    LOL!!! Great thread!!!! It's so funny to hear what yall really think!!! I will make it a point to TRY not go around my male co-workers and talk about female issues!! haha....but you know...I do love it when you help me out
    Whats sad is that we tru;y think and feel this way. Just yesterday a pts daughter came in that were really, ahem, great looking, but as a professional person I was not allowed to say, "Your daughters are hot!" I later told her (pt) that her daughters were really nice and pretty. Sounds kinda quaint, but trying to be a professional single guy around all of these cute girls.

    ...you use the employee bathroom and notice someone got some water spray on the toilet seat from washing/drying their hands - so you make sure you clean off the toilet seat because you KNOW that the next person who uses the bathroom with blame the only male nurse on the floor for peeing on the seat!
    Don't know if this has been quoted already (there are many pages to this thread!!) but I had to laugh out loud at this. The soap dispenser in the bathroom in the staff lounge is right over the toilet, so soap and water are often dribbled onto the seat which is often wet when I go into the bathroom... I always make sure I wipe it off!

    ...You've wasted hours of time looking for Large gloves in patient's rooms
    After working as the only male among the nursing/PCA staff on a unit for a year, the number of times I found two boxes of smalls and one medium (or vice versa) as I reached over to put on a pair of gloves!

    - You know you're a male RN when you have to work hard to suppress your annoyance when you have to perform a lengthy procedure in a patient's room who chose to watch a soap or some other thing like that when you're trying to keep abreast of the score of an important post-season game (and every other patient seems to be watching the game).

    Bloody 5 minute editing rule....

    I wanted to add to the above post that I have heard from patients about nurses who have shirked their duties while giving an inordinate attention to a game on tv. This, of course, is totally not cool.

    For me, when a game is on tv in a patient's room, it provides me with an opportunity to start a conversation with the patient, and a quick check at one point is all I need to keep abreast of the game.

    Well see thats why you have to do what the guys were talking about earlier, wear you scrubs in public!!! It's hot!!!! It's so hard to find guys that are stable and have a good job and especially work in the health field... melts our hearts lol! Even though we automatically assume your caring, sensitive lol

    - There's no line for the bathroom during breaks from training classes.

    - You're kid asks for you, not his mother, when he's sick.

    - You always sign up to work Valentine's day, but never Super Bowl Sunday.

    - You always have to tell your wife you're going out with "friends from work" when what you really mean is "a dozen hot chicks who are ten years my junior".

    What is this the He-Man woman haters club? Why does it matter to you if women post on the "male thread"? Talk about being discriminated against.... Maybe they are trying to make civilized conversation with you!?! Ever thought of that?

    Gentle reminder, everyone...this is a male based forum from a male perspective as it relates to nursing. Our female colleagues may of course visit, read, and post here too...especially if it adds to or invites productive dialog. Let's be respectful.

    Moving forward.

    BTW, Sorry If my response came off wrong- I was only joking about the he-man woman hater thing too. [Little Rascals]...

    I do like a guys perspective like I've said before...
