Chief Complaint of the Night

Well, sort of.
23 year old male presents to Hood Hospital via EMS for dental pain x 1 week. As is the standard of care, he is seen at the front desk briefly by the doctor and is sent promptly to the waiting room to check in and be triaged like everyone else and their mama who decided to check in last night.
I hand him the check in form, to which he responds by pushing it back towards me and saying, "Man, fuck y'all, fuck this, I'm about to go to the house", and then promptly leaves to walk back to his apartment, which is blocks away.
Yup. Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen.
