Why do practicing CRNAs not like OB? - page 2

Why do most (many) CRNAs not like to work OB? Loisann and Yoga; do you like OB? Why or why not? I have completed my OB rotation and, seriously, loved it. I'm in neurosurg now and pretty much... Read More

    Sorry, Deb. I can see some of our Ob docs, esp. laughing at the elphant joke, while they consider themselves OFF LIMITS for any type of humour. Do I think these guys (here on the board) really think this about all night nurses..Absolutely not. If my joke offended you, I am sorry. It was not meant to. It was just a little jab back at the men.

    I think that joke fits the 'vulgar' category pretty nicely. I have just as warped a sense of humour as any other nurse, but, deepz, you have to learn: Women do NOT take kindly to jokes about their weight! It's no different from telling a tasteless Polish joke in front of a group of Poles.

    I think an apology is in order.

    i thought it was a good joke, and even more hilarious is how many people are taking it so personal. get over it and learn to take a joke.

    it's so funny til you are the group being disrespected. Some things are better left unsaid, not only not to offend but to prevent oneself looking like a real buffoon.

    Vulgar? Please. I can't believe how offended people are getting. It was a funny joke, I guess...., but it's even more funny how upset you all are. Chill out.

    Ok, I will probably get heat from the users here for my actions. But Deepz, your joke did nothing to further the topic being discussed. My goal, for the CRNA forum is to keep it professional and non inflamatory. there is no reason to upset others on the board for a quick laugh.

    Lets keep the discussions objective, and not objectionable.

    Ok, I heard a good one the other day a while back from one of our CV surgeons:
    Q: What's the difference between a neurosurgeon and a sperm?
    A: At least the sperm has a one in a million chance of becoming a human being.

    Did you find this joke offensive and vulgar? I sure didn't. Why is it that we can joke about everyone else, but not about ourselves. And by the way, for the couple of people that made reference to polish jokes, I'm polish and love a good Polak joke. I'm also a blonde and not easily offended at blonde jokes. It's like a double whammy, blonde and Polish, but I've got a good enough sense of humor to not take everything to heart.

    Maybe this wasn't the best place for deepz to tell a joke like that....I mean, come on deep, you had to know that was going to get a bunch of panties in a bunch....but vulgar? Whatever..... I thought it was semi-funny.

    I have completed my OB rotation and, seriously, loved it. I'm in neurosurg now and pretty much could take it or leave it.
    I know this sounds kind of dumb. But I have never heard of a CRNA. What does that stand for?

    well, I did not get to read whatever deepz wrote so, i can not make any specific comments to that regard. I want to rest assured that after reading some of deepz's other posts that this most probably must have been done in humor.
