Adventure with the community clinic

So here the story goes.
I am having a major allergy reaction. Main suspect - the painkiller by the dentist. I went for a impacted 3rd molar removal this afternoon. I thought it deserves a special coverage, but this one tops it off.

So I was having the allergy reaction at around 4.30pm, 15minutes after I swallowed the painkiller. The left eye is getting REALLY swollen, liquid kept pouring out from it. I thought it is lucky to have a clinic in your very own apartment neighborhood. So I rushed there. To my dismay, I was informed the doctor will only be there at 7pm.
I was like....WTF?? A clinic that open at 7pm? But closes at 9.30pm.
Fine, I thought. So I went back awaiting their call. Finally at 7.30pm, I was with the "doctor".

She is this old blurrish aunty with old saree.

Her  : What is the problem?
Me  : I am having an allergic reaction.
Her  : Where?
Me  : *Pointing to my eyes* Here, swollen.
Her  : What is the problem?
Me  : .......Its swollen.
Her  : Why?
Me  : ..............Allergic reaction
Her  : Oh, allergic to what?
Me  : Pain killers, I went to the dentist this afternoon
Her  : *Tunjuk muka blur*
Me  : I went to the dentist, to pull out a tooth
Her  : *Continues to act blur*
Me  : Dental Clinic....tooth extraction. So I had a painkiller.
Her  : *Eyebrows starting to curl*
Me  : *Pointing to my tooth, then mimicking a pulling movement* Deeeennnntisssstttttttt *I said*
Her  : Ohhhhh, Dentist. Why you go to the dentist?
Me  : ............................................To pull out a tooth, and he gave me painkillers, I ate them, and I am having an allergic reaction.
Her  : Is there any pain on your tooth?
Me  : *Almost explodes!!!* No, but I am having an allergic reaction to the painkillers.
Her  : So there is no pain to your tooth now?
Me  : .............................No, not NOW. But now I am having an allergy.
Her  : Where?
Me  : *Almost vomit blood* Pointing to my eyes* Its swollen.
Her  : Any pain? Or Itching?
Me  : No, only swollen. And very uncomfortable.
Her  : Where?
Me  : .....................*points at my eyes* There...........
Her  : What is the problem?
Me  : *very pissed off* I took the painkillers, and now I am having an allergic reaction....
Her  : When?
Me  : THIS AFTERNOON
Her  : Why?
Me  : I WENT TO THE DENTIST TO PULL OUT A TOOTH, HE GAVE ME PAINKILLERS, I ATE THEM, AND NOW I AM HAVING AN ALLERGY
Her  : When you eat the painkillers?
Me  : ................................this afternoon.
Her  : When you have the allergy?
Me  : THIS AFTERNOON
Her  : Any pain? Itching?
Me  : No.....swollen. Very swollen.
Her  : Where?
Me  : *malas oredi* points at face*
Her  : Getting better?
Me  : Yes, better than this afternoon.
Her  : Then it is going to get better in 2-3 days.


At this point, my brain had a seizure. If I can fucking wait for 2-3 days, why the fuck I go to the clinic for a solution? A shot, a pill or anything like that. Its like somebody with high fever, goes to a clinic, then the doctor say - oh, after the fever you will be ok again. WTF!!!!!

And the above conversation is a SHORTEN version.
She is either humiliating the whole woman society, or she is just rick-rolling me.

Bought 3 pills, worth Rs2.00
