    I've had this happen. Try going to customer service and see if they will extend the rain cheque because of it. My store did when I asked.

    @walkonby
    There's a thread for it, but it's not well-used.
    https://forum.smartcanucks.ca/21714-...ebsite-canada/
    Natalka usually just posts them in the 'reviews' forum under 'Canadian shopping discussion'

    I have an allergy to pineapple period. There was juice that my mom gave me these electrolyte bottles to drink little did I know I drank half the bottle to notice my chest tightening up then read the bottle contains "from concentrate pineapple juice" I freaked out after someone told me to take some benedryl I did it didn't work. My throat was itchy and and the roof of my mouth was raw. Well I waited 2 1/2hours at emerge to see a doctor who said that I had in doubt an allergic reaction to the juice she said it would take a couple days to clear up! They gave me high dose of zantac and Advil which was hard to swallow.

    My rant is why did I not get seen sooner if I actually did have an allergic reaction and my throat was swollen, uvula, and my whole mouth looked to have inner hives?

    You say you were in Emergency? Or were you at the outpatient/triage area (which is quite often next to Emergency in most hospitals). If you were in Emergency, then you wouldnt have been in a waiting area. You would have been taken directly to a bed and been connected to a machine to monitor your vital signs. You may have waited 2+ hours in emergency, but so long as your status didnt waiver on the monitors, you're still under observation, but perhaps not as immediately critical as others in the ward. Others with say head traumas, heart failures, internal damage, etc which could be immediately fatal take priority.

    The similar concept is applied in the outpatient/triage area, but with a reduced risk and without the monitoring. They take your immediate vitals (blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen level, etc) and a once-over examination. If you arent deemed a fatality risk, you wait. Plain and simple. (if you are, then they cart you into Emergency, which is why they're usually next to one another -- and you wind up on a monitor as above) -- If you remain in the outpatient/triage area and your symptoms get progressively worse during your wait, then you (and/or presumably the person you came in with) should advise the triage nurse(s) on duty of your change and you would be re-triaged.

    In the end, (and no offense intended) you weren't seen sooner because they assessed you properly in whichever scenario played out above. I presume your allergy isnt (or wasnt at that time) a fatality risk. Especially if they let you go with what are otherwise over-the-counter meds and told you to wait it out a couple of days. Again, without having been there myself, (and with no intention of belittling your situation, your discomfort, nor your frustration) it does sound like they made the right call.

    It sucks that you had to wait that long, but ultimately you didnt get worse, and you lived to tell the tale. Hope you feel better soon.

    When I was a child, I had consumed shrimp accidentally when I am severely allergic to shellfish. I was unable to breathe, my throat had closed up and I was triaged at emergency and taken immediately to a room where I was hooked up to equipment to monitor my vitals. It was about 10 minutes once I was admitted that nurses assessed me and took me to the room. The doctors treated me very shortly, so I think it's a matter of who is in more dire need.

    GO TO SLEEP ALREADY!!!!! (Ds1) Iím trying to get the kids to sleep so I can order in some food and watch the walking dead. Ds2 is already asleep but ds1 just wonít stop talking and go to sleep.

    dh canít help because he went to a friends house to watch the wrestling pay per view. He went over there for me so I could watch my show live instead of having to wait until tomorrow when the kids are in school.

    I turn them on as I go once it's dark to make sure everything looks right and everything is spaced correctly, but they go back off within five minutes. I am respectful of Remembrance day and I wait until after to turn my lights on.

    But people get actually UPSET because it's 'so early' to be putting them up. I don't turn them on and leave them on until November 12th. All I ever hear is "It's not even Halloween yet!" I don't know if y'all know, but this is Canada, not Florida, and November is cold and snowy. The stupidest weather to be out fiddling with things on a rooftop. Not to mention I work retail and the busiest time of the year for me will not allow me any extra time off to do it any time in November or December...
    Ours were up when we bought the house last march and will stay up because we are scared of heights!

    When things become norm and people decide to always put their two cents in even though it's a rant just to rant not a question for them to answer...

    Or when your mother has to inform you of all the gruesome things that have happened to people you have known right before bed so all you do is dream about them gruesome things....

    When people take advantage of you when you trade a pack of smokes for a leather jacket for someone else and then they decide to turn around and talk about money to you it's like for f sakes thanks for stabbing me with your money lingo when you owe me more then the weight of gold, mister.

    Or when people walk down ur hallway at 15mins to 5 am yelling and cussing at each other!

    Or when you become sick and work doesn't believe you!

    Or you run outta butter to butter your bread before pay day(Wednesday)
