cross paths at all. so, he couldn't have seen me prior.
my groupmate called me when i was in the library. said that mr. hari wanted to see all the students. so, i went back into the ward.
i was wearing the black pants that mama recently bought for me and the formal shoes that i have (i have worn these items for weeks and there were no incidents or complaints or teguran whatsoever regarding what i wore), and the labcoat all buttoned up (which i have been practising since mr. pelik's incidents with me).
i was standing behind the group as i was raeding something on the board while waiting for mr. hari to see us.
Mr. h: "you, come here. why are you standing there. you are the culprit. what are you wearing? you cannot get something proper to wear to the hospital is it?"
*me looking up and down at myself*
me: "these are not jeans sir, these are pants"
mr. h: "you don't know the code of wear in the hospital is it?"
me: "i don't know sir"
mr. h: "you don't know, you tell me. then i can give you the book"
*enter mr. pelik out of nowhere*
mr. p: 'oh, the same person lagi. i ingat orang lain'
mr. h: "i have never caught you but mr. pelik has caught you several times regarding your attire. open your coat."
*i don't see any relevance to this as my coat was all buttoned up and it is not see thru. but i unbuttoned anyway because he has asked me to.*
mr h: 'see what you are wearing. a t-shirt is it?"
note -> i was wearing a blouse layered with a top. but that does not matter as i was wearing my coat that was all BUTTONED UP.
me: "no sir, this is a blouse"
mr. h: "a blouse arr? then what are all those designs? now you go out of the ward and don't come back again. next time don't wear like this. you all think that if you wear labcoat and walk around, you are doctors is it?"
*err..... no. anyone can wear a labcoat. i certainly don't think i am a doctor yet, but my patients keep on calling me 'doctor' and my groupmates says that i look the part as a doctor already. so you tell me, does the way that i dress, which is very apropriate already, hinder me from being a good junior medical staff?*
*enter mr. pelik yet again, talking to the nurses that passed by*
mr.p: "sis, mr. hari baru HALAU budak ni. jangan kasi dia masuk lagi"
"kak, mr. hari baru HALAU budak ni tau. kalau dia masuk lagi, bagitau tau saya cepat-cepat"
mr. h: "today you may leave. next time if i catch you again, the whole batch cannot enter the surgical wards at all. this is the last warning"
note -> this happened infront of all my groupmates, at the nurses' station. you can just imagine the crowd.
*tak kisah pun. esok last day. aku pakai purdah la. tgk ok ke tak. but akhir tahun ni nak kena masuk surgery ward lagi (-_-"), jadi kena stock up dengan baju yang orang pakai pergi funeral la kott*
me: 'ok sir. sorry'
*i didn't even know what i was sorry about. i didn't do anything wrong. even my groupmates didn't think that i did anything wrong*
i told saras abt this (cause she wasn't in the ward today) and what she tot was that all this was just a facade to puaskan hati mr. pelik. they knew that i went to the director of HSAH about these abuses and mr. hari is doing this because he can't be putting down his own staff. so the scape goat is.......well, you guessed it.....ME!
i wasn't pissed or angry, i was CONFUSED. but i did not let any of them bring me down. i did something to myself to take the confusion away. something unthinkable in my books, something really unimaginable in anyway possible in my life.............I HAD A HAIRCUT! (please refer to "7 wonders of red". having a haircut is one of my fears.)
