  2. Would you accept this call out excuse?
    I'm sorry, but I would be offended if someone told me that my cousin "is not a close enough relative." Who are you to say that? Also, I find you to be very intrusive by asking for such details. It...

  4. Should I be upset?  Or am I a Diva?

  9. Seriously?!?!
    Exactly. If they're drug seeking in the ER, I doubt they're ready for rehab. Plus, it's soooooo difficult to get any sort of CD tx with or without insurance. But that's another thread...

  10. Teachers and Nurses create the big one...
    That is your opinion-not a fact. In my opinion, nurses overall are way too overworked, underpaid and disrespected. At least my hospital's union looks out for us nurses. And no, I'm not lazy and...

  16. Peds nurse with no kids
    I totally take it as a compliment. And it means so much to me for a peds parent to tell me that. They are so protective and concerned for their children, so their words mean a lot.
