Who the heck makes play dough out of peanut butter? I hope you reported it to admin after you spoke with the teacher.

Sweet Baby Moses.

I just don't get parents that make a big deal about bringing an unopened bottle of advil. "But I don't have any unopened bottles at home......................"

But maybe the 2 cvs's.  walgreens, walmart, target and dollar store you pass on the way to get to the school while picking up your child's daily chick fil a lunch do. Just saying!

I want to know what kind of camp costs $10,000 a summer. 

How long is the camp?

What kinds of things do they do?

Do parents see the kids at all?

So many questions. 

I complain about the increased Church camp price and it's only $196 for a week. 

3 months

Basically normal camp stuff.

Only like twice in the 3 months

These kids were rich as fluff! Like one kid was telling about his private jet and how he went to Hawaii one summer, like what?

Student has been telling her teachers that she's having her appendix out Sunday. Teacher stands in my clinic, with the student, wanting me to call mom this very second to verify student is not scheduled for an appendectomy on Sunday. The student who is laughing and in no obvious pain or discomfort and swears they scheduled it so she wouldn't miss school. All while I'm looking the teacher dead in the eye, saying "appendectomies are an EMERGENCY surgery". 

Teacher left saying "so, you'll call mom?" :banghead:

Oy. And most scheduled surgeries aren't on Sunday.

A student just came in asking for "medical tape" for her teacher. They are doing some sort of art project. 

I wanted, WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BODY, to say that my office is not the art supply store, but I did not want to take my frustrations out on the poor child. So I gave her the thinnest, dinkiest roll of tape I had.

I wanted to add that teachers will believe anything. I once had my accident report book laying open on my desk when I arrived one morning. I asked why. They told me that the kiddo who had barely fallen yesterday and walked around just fine had "broken their spine." The student told them that. And they believed them. EDUCATED PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT A STUDENT WAS WALKING AROUND WITH NO BRACE WITH A BROKEN SPINE. I had to indeed call mom to make sure the snowflake was really okay. Mom about lost her crap when she heard little darling was lying.

I was asked to get gum out of a student's hair (not a nursing task). We don't have peanut butter, which is what I used that one time RJ Junior fell asleep with gum in her mouth.

SHE CAME TO SCHOOL THIS WAY. When I called, the parent said "just cut it out of her hair."

Fortunately our cafeteria has canola oil. That worked.

I had a MS kid tell his entire homeroom that he had measles.  The teacher emailed me "Jack said he has measles.  Should I send him to see you?"  First off, no he doesn't have measles, and secondly if he did this would be an emergency not a nonchalant email.

Actually, there is something called an interval appendectomy where a patient can be treated medically and have the appendix removed a few days later, usually as an outpatient procedure. And there are hospitals that do elective cases on weekends- mine is looking to bulk up staffing to be able to do just that. We simply ran out of time Monday through Friday to meet demand. 

Not saying that’s what’s going on with this situation, but is is a remote possibility.

Hmm, I hadn't heard of those but nice to know they are a thing. 

In this case, it wasn't the case. I did indeed call mom who confirmed the student is keeping her healthy appendix.

Ok, y'all. I live in tick country. I've seen posts here and on other social media saying to put dawn dish soap on a cotton ball, rub it on the tick and it will magically just come off. 

NO. I've done this twice and both times the tick does not come off and actually seems to dig in further. Am I doing something wrong? I mean it seems idiot proof. Cotton ball. Dish soap. Rub.
