  2. Things you'd LOVE to be able to tell patients, and get away with it.

    I had a very similar experience. But nobody came to the rescue. I guess they must have been understaffed. I ended up waiting 2 hours! At the end I had to be catherized. It filled the pail to the top....

  9. Nobody Likes A Tattle Tail
    My issue is at the other end. I was harassed by coworkers, but bit my lip and moved on. I guess that I'm not the only one that was harassed, and someone must have reported to the supervisor....
