I had a kid tell me that he wanted a pet chicken for Christmas, name it Gabby and hatch a baby chick army.

I am so tired of kids telling me they are fine, good to go back to class. Heck, sometimes even telling their parent the same thing on the phone. THEN - 18 minutes later mom is here to pick up because kid is texting from class that their symptoms are so much worse!!! Really??? 

C'MON NOW!!! Then parent asks if they should take them to the doctor. My answer "well, if they deteriorated that quickly in 4 minutes - yes, take them in."

Your money, not mine...........

Student came in and asked for a juice box. "What makes you think I give out juice boxes"  I just saw a student leave with one.  "Well that student has a disease that she would need her parent supplied juice from time to time" (T1D of course).

Please stop sending me all the dress code kids at once. I have one cabinet full of clothes. This just takes away from kids who end up needing it for more health-related reasons. Sick of it. Wish admin would do something instead of pawning it off on me.

Principal "Can I ask you a favor?"

Me "Sure!"

P- "Can you watch the front desk for a few minutes while I meet with the office staff for a little holiday celebration? I'll let you have first pick of the breakfast sandwiches"

M "Sure....."

Knowing full well, thosehouly folks almost always get their break and lunch on a very regular basis...I barely get lunch or, if I do, it is at my desk with kids and  staff traipsing in and out oblivious to my full mouth.

 

And no other holiday, school nurses day recognition...there is one of me ....I still get an ecard form the previous principal at all the holidays....

3rd grade student: Approaches my desk, holding his left hand out as if it is disease-ridden, displaying his yellowed fingernails...

Me: "Let me guess, you had an orange at snack just now..." 

Him: "How did you know!?" 

:banghead:

Had an older kid being extra and moaning how his knee hurt from a dreaded dodge ball injury. Mostly being silly. When the ice went on he wailed,

"IT BURNS!!!" 

His friend that brought him down without skipping a beat says, "It's because you are evil."🙂

I was silently thinking the same thing 😈.

Had a drama llama in my office for a broken/sprained ankle with no marks or swelling, no wincing or grimacing as I poked and prodded it.  Told him to head back to class without ice. Saw him in the hall a few minutes later. "Nurse, it still hurts REAL bad". I told him that was because he was limping on the wrong foot!

C'Mon fake it with the correct foot.

A few years ago when I was working at a junior high, we had a girl who had constant notes to be out of PE for a mysterious knee pain. Doctor also wrote for her to have extra passing time so she wouldn't be in crowded halls and risking further injury. She wore a knee brace and strutted around with attitude constantly. 

Several of her teachers came to me asking about it. She was definitely a drama llama too and I'm sure she was milking it in class for months. The mom was a piece of work, screaming at me on the phone when the doctor's note expired and she needed to get a new one, screaming at the principal when she called home about the girl's attitude in class. The mom was actually banned from the building for a while after threatening violence against the principal. 

A few times, teachers and other staff saw her running or otherwise rough housing in the halls and tried to call her on it. One day she wore the brace on the opposite knee. I was glad when I didn't have to deal with her anymore.

how about the kids that get the indefinite return to activity and then getting them to take the next step is like pulling teeth?  It's one thing when they're gym-phobic, but when it's a sporty kid that will try to play at recess, it's another whole ordeal.  All you can do is remind and document.
