People say the funniest things in school... - page 3

Miscommunication happens more often than we like - especially while in school. Sometimes communication between teacher and students get lost. The teacher or the student ends up saying something unexpected which in turn makes... Read More

    During the abd assessment lecture, I was saying that "walking and water" takes care of most constipation problems, and a student thought I said "walking on water??!!" Told wasn't sure but I didn't think Jesus was constipated.......we all laughed for awhile.

    Not nursing school related.,, but one of my ex friends was watching a documentary on aids when I came over. First thing she says to me was " is it seriously true you can only get HIV/aids through body fluids?!?! All this time I've been so nervous at work because I thought you could just get it from standing near them" (she worked in a blood donation clinic, where lots of low income people came in a lot just for the money). I was pretty shocked to say the least!!! Lol

    it is a centuries old practice. Long before the advent of pills or suppositories women have been shoving strange things in there to combat pain issues lol. Who got the idea originally? Now that's a question. I would love to ask them "what made you even think about that?"
    I'm sure that it is true. And you are right, there are all sorts of things that make you wonder who was the first to think that was a good idea. Look at oysters, they look like something you suction out of someone. Yet, one day someone thought "Hey, that looks tasty."

    Ok, three things that I have to share for now. Two are school related, one is not.

    1) There is a girl in my Micro class right now. From context clues I gather that she spent one or more summers in Greece, which is admirable and enviable, yes. However... whenever we discuss any topic in lecture, she (without raising her hand) interjects "In Greece they do that like X" or "When I was in Greece, I saw that X was the usual practice". 80% of the time it is related to what we are talking about (but the relevance is questionable). The other 20% of the time it's off topic and clearly just serves her need to remind everyone that she has been to Greece. Non-related, she tends to also sway lecture conversation into often interesting, but completely tangental side-discussions about bacteria or chemistry. She asks lots of questions but I suspect that she doesn't actually understand the answers she gets, based upon the questions she asks to follow up. Fortunately, she is not in any of my labs.

    2) There was a middle-aged woman in my A&P I class some time ago that worked in a hospital to some capacity (in a receptionist role, AFAIK). She had a ginormous man-hating chip on her shoulder, and often talked during lecture about how men don't belong in a medical setting because they are all autistic and impersonal. Interestingly, she was also probably the rudest, bitchiest, whiniest person I've ever encountered in school. She drove everyone away from her and then complained to the teacher(s) that we all had it out for her. She then dropped the class, and a month or so after I saw her in the hallway, I said "hi", and she responded with "f**k you".

    3) My girlfriend's roommate had recently gotten married. Shortly after, she was poised to go back to school to finally get her degree in "art therapy". Nonetheless, she has had a very... shall we say "theological and non-scientific" upbringing, and has probably never dug deep into the whole "birds and bees" thing. One day she was talking about going to school, but didn't want it to be interrupted by eh... "starting a family". Her close friend told her, and I quote "It takes a long long time to make a baby. You probably have two or three years before you even have to think about that. Besides, it's not like you're some [racial comment] Welfare Mom... if you are going to school to better yourself, Jesus will guide your future and make everything happen just like it should."

    My girlfriend has since found a different place to live.


    And of course the two bonus ones that everyone's hear before- I brought up how many students are "I want to be a nurse but I'm not going to put up with poo" and "I'm just getting into Nursing so that I can marry a doctor".

    Of course out of the many dumb things my classmates have asked or said, I cannot think of a single one to post. Eh.

    I do have to say though, Skips, that your name and avatar have me rolling. I LOVE that show!
    FINALLY!!! Someone knows what it is! xD I love that show, too.

    There was a girl in my developmental psychology class that told our class of 80 strangers how her brother got laid, and consequently how his genital piercing got caught onto his girlfriend's genital piercing. I don't remember why she was telling us that story, but it was hilarious.

    Despite having a job unrelated to patient care, she wore scrubs to school because "they were cute!" She was a real piece of work, but I much preferred her to the failed pre-med student who sat behind me and constant ridiculed everything that everybody else said.
