    I'm sorry. This problem is an emergency on what planet?

    I know you have been waiting a long time, but we see the sick patients first.

    I apologize for giving you the impression I care.

    No, we do not routinely give narcotics for hang nails.

    If this were a true emergency I would not be laughing quite so loudly.

    Yes, you are the physician, and I am "only a nurse."

    Yes, you write the orders, and I make sure the orders are followed.

    Nevertheless, you would do well to remember that I am 6'4", 250 lbs, and spent 14 years in the US Army, and that was before I was a nurse. I spent that time learning and doing things that were intentionally designed to inflict pain and physical damage. Yell, throw another temper tantrum, or belittle another of my colleagues, and I might just have a flashback.

    Kevin,
    I saw a bumper sticker the other day. "If it weren't for flashbacks I'd have no memory at all." I think I need a t-shirt with that printed on it. Gary

    Kevin - come work with me!!! Also, I had to laugh, our waiting time in the ER is extending to six hours some nights (that's what happens when you're always three to five nurses short) and people are calling 911 from our triage phone asking for ambulance to take them to another hospital. Oh well...
