What Baffles You? - page 3

So I have come across this a few times. I am holding a straw to a persons lips and they drink and drink and drink and pretty soon they are waving their hands for me to stop. Stop what?! You don't... Read More

    I'm baffled when people go in for surgery FROM HOME who have not bathed or showered or even washed their hands in a sink... apparently in a week. Seriously?

    Why fully abled people cannot wipe their hiney's. Suddenly their arms aren't long enough.

    I want to know how a six pound baby can produce seven pounds of poop into one newborn sized diaper.

    Moo ha ha - I am still cracking up from the OP's post! So true and so funny and I still don't know why they do that. Perhaps it's along the lines of: They have given full control of their destiny over to the medical establishment? Including sipping because a medical person places a straw there? I don't mind helping and I really appreciate the trust patients put in me, but it is pretty funny!

    What baffles me is why you are holding the straw for someone who can wave their hands around.

    If that someone had unsteady hands that could still wave, but would most likely spill if trying to hold the cup, I'd be holding it too.

    LMAO at this thread, especially about the water. I've been accused of "trying to drown" my patients when all I'm doing is holding the cup...maybe sometimes the straw, but still I'm not controlling their ability to stop drinking.

    Even a newborn baby knows when to stop...

    I wonder what would happen if I started yanking straws out of peoples mouths while they were still sucking on it. I am thinking... water all over their face.
