Living in the UK I am used to hearing people complain about the state of the NHS. Sometimes though you ahve to be grateful for what you have:

Ants eat away woman's eye in hospital

KOLKATA, India (Reuters) - A woman receiving treatment for diabetes at a state-run hospital in eastern India lost one of her eyes after ants nibbled away at it, officials said on Tuesday.

The patient recovering from a post-surgery infection shrieked for help as the ants attacked her on Sunday night, but nurses told her it was normal to feel pain from the infection.

On Monday, the patient's family saw a gaping hole with swarming ants in it when they lifted the bandage on her left eye....

Poor, porr woman. Horrible in so many ways.

Almost as bad but not quit was the Rastafarian teenager who while getting a hair cut complained that the hairdresser was cutting him with her scissors.

He had very large dread locks and his head was thickly matted.

The hair dresser said that she had only just started to brush the hair with a comb.

He let her continue but then after a few minutes he cried out screaming that she was cutting him he could not take it any longer. She swore blind that she had not even begin to cut his hair.

Turns out he had a redback spiders nest in his head and she had disturbed it.

Every time I see a person with dread locks now I think, spiders nest and get a chill down my spine.

The eye story is disgusting, can't wait to tell my friends.
