...or do I have a right to be angry at this? Yesterday my 3 year old son had to go for an eye appointment at Peterborough hospital. No dramas as both myself and Mrs Squirrel are on leave at the mo, and anyone who knows me in person will agree that the boy's eyes need to be checked out. Anyway, we were asked to provide proof that our son had the right to free medical care in the UK, I got a bit shirty to be honest, and mentioned that he was born in that very same hospital and that if they checked their records, then that would surely be enough... ...not good enough. I flashed my RN ID card (dangerous in P'boro, I know) and the Mrs flashed her RAF ID card (even more dangerous for her) but still... ...not good enough. They said that they needed something with name and address on, so we showed them the appointment letter they'd sent... ...not good enough. I flashed at this point, and asked why the obvious fact that we were both speaking English, with a North Wales and North East England accent respectively, didn't indicate that we were indeed UK citizens... ...indignant response. Thankfully Mrs remembered her driving licence was in the car so she nipped out to get it. BINGO good enough. Does anyone have a clue why this happened? I'm at a fcuking loss!!!!!
