Trolley Dolly

What did I learn today?

  • Never skip Kevin's room with the Canteen Trolley - He doesn't move fast but he will track you down.
  • The trolley run consists of 1 hour ambling up and down corridors, 1/2 hour standing in corridors trying to figure out which way we were heading, 1 hour searching for lost wallets and purses (daughters seem to steal a lot of them) and 1 hour calculating and recalculating and recalculating the price of the two items you are calculating. (Thinking I should be able to shorten the trolley run by about 1.5 hours simply by walking at a reasonable pace, remembering which direction I am heading in and knowing how to calculate change in my head quickly.)
  • Your Bingo Partner will always remember you and be in a great mood on the day you don't work with her!
  • Everyone wants chocolate!
  • Those with a sense of humour will be waiting in the lounge every Mon in the hope that you will roll the trolley getting it out of the lift!
  • Most of the Auxiliary Ladies have worse memories than most of the Patients.
  • If you get your toes run over by the trolley it really hurts!
  • Putting your feet up with a coffee and a smoke in the staff garden at the end of a shift is really quite therapeutic.
I love this job! What a hoot!


  1. Sounds like a great way to spend a day!

    I know what you mean about the auxiliary ladies...

    hmmmm, so Kevin's your new bf, eh? he he

  2. Haha! I love Kevin! You can say anything to the man and he just smiles and nods, as he stares wistfully at the sugar laden trolley!

  3. That DOES sound like the perfect boyfriend!!
