OK, I'm no prude. We have lots of fun and I can be as ribald at times, there's lots of humor in nursing, especially in ER. But, what is it with some of my coworkers, who want to talk about pretty personal stuff at the nurses station? There has been more than one recent conversation glorifying masturbation, as an example. Then the instigator wants to make sure everyone in the group also indulges, asking each person, and goes on to vilify those totally crazy people who claim to maybe disapprove, not participate, or simply don't want to discuss it. No, my dear co-workers, a vibrator is not a necessity of life that every woman must own.
Is this a generational thing? In my day certain subject matters were off limits. I've tried to point out that, really, certain things ARE NOT to be discussed. Like telling the doctor that he has a small member. And, I'd like to see less profanity tossed around. There are some co-workers who toss around the F-bomb like I say 'you know' or 'um'.
I honestly think it's generational. My coworkers are all over 40 for the most part except for a couple of very young new grads.
What I object to are People wanting to convert me at work.
