Ok, I'm going to get this off my chest...
I have a clinical partner who is in his early 30's. He has 2 kids and a wife.
When I first met him, he seemed motivated and very intelligent, and i wanted to partne with someone who was serious.
Now I'm seeing a side of him that i don't like at all.
He never studies for tests, and then acts like its no big deal when he fails bc "they are going to throw out questions anyway."
It seems like nursins school is not all that important to him. Whenever things get a little tough he'll always revert back to the fact that he has enough on his plate already (being husband and a father of two). This dude doesnt work, and ALWAYS leaves school as soon as class is over and never stays to study or do the wok we need to do (unless he needs me to help him with an assignment and its convienient fo him)
I feel like he only cares about himself. If he needs help he'll call me 3-4 times but when i need help and try to call or text him it's "family time" and he cant be bothered. he'll say things like:
"i have a life outside of nursing school
" and "i just gotta take time out for myself" and "i can't stress myself out" "school is not my priority" and stupid stuff like that. It just irks me.
Now, Im in my late 20's, single as a dollar bill, and i don't have any children. nursing school is my life right now and i work VERY hard. Maybe i would understand better if i were married and had children. Maybe I'm just being petty and i need to get over myself..... but right now i feel like he's a lazy, selfish, douchebag who willl never be there for me (as far as school is concerned) if i needed his help. if he needs help, i make sure to be there bc i would want the same if the roles were reversed. he could care less.
He complains about everything, and doesnt put the work in to even justify complaining.
Even in clinical, i feel like i do all the work and he just sits there chatting with the patient.
a part of me wants to rip him a new butt hole and tell him he's a lazy piece of garbage, but im sure that would only create a bigger problem...
I don't know what to do and im very frustrated.
too late to change partners btw
