Though the anxious filly has calmed down somewhat at the workplace - what with the bitter disputes with her colleagues - and turned near responsible, I have to admit that Nancy still has a problem with time management. More like she has a problem with time. Procrastination and tardiness seems to be her worst faults but after a couple of lectures, she has been trying her level best to overcome them.
Though I doubt Nancy can do much about her tendency to dawdle.
Paul : You gotta move faster. Otherwise the patient's gonna be in the mortuary by the time you react!
Nancy : But I'm moving as fast as my flats can go!
Paul : The patient with the knee amputation hobbled to the toilet faster than you did.
Nancy : But he had a walking cane!
Yes, she moves like a slug.
Blood pressure's falling, alarms ringing and nurses wailing - and yet our Nervous Nancy seems perfectly oblivious to the wild commotion. There she goes, our phlegmatic heroine, plodding along her way impervious to the warning signs around her. Nothing seems to penetrate her foggy haze of abstraction. As I zip through the work at hand, our Nancy seems to move almost in slow-motion!
Which is why it was a mistake letting her to drive me to the airport.
Believing that impatient doctors usually gulp their food down when time's running short turned out to be misleading when it came to this particular female. Since Nervous Nancy takes exactly two hours to tenderly nibble through a cucumber sandwich. Crumb by crumb. Even with the clock ticking, she seemed perfectly unperturbed and continued to peck at her her leisurely brunch.
Paul : I've checked in but there's less than half an hour to the plane taking off.
Nancy : I'm eating as fast as I can.
Paul : That's what you said an hour ago. Gulp it down now with the drink before I force-feed you with a straw.
Nancy : I'm trying!
Paul : Move it, move it, move it!
Even under the threat of violence, she only seemed to speed up by a near imperceptible amount.
I won't even talk about how slow Nancy drives. Swear a blind octogenarian limping on a bum knee overtook us.
