A well-known medical facility in Camberwell worried that the privacy of its patients is under threat has taken measures to protect it. People had been using the clinic as a shortcut to get to Woolworths and Target’s car park.

Concerned that people in the waiting room may be seen by family members, spouses and ex’s, a staff member has come up with a brilliant low-tech solution to prevent awkward questions such as, “What are you doing here?”

“I got a piece of paper and wrote a message on it basically saying ‘Don’t walk through here’ and stuck it on the front door,” explained Rose whose initiative has sparked gossip she is management material.

Despite this it’s too late for one couple, “I tried to be as discreet as possible but my now ex-wife walked through the practice and saw me. I tried to cover my face with a Cosmopolitan but it was too late,” cried Ben through tear-filled eyes. “She started shouting at me about some strange itch she was having and humiliated me in front of everyone in the waiting room.”

Thanks to the supple mind of Rose and her amazing sign more horrendous tragedies such as these can be avoided.
