Clinicals this morning started out like any other day. I had my usual breakfast– english muffin with butter and jam, with a coffee. It was a mental health day, which means we don’t have to wear uniform, instead we wear professional attire.

The mental health facility we work at is tucked away in a clean, peaceful, suburban Los Angeles community, where people like to walk their dogs at 7 am and still wait for the paper boy to deliver the news.

EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT! YOU LIVE NEAR A MENTAL HOSPITAL!

I’m not even sure if most people know that the big white house with the “children at play” sign on its driveway is actually a safehouse for the mentally unstable.

It’s a lockdown facility, which means every exit to the outside world pretty much has to be opened by a key. The key doesn’t actually UNLOCK the door. It trips a sensor which sends an electrical current to demagnatize the door so it can open. The whole facility is held together by really really strong magnets, let’s put it that way.

Well today the maintenance guy had to come over and fix something on the roof, and accidentally tripped some wiring which unlocked every exit to the facility, and slammed the fire doors in the hallways.

Our whole clinical group was split into twos guarding each potential exit out of the facility. Lucky for Tiffany & Cariza, they got stuck in the exercise room where some lady was crying because she doesn’t know how old she was, and someone else was complaining because the black guy didn’t touch her butt, but he touched her friend’s.

(Don’t you hate it when that happens?)

So Kimie and I got stuck guarding the main exit where we were accused of running a conspiracy and an ill-tempered patient decided to throw an orange at us

—you know, just for fun.
