    When asked by a nurse manager who never ever works on the floor if I wanted to come in on my day off or stay over for another shift: " NO, I would rather have a pap smear done with a rake". Does that convey my answer to you?

    My response has been "I'd rather take out my own tonsils with a fork."

    I hear the lullaby being played over the intercom to announce a new arrival and think, "There's yet another person in this hospital less needy than my patients."

    Beats my thoughts one night, when I knew a local crackhead was probably going to deliver that night: "Future Seeker Society Member". Sigh.

    I had a pt call the other day and order a coffee with 3 sugars. If I'm going to be a waitress, do I get to ask for a tip?

    We can see a Hilton from our hospital, maybe I should start offering to take them over there.
    You know, I'm sure if they would do it for themselves they could. But they're in an unsual position with no way of getting some of the things they would find comforting at home. This isn't communist Russia (I speak from experience) where a hospital means that we're here to serve your most basic survival needs (not even that usually) and then kick you out. If you find it beneath you, you have techs who can assist. But I wouldn't roll my eyes at a nice patient who just wants a cup of coffee to help him get thorugh the day (and maybe be less cranky).

    Sorry, I know that came off snappy.

    I thought thread was supposed to be funny and lighthearted. Can at least one thread not have the tut tut post in it?
