    I would say PRUDE! Wait till you get somewhere & everyone wants to start diagnosing you.

    Co-Worker-"Hey tango, I noticed you squirming a little bit on the toilet earlier"
    Tango- "What?? You were watching me take a dump? (we have open stalls)
    Co-Worker-- "Yeah man, you should be drinking more water"
    Tango- HUH?

    I think you need to get over it. If you do become a nurse you are going to hear some of the crudest, rudest, most personal, sickest, nastiest, funniest most hilarious stories (all of them true).

    I have no problem hearing it.

    I'm NOT going to talk about it. I just don't care to share my personal information, no matter what it is.

    No you are not a prude. Like you, I can listen to it all day long, but from classmates, co-workers, peers, uh no thanks. They need to save that conversation for someone, (Dr., nurse, friend) who actually needs to know, or for some strange reason, wants to know. Way too much info for me, I don't care about your flow, your bowels, etc.....People always surprise me. I must tell you, I don't discuss these things with ANYONE unless it's a Dr, or Nurse, I mean , why would I???? Weird
