  1. "You take the BUS to work!"
    I'd ask him how much he spent on gas when it was $4 a gallon. In one month I spent enough on gas to make a car payment on a Mercedes! Not only are you saving money, but you're also saving the...

  3. Bad medicine - a real doctor dissects the TV doctors

  9. Bathroom Inservicing
    We have that too. We used to have funnies posted too but management decided that laughing while peeing is a no-no. They also used to have a LARGE poster of a man pointing his finger at with the...

  14. Criminal Background Check on Yourself
    I've always gotten a form letter and then sent that to the address listed on the form, they in turn send it to whomever I address it to. I'd ask the school.

    I've done 5 8's and I'm doing 3 12's now and will never go back. I do my shifts in a row and believe it or not that helps me. I do feel that some weeks all I do on my days off is sleep and then by...

  17. Do you take any stimulants?
    Two Red Bulls, a Mt. Dew, and a large cap with four shots of espresso. I'm someone who needs A LOT of caffeine before I feel any kind of jolt. I don't do this regularly though, only when I don't...

  18. Funeral leave policies
    For parents, spouse and kids we get 2 days off. I think that seems a bit light. If you lost a spouse would you be able to go back to work 2 days later? Sure, they can't have someone off for months...

  22. What do you think about Physician Assistants?
    I've never been to a PA, but one routinely makes rounds for ortho patients when the dr is busy in surgery, office, etc. He is very very nice, more so than the dr and doesn't come with 'that' ego...

  23. Background Check and Credit check???
    I check mine once a year and I've never had my employment history on it. Strange that it showed up on yours. It's a catch 22 - you need a job to pay your debts but you can't get hired if you have...
