    I work a ft job and a contingent...I am fried.

    I pick up mostly because I am greedy. I use the extra money to contribute my 403b and Roth to the IRS max, pay for international trips and pad my efund.

    But I think I'm going to slow down. I'm feeling crispy.

    Roll my eyes (inwardly).

    I find it pathetic when anyone who isn't a LPN or RN calls themselves a nurse.

    You want the title, get the license.

    Well what does the N in LPN stand for?

    Of course LPNs are nurses. Anyone who says any differently doesn't know any better.

    I have an absolutely horrible nurse manager who I've thought about reporting to HR. She has a history of sending long emails that belittle and call out other people. She has threatened to call us out in front of our peers, she has called us lazy and told us that the partients wants and needs should be responded to immediately, never mind we are severely understaffed and over worked. She has also complained about her job and the fact that she is on thin ice with her bosses. She has also shared that she has multiple job offers with WAY higher salaries. To me, sharing all of that information is just unprofessional and to belittle people like that is uncalled for. She has said some other things that have made me want to report her to hr, but I'm not high up enough in the food chain for it to matter.

    Thanks. You make us all sound like mental cases. Some of us are actually just as well-read and intelligent and stable mentally as you are.

    Then there are pro vaxxers who are sick enough to skim their patients pain meds and weak enough to let nurses' aides run the show and endure no breaks day in and day out.

    How many of these deeply disquiet anti vaxxers do you know?

    It's easy to try to cheaply discredit your opponents and never give them a thorough, genuine hearing. You don't want to get a bad reputation by actually studying their point of view.

    Maybe their real cause of dissatisfaction is seeing autism rates skyrocket or seeing Guillian-Barre after flu shots that don't even prevent flu.
    Please tell me you don't work in healthcare.

    Firstly, there is NO evidence that states that vaccines are causing higher rates in autism. NONE. It is dangerous to even spread such fallacy or give it lip service as you have done.

    Secondly, pot meet kettle. You attack pro-vax nurses visciously in this post with something that is completely irrelevant to the topic. Fortunately for the pro-vax, there are hundreds and thousands of studies proving the efficacy of flu-shots.

    Thirdly, GBS is extremely rare. Should people stop taking all meds because of the slim chance of an extreme side effect occurring?

    And finally, have you talked to some elderly people who lived through devastating illnesses such as polio, MMR, etc? I bet you are very young and didn't witness such effects. Maybe if you did, you would change your tune.

    I don't know about conspiracy theory, but many are highly uneducated and paranoid about science and pride themselves on being "all-natural."

    And if you talk to most elderly people who actually lived through polio and other illnesses that have been eradicated by vaccines, they will say that immunizations are God-sent. These young people haven't got a clue how fortunate they are to live in today's times instead of the thirties.

    I'm sure FDR would agree.
