    Never masturbate with a wood dowling rod.

    Never throw a baby rattle snake in the front of the pickup to take home with you.

    Never drink Pinesol

    Never soak towels in bleach then lay them on your legs for hours

    Never put bee bees in your penis (I don't have one so not a problem there) to be a sexual dynamo all night

    Never let a prostitute shoot you and your wife up with Heroin

    Never try to get away from a police dog..they are quicker and from what I have seen, have sharp teeth.

    Never let your child teeth on balloons

    Dont ever get loaded and go to bed in the same bed with your other loaded friends and your 2 month old baby.

    Never get into a road rage incident and go head to head with someone who has a 357 magnum in their hand.

    Never leave your 3 yr old daughter with a convicted child molestor that you fell in love with while he was in prision, who you are now supporting

    Wow I have learned a lot!! Erin

    PS more than I ever really wanted to know..

    I can only guess that would are a couple more

    Never walk in front of your brother when he is practicing his golf swing. (Very sad outcome on that one)

    Never beat your 2 yr old child senseless and TRY to tell the ER nurse that he fell off the swingset!!!!

    Never try to spit at or bite the ER nurse unless you want a bite block in your mouth and an 18 gauge in the back of your hand..

    Think that about covers it!!

    Re: the rattler..........Never get out of the pickup and bend over to make sure you killed the rattler you stopped on top of.

    Never reach in the pumphouse in the dark to see if that hissing noise is the pump leaking.

    Never try apple seeds ....see BB reference above.

    Never climb a homemade deerstand while drunk 'cause you don't know nobody who ever fell outta one. (2-3 quads a season at my hospital).

    Don't jump off the bridge into the river that was "real high here last year." see quad above

    Hmmmm...I'm torn between jealousy and thankfullness that your patients have taught you more! :chuckle

    Never...NEVER...hide your weed in a toothbrush holder and stick it up your anus and think it's a safe hiding place from the security officers in a prison. It could get stuck!!

    Yep the rattler one got add to the story..

    After the baby rattler has bitten your friend and he throws it to you, DON'T Try to catch it!

    And to EMS:

    NEVER bring the baby rattler into the ER in a coffee can alive and open the top allowing the snake to jump out and slither down the hall..while nurses are screaming all over the place...

    And of course on the 4th of July...

    Never play "catch" with an M80 or use your lips to "hold " the M80 while you are lighting it...UGH, what a mess.. **

    ** Work a couple of 4th of Julys in the ER and you too will be in favor of banning is amazing WHERE people will put them**

    Again...WOW!! I have learned some valuable lessons..of course most of these things I would have never even considered anyone would do!!! Reality check, I guess!!

    here are some ob things I have learned:

    Never get your Depo-Provera in Mexico.

    Never assume you are sterile just because you didn't get pregnant with your last 3 lovers.

    Never take your goldfish out of the bowl and play with it on your tummy because it my "accidently" swim up your vagina.

    Never assume that cute little fish tattoo on your abdomen will stay cute when stretched by 9 months of pregnancy.

    Never stay with a man you can't get to leave the bar long enough to come to your baby's delivery, even if he makes frequent calls saying he will be there in just a minute.

    Never bring your husband and your current boyfriend to the same delivery.

    Oh boy, you have all sure learned a lot - here are some things I have learned....

    Never walk on a train track while high on meth...

    Always wear safty googles while playing paint ball/or checking out the paintball gun....

    Don't jump off a 2 story building to escape from the police because your boyfriend to whom you have a restraining order is visiting for a booty call...

    You can get a lot of customers (prostitution) even though you are a pt in the hospital, have 2 t-packs draining copious amts of pus from your chronically infected s/p lami...

    Man was not meant to fly...
