True story from the old country

One of my uncles is over from Dublin and he was telling me about an occasion when his daughter (then a teenager) managed to knock herself unconscious in a swimming pool. Although she was rescued and recovered, she had problems with her vision for some weeks and they thought they ought to get her eyes double checked.

Eventually my uncle managed to speak to a consultant, who was rather dismissive of the whole thing.

"Get her to read the death notices in the Irish Times, Mr Anderson," he said. "If she can do that, sure she's ok."

Remind me to get private medical insurance next time I travel to Ireland.
