Don't you hate the arrogant students? - page 6

Today was the nurse orientation. Some of the students in the orientation came off as very arrogant to me. The funny thing about it, is that I did not see them as special or better. To tell you the... Read More

    :angryfire Why you people all attacking me?? I just said that I dislike arrogant people that I seen at school. And the students I seen had no reason to be arrogant to me. I do not even want to know them! What you people want me to do? Bow down to those arrogant people and tell them how better they are? Sheesh, maybe you like arrogant people, but I find it a turn off!!:angryfire

    Anyway, I like making friends with the good looking people who are cool and to the regular students who are not arrogant. I belive that is normal and that is not high school!! They acted like they were in high school and it was not me. :angryfire
    I think the problem with your postings is that you are obviously not a native english speaker. Your sentence structure like "Why you people all attacking me", etc. is not grammatically correct.

    Ummmm.... as cool and good looking as you are, I'm surprised you don't realize this but... referring to people as good looking or "regular" is quite arrogant.

    Main Entry: ar-ro-gance
    Pronunciation: 'ar-&-g&n(t)s
    Function: noun
    : a feeling or an impression of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or presumptuous claims

    You see, you are under the impression athat beind good looking (and cool) is superior to being regular. That is arrogance as you can see by the definition above. And by the way, where would severely disfigured or incontinent with multiple decubitis(pl?) or grossly obese or edematous, etc.etc. fall. These will be your patients.

    Out of curiosity, can you be cool if you're only of regular appearance? What if your downright ugly, can you be cool then?

    I suggest you look in the mirror (not for your cool and good looking appearance but your character). Your patients will thank you. You will grow as a human being.

    Jumping off my soapbox now.

    What happens when you have to care for someone who's not good looking and is arrogant? Will you tell someone less-worthy than yourself to go take care of the patient?

    Thankfully *I* am extremelly good-looking and non-arrogant, so you would have no problem with me Hopefully. (insert extreme sarcasm here please)

    I kind of got that vibe, too. I think he is young and of foreign persuasion. Maybe we do need to ease up a bit and see if this is so?

    I am wondering where "HOPEFULLY" has run off to. I have taken the liberty of reading his other posts and I am convinced that English is his 2 (maybe more like 4th) language. When he mentioned "cool people" maybe he meant "nice". I will never forget the time a German exchange student asked me if I was "sporty"...found out he meant "athletic".

    I'd love to agree, but there was the line about women he wouldn't want to date ... as if that should have some bearing on their worthiness. :chuckle

    Leaving this one alone now, although I am worthy...

    Ditto on the reality check. If had an ego during orientation. Hell, we made it, others didn't. We're the ones who got in...I felt dang proud of that! There were groups that intimidated me. These folks had classes together since they started at school, very close groups. But you become part of the group, and you're one huge dysfunctional family. Deal with it. -Andrea

    Hard telling. Like Tweetie says, it is easy to misinterpret if there is a language barrier. I could be wrong, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, as it all just seemed to be too bizarre to be at first glance. Maybe he'll come back and explain himself.
