  16. Any School Nurses out there who travel abroad every yr during the summer?
    I think with a 'savings jar' for the yearly dream trip, you probably could travel-especially if you aren't paying for multiple people to go, like I would have to with a family. I bet you could get it...

    Or just stop, look them dead in the eye, and say, "Thanks. You just made my day!" without a smile, but continue the eye contact until it becomes uncomfortable. Then, turn and walk out. Sure,...
