    I have to vote swipping drug rep pens even though I am not a nurse lol. I work a mini storage and we have drug reps who store their products in our climate controll facility and they give us pens often. A couple of them have followed me home lol.

    Is it good or bad that I can relate to every one of these?
    This made me laugh

    I think that it can be good, simply for the laugh. Most importantly, it shows that we are all human.

    Once we went to dinner with some friends and the guy, a truck driver tried to have a gross out contest with me. I won and he won't play again

    I think in all fairness you'd have to add the ability to clean up dog or cat (or any other living thing) feces, vomit, urine etc. without getting grossed out. Hey, cleaning up excrement is all in a day's work!

    hmm think I have done all of them except hang ny stethascope over the mirror! my family think the worst is that they get no sympathy over injuries unless death is immentient or a limb severed!! my dad has banned nurse talk at meal times- he shouldnt have married a nurse! and both my sister and I are nurses.......so what do you expect?? maybe thats why he only invites us both round, together, at christmas!!
