"chest pain"


This sign gives hints for how to get attention in a hurry: alleged symptoms. Thanks, Diana.

At least they credit the spanish-speaking community with enough sense to recognize the difference between "feeling gassy" and "chest pains." English speakers are just sooo like that, you know?

Wendy - seems more to me like discrimination! Spanish speaking patients need REAL pain, but the English speaking ones can fake it...

Gasp! You're right! Where is this place? Discrimination!

Well, it is fairly common for first-time mothers to imagine they are in active labor when they're not.

(My midwife always said if you can talk through it, it's probably not an active stage labor contraction.)

I love that Spanish speakers get different rules! "Funny!"
