    I am very proud to be American, and yes, was offended by the heading "Loud Mouthed Americans". My friends and coworkers accuse me of always seeing both sides of an issue, and this is simply what I was trying to get Lora to do. My intent was to say, "until you've walked a mile in our shoes..." So, ya'll were correct in that I meant no harm in my reply. As for Lora's reply to me..welllllll, being from the south, Alabama to be exact, let me point out that NOwhere did I use the word "slave" in my reply. As for forgetting I was a student, I started out in Central Supply, Mailroom, Purchasing, Unit Secretary and THEN worked my way through nursing school...soooooooo, I have never forgotten where I came from..

    Lastly, could I request some help from my fellow nurses..to retrieve my head as lora suggested; Do I need a neurosurgeon or a proctologist???

    OK to everybody involved in this little escapade of a thread.

    1st........lets not change this topic into something else (i.e. the male vs female issue). That was lame mito, I work in the US and am male, and know female nurses more competent than some physicians, and the same for males. The funny thing is mito, just like Lora you assume (i.e. all posts releted to trashing are from females).

    2nd - The Topic loud mouth Americans is what brought me in here, to see why we are such? Yet there was nothing, nadda no base for this topic, therefore clearly showing Lora's intelligance level. Cutting back down on her is not going to help, every reply by her has clearly been rude and obnoxious.

    3rd - The only way to deal with Lora, is to not further reply to this topic/thread.....and let it fall to the bottom, unless she wishes to converse with herself. For me this is my last post/reply to a Lora topic.......I'm out

    The other me says thankyou. No I have never been to America. So why you ask can I make such harsh comments? I wish I had never done it. It was my first time looking at the posts and I couldn't believe what I saw. Constant ******** thats what I saw. I had a look at this sight to hopefully gain some helpful information( I have had some!)since I am "still wet behind the ears". Bye Bye. by theboss:
    either susy k is going soft or im going nuts! huh maybe both !!haha i finally agree with what she had to say !! lora there was no ill-intent there.
    as for mito i dont think he ment to be a goober, just maybe trying to be funny , not male vs female..
    lora you had another post that i responded to, i think i like that person better!! take heed from the advice several gave you!! learn to hold your tongue, and temper...
    i am also curious have you ever been to america ???? well just my 2 cents !

    Again, thank you Rick. You took the words right out of my fingers. I have yet to reply to a negative post such as the one initiated here, but I was amazed at the number of responses in such a short time-frame.

    The following is not meant to be construed as offensive, mean-spirited, or whatever negative connotation may be applied.

    First of all, this was post was initiated by a nursing student. The point is, while SOME nursing students (in this country) are given a small taste of what nursing is REALLY like, they are protected by a blanket of security through a small number of assignments and supervised actions. Thus, I know of no nursing student who could speak intelligently (from experience) of what it is truly like to be a RN or LPN for a number of years. (Although there are many student nurse techs and CNAs who do have a much better idea than those who have never worked in a hospital before).

    Secondly, this post was initiated by a nursing student WHO HAS NEVER WORKED IN THE U.S. Thus, she hasn't the slightest clue about what people are "********" about. As my English friend (who has been an RN for 30+ years) told me a couple of years ago, nursing in the US is more than retrieving "a cup of hot tea and a warm wash cloth for the patient every morning". (Again, that is not meant to be offensive. I'm not pretending to know [or even care] what nursing is like in England).

    The point is this: "Let it go". Of course you have every right to respond to every post in any way you desire, but why would dignify ignorance with a response? Is it not a waste of your time and energy? Let it die...let it die before it has a chance to take on a life of it's own
