For the love of Pete...imma guess you hardly get to go to the bathroom and/or eat without an interuption...how is THIS gonna end?

Badly...very, muchly, badly

After having almost a full week of missed lunches last week, I've decided that another course of action is necessary for me.  I leave the building at my lunch time.  I live close, so i can just go home for lunch, but if i didn't and this was still what was happening, then i'd be eating in my car.  I still get texts from secretaries and my principal during my lunch, but them knowing that i am out of the building and me texting back logical instructions like "tell the child who is here complaining again about his headache that i'll see him next period."  

I even made mention at my last union meeting to get some guidance as to why me office isn't getting lunch coverage if it's that big of a deal for me to be gone for 45 min.  I had one teacher that was trying to plead her case to me why i shouldn't leave.  She didn't have much to say when i reminded her that i am entitled to take a lunch.

Saturday afternoon, at my boarding school weekend job, a girl came in stating that she sneezed and got a bloody nose and blood came out of her eyes. Her face was completely clean, AND she had waited over an hour to come the health center. 

A) It was blood splatter from your sneeze, not from your eyes

B) literally the only things that could possibly cause that would be rare genetic conditions that would have been discovered long before now or Ebola. 

 

I should have told her she had ebola.

That made me think of the old humor blog post "my boyfriend doesn't have ebola. Probably" It had the BEST pain scale that the author made up. I think bleeding from the eyes was one of the worst levels.

Back aeons ago, when I was a school nurse, they tried to tell me that being a 'Title I Aide' was part of my job description. I was expected to go into classrooms with children who were slow to read and help them with their reading. I was not allowed to bring them out with me so as to, you know, NOT DISRUPT THE CLASS and also be in my office where they didn't have to page me every time a kiddo needed me to do nursey stuff.

It was a nightmare and died a quick death when I just outright refused to do it anymore. But it absolutely took me threatening to leave. I couldn't get them to back me up to the blooming parents when their kids were sick enough to go home, and parents were balking about coming to pick them up. My nursing degree didn't qualify me to make that decision. But I was qualified to teach reading.

Kid comes from PE with a shabbily wrapped gauze around his knee. Turns out he fell and had torn a scab from a previous abrasion. "Coach already put some alcohol on it but wants you to look at it."

Me: Like, he wiped it with an alcohol pad??

Kid: No, he has a big bottle of it. But, he only put the alcohol on it because he couldn't find his hydrogen peroxide. 

I.JUST.CAN'T!!!!
