Hmmmmm....sounds like ageism and ignorance. personally I am sick of working with a bunch of 20 something "nurses" that sit on their i- phones the entire shift, hide until management is around and ignore the patients...oh yeah and often refuse to do the "dirty work." To quote a great line from "casino"-"you better check your loop..."
Hmmmm...where I work its very simple...its called PTO...I earn it...I use it whenever I need too...I do not...nor will I ever give a reason...as is my right...yes-workers rights still actually exist in some places-It gets really old really fast hearing all the stories of people that..."havent called out in years"...that "sacrifice so much for their coworkers working short staffed" etc..yippie for them. Sadly that type of mentality only bolsters management mistreatment of workers...shortstaffing is a management issue that in my opinion causes the burnout that in most cases turns into further call outs...
Arrive early...sit in car...write
Trailer home plumber...as in crawling underneath to remove the old and disgusting rotted wood under the "bathrooms" utterly disgusting, but bills had to be paid!
Coffee...and never sit down.. Keep moving!
Do your time...keep a sense of yourself...and the surrealistic horror will be done before you know it...don't expect any semblance of logic or fairness or anything human...you are a number in a bureaucratic system propagated by outdated modalities ...oh yes...P testing is big money...never lose site of that...you will survive intact...endurance is key...forget all the sugar coated platitudes...this is as real as it gets
In that inappropriate joke of a rehab that i got forced into (manipulation anyone?) some girl said "you've had weight loss surgery, you must be a food addict." Wut!? That's quite the leap of logic.
I reckon it's just an example of the 12 step thing gone awry. As in without knowing ANYTHING about a person, assumptions are made that everyone is addicted to something and that a social activity with a religious bent will fix everything. um...nope.
My opinion, for what it's worth is that people find like company in all sorts of things....church, sports teams, AA...what have you. Even subtracting the prayer aspect, I rather think that forcing me to attend a 12 step function is akin to forcing me to be on a football team. I don't play the game, i don't understand the game and I hate the loud, crowded noisy atmosphere. I'm bored and would rather be doing almost anything else. So extending this logic, a condition for my state issued license is to engage in a useless activity that i don't understand and don't want to.
