Had a kid bring his wet, bloody tooth and plop it right on my desk. C'mon now! Or the kid that did running knee slide into my office. C'mon now! The ones old enough to cover their mouths... Read More

    If I leave you a detailed message with my direct phone number, why must you text your kid and tell him to tell me to call you back AND, when I do - let it go to voice mail?????????????

    Then, you text him again to have him tell me to call AGAIN, and it goes to voice mail AGAIN!!!

    C'mon Now!!!

    Ugh. My current admin is like that too. Never wrong, and always correcting you just for the sake of correcting you! Even when she is completely wrong!!!

    2nd grader at her second visit of the morning "I forgot to tell you I threw up this morning too, not just yesterday. But no one saw. And I'm dizzy. And my throat hurts."

    Ok, so I do my thing...no fever, drank a whole water bottle and waited 10 minutes...still no throw up, so back to class she goes. I tell her I'm going to walk her there because of the dizziness to see how she does...SHE STARTS LIMPING....ok kid, now I know for sure this is the case of the fibs.

    Day 1 of semester exams---

    Little Darling (a JR in high school): My stomach was bothering me at home. (long story short)I just went to the restroom and have poop on my undies because I had the squirts.

    Me: Okay, do you want me to call GM?

    Little Darling: NO, she said she would not bring me any if it was not bad.

    Me: Well, go to class.

    (This Little Darling has tried the soiled panties trick in the past and was busted because she was lying.)

    C'mon Now.

    Why do they do this?! If I think you're lying to me, I have NO problem checking those soiled clothes to confirm my suspicions! C'mon kid, we're nurses, we've seen, touched, smelled, and dealt with much worse.

    While I was out last year, my boss did just that. Little Darling had come in and pulled the "pee and pooped" card and my boss did check. What a surprise, her undies were dry and clean. I asked her today if I needed to check and she hung her head said, "NO".

    I also recently told GM I would no longer check her head for lice either. She comes in after she has not washed her hair for 3-4 days and her psoriasis is really flaky (not to mention oily and gross feeling) hoping I will send her home for having nits because she has gotten away with it in the past when she was at the alternative campus. She been here for 2 years now you think she would get it. I am not sending you home!!!!

    I started stocking those disposable undies for ladies and leakage. I would have just handed her one and said "ok, you can change. Do you need a plastic bag for your underwear?" Then back to class you go.

    Not really a c'mon now situation but I have to share.

    I had a 3rd grader come in freakishly calm after barfing twice (she came in carrying a trash can her teacher made her take with her). 30 minutes, water drank and...nothing. No fever, no other symptoms. Couldn't get a hold of mom. After 45 minutes I said I was sending her back to class since she hadn't thrown up again and looked fine. I kid you not she stood, held a finger up in the universal sign for "wait" and proceeded to barf again in my trashcan. The secretary was horrified while I sat there and watched her. She then washed out her mouth and calmly sat down. I can't decided if that was amazing timing or she can just barf on command.
