The Fugitive Interns

This is the funny story of two fugitive intern pals Marco and Chris.

After a toxic rotation, these two interns gave up on all the worries of life and looked forward to a benign rotation before going into the hell of obstetrics. I think they decided that nothing will stand on their way of getting their much needed R&R.

Day 1. The two fugitives decided they did not want to go immediately and show up at their rotation. They had lunch at Trinoma instead. After they finally showed up at their respective rotation. They were assigned patients to rounds for SOAPing.

Day 2. Attended a conference with free food. Of course they were present. Free Food. Chris's top two favorite words. Which can go separately and together become even better! Free. Food. Free Food!!! The patients!? What Patients??

Day 3. OPD Day. oops... They had a "reporting" -- not a lie, they did had a reporting which took the entire afternoon. Still no patients :-)

Day 4. Finally. OPD. Chris saw... 1 patientssssssss. Marco 1 patientssssssssss... pretty busy... It came to pass that it was time to wrap up the OPD. Both were sitting across the intern's monitor when... "So.... who is your patient in the ward?" .... .... .... (Marco pursed his lips... his EEG and ECG tracings must have been off the charts already. Chris pretended to look at the ceiling) "You don't have patients yet have you!?" (Chris slowly shakes his head while looking remorseful) HAHAHAHAHA well... the fellow... did not get mad and assigned them each one patient plus a whole ward to make rounds :-) ... and had them report on a topic too...

Day 5. After their reporting another fellow asked "Why are you asking them so many questions?" Answers "Because they're so MASIPAG (with all the sarcasm in the world)" bwahahahahaha...

So it came to pass that these two are now in a VERY TOXIC ROTATION two months short of finishing their internship.
