    Why is it that whenever sombody make light of somthing sombody always has to come out with "Thats not very proffesional". I have NEVER had a patient complain about my light heartedness, in fact most enjoy it. I DO hear complaints form patients about snooby staff who are trying to be little ms. (or mrs./mr. don't wnat to be politically incorrect too) perfect. Usually sounds somthing like "I'm glad your hear today, such and such had a stiff broom up ......" Tell me are Tattoo's and earings and long hair in men unproffesional also? Is using laymans terms to explain what your about to do to a patient unproffesional? Guess i'm screwed and should loose my licenese than. Chili2641, try spending some time in the humor section, and lighten up.
