I quit my job today,

told my employer that

it was difficult dealing

with patients dressed in white

acting like they knew everything.

I said, “They’re clearly delusional.

It’s a classic case of the patient

trying to impose their will on

the therapist by acting accusatory,

entitled and self-important.”

My employer had the gall to

call me delusional. He then

demoted me to the emergency

ward where the patients had

the audacity to tie me up

to the bed. What sort of

institution is this anyway?

Where are the worker’s rights?

They don’t pay us anything,

don’t allow us to go home,

give us three badly cooked meals,

moderate our cigarette breaks,

and make sure we take some

pills that improve ‘productivity.’

This happens when

you’re stuck working on a

commie planet. At least the

aliens are okay. They’re only

partially sentient, but observing

them at night makes me believe that

I’ll make it back to earth one day.

  1. Remember that patient at the Cadabams asylum, who told everyone he was a doctor? Was this inspired by him?

    1. Yes it was 😅 I even remember his name because one girl had a crush on him and wrote a FB post about him! I was in two minds about posting this because I wondered if it was too dark.

    1. Thank you Vanessa 😊. I might flesh it out one day. The problem with writing prose is that it takes time and drains your energy. But yeah I want to write more fiction.
