this special snowflake is much more careful about where she puts her fingers after she uses glue.

- May 18, '12 by OCNRN63Quote from healthstarif you think femininity is defined by wearing makeup, then there's no point in further discussion.there are so many nurses out there who just don't give a damn about their looks, makeup hasn't killed anyone, it is designed to be used. that's what makes us feminine. anyone can find 5 -10 minutes for themselves . you don't have to look like rainbow, use nude, neutral colors. this bothers me the most: nurses who wear super tight scrubs, first i can see your thongs/ underwear a mile away, second i can see your cellulites, 3r buy better scrubs!

the point being that clean, reasonably groomed and non-obtrusive is the key ... plenty of room for personal style otherwise.

- May 18, '12 by bluemushroomI promised myself I wouldn't respond to this thread, but I just couldn't resist.
Quote from healthstarI brush my teeth, shower, use deodorant, comb my hair, and wear clean, ironed, properly-fitting scrubs. I guess none of this matters, though. I'll never look as professional as you, I must not care about my appearance as much as you care about yours, and I most certainly am not feminine all because I don't wear makeup. Damn! All my efforts are wasted! :icon_rollThere are so many nurses out there who just don't give a damn about their looks, makeup hasn't killed anyone, it is designed to be used.

Quote from carrie_cYay for me! I'm soooo trashy!I also hate tattoos. I will probably get beat up for saying this, but they are just trashy and ugly and I don't know why anyone wants to get them. There. Let the beatings begin.
Aw, hell. I don't know why I even got into this one. It's always the same thing. I won't bother to go into the whole "Tattoos don't make me trashy and unprofessional, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah." It would just be beating a poor, dead, badly decomposed horse at this point.

- May 18, '12 by ixchel3 questions:
1. Did Dolly Parton die?
2. What does irregardless mean, exactly? Is it the same as regardless? Or maybe the opposite?
3. What is the difference between a g-string and a thong? And how do I not know this?
- May 18, '12 by ixchelThis post was totally worth bringing here directly in its entirety.
Quote from RhiaRN75The scrubs were cute. Really. A pretty pale yellow and a good color for the skintone.
They were the perfect size... for a five year old!! I cannot fully describe just how bad it was. I'll try... it's been on my mind for some time now and maybe I can finally purge the image from my memories.
The girls were cemented into place and flattened to the extent that I had to wonder if circulation was impaired. No improper cleavage could show.... maybe if the short sleeves were not similarily constricting they may have peaked out from there to gasp for air, but they were allowed no such opportunity.
The pants were very fashionable and, unfortunately, a better fit. Upon sitting, the top rode up in an valiant effort to provide for blood flow, and the pants had a low enough waist to have no hope of.... shall we say.... covering the slack.
The rear view was likewise near indescribable. The thoracic area was tighter then the best made military bed. There was the appearance of a growth above the middle of the shoulderblades as the material fought bravely for a little repreive from the strain. Around the back waist area, there was what I initially believed to be the beginning of the fabric finally giving way but as the shift went on I realized it was the elastic gather- stretched in a manner sure to make a contortionist blush.
I did my best not to look. I did amuse myself by watching the expressions on the faces of others, but that did not last for long as I was afraid I'd totally lose it. I. Did. Not. Say. A. Word. I eventually avoided eye contact with everyone for the entire shift. At one point I sat down to check something on the computer, glanced over, and didn't make that mistake again. I cleaned, I stocked, I reorganized the rooms.... anything to keep me busy and out of the line of fire. There was no possible way I could address the issue in a manner that could have led to anything close a good outcome or resolution of the situation.
A few nights later, we had a slow moment and someone tried to bring up the subject. "Hey Rhia, do you like yellow?" No, I do not. Yellow is for caution, and that is all I'll say or hear of that situation. "Awww.... c'mon, didn't you notice..." Nope, I interrupted.... and I'll say STEMI and QUIET five times in a row every fifteen minutes if you persist with this line of questioning. Another said "Now, it couldn't have been that bad!" I sighed. I took a deep breath.
"Ok, ok, that bad. We'll behave."
It's been a long time. I am still afraid I'll go to work one day and see those scrubs again.
- May 18, '12 by GitanoRN<----- i'm right with you on the trashy, since i have a tattoo even though no one can see it
Quote from bluemushroom
yay for me! i'm soooo trashy!
- May 18, '12 by GitanoRNQuote from ixchelhere's the answer to your first question from the the lady herself....3 questions:
1. did dolly parton die?
2. what does irregardless mean, exactly? is it the same as regardless? or maybe the opposite?
3. what is the difference between a g-string and a thong? and how do i not know this?
dolly parton: i'm still not dead singer fed up of rumors of her passing.
regarding the other two questions, i'm afraid i can't help you with those
