    Teacher: Are you sure you don't have some in your purse?
    Me: No.

    Really, just because I am a nurse -I am responsible for carrying a pharmacy in my purse????

    I get this asked of me all the time...

    C'MON NOW!!!

    i got asked for hearing aid batteries this am. i told the person (who i love - great co worker!) that even if i did have them they would be older than the hills and probably the wrong size. We have a pharmacy literally a 1 minute car drive away. She can go on her lunch if she wants.

    Well we've got a fun new stomach bug at the school. I've had three kids vomit in my office. One little guy projectile vomited on my desk and all over the garbage can. Excuse me while I repeatedly sanitize everything.

    Staff asks me for cold medication and allergy medication, despite the fact that I have sent emails that I stock neither of these things.

    And I get asked ALL the time if I have an ice pack handy when I happen to be out of the my office going to check my mailbox or something else of the like. Nope, I do not carry my office around with me, folks. I always get a sigh in response. C'mon!
