- 4Sep 7, '12 by monkeelouiseTrue Story- My sister and I (we are both nurses) were eating lunch at a restraunt. This lady walked by us on the way to the ladies room, she lost her cookies allover the floor beside our table and ran into the bathroom. We glanced over, looked at the horrified waitress, ordered her to get towels to clean up the mess and kept eating our lunch. We were actually giggling at the other patrons that were gagging and jumping up from their seats, while I noticed the waitstaff huddled behind us looking at us like we were the crazy ones.

In the back of your mind thinking, "I'd get some awesome flashback on those!"You stop the microwave before it beeps because it reminds you of the pump you ran to 35 times during your shift.While washing your hands in a public restroom, you notice someone come out of the stall and not even look at the sink. Gross!You speedwalk everywhere.You carry sani-wipes everywhere!!!You take your grandpa to the doc for a check-up and he introduces you to the entire waiting room as "this is my grand daughter. She's a nurse. She'll be the boss next week!"

When you're watching an abdominal surgery being performed around lunch-time and all you and your fellow student/nurse can think of is how much different pieces of anatomy look like weird versions of food.
(Hysterectomy - removed ovaries looked like deflated grapes.)
