I got a really good chuckle out of this:

Or maybe she would like me to eat some of...

What type of media do you "manipulate in order to achieve an emotional response"? Can you share some of your works?

You know, there are websites where you can post, and even receive commission on works you may desire to profit from.

And, heck, if your work is nursing related, you could even share it here on good ol' allnurses!

Thank you for your comment and support, Hosier!

I'm a knitter/crocheter and have a cricut machine. I'm afraid if I shared anything, I'd be outed. My creations are well known in my area. I do sell some on FB and at local craft shows, but not enough to quit my day job. But then again, I don't want to. It then becomes a job, and no longer enjoyable

I about peed my pants laughing over the feces pieces. I'm still laughing!

I don't get the "nickel for every response". Could you elaborate?

you know, the nicey nice response to your face and then either nothing or wham. Like for instance...."We are so happy that you brought this to our attention, we will look into this further" (blah blah)...

I have heard these so many times that I would be rich because I would have so many nickels.

And, Daisy, let's not be disrespectful. It's not "Mr. Bumblehead"! It's "Mr. Bumblingham"!

Nope, I am sticking with Bumblehead

I've recently gotten a text that my little sister is in the hospital, is to have a portacath placed, and doesn't want to talk about it until she comes home. Since colon cancer runs in my family- my grandmother had a colostomy in 1950, my Dad died from metastasized cancer, probably with its origin in the colon, and I had a cancerous colon polyp removed in 2000- I'm guessing little sister has colon cancer. I had a dream last night she told me that she had cancer of the descending and sigmoid colon.

I am so sorry to hear this, I hope your sister will be OK and will keep her in my prayers!

How interesting! Knitting and crocheting! I'm impressed with the way you all make your fingers and needle dance with yarn and thread and produce those lovely pieces of work. 

Belinda does that also. I'm amazed that she can sit down, and in no time at all say, "I knitted you some slippers!"

The reason why I gave up the freelance art thing was because it became more work than pleasure. That, and I got a position at Wrongway which paid more than my previous position and art income together.

Now about peeing your pants: Can I get you a Depends?

I did not even think of this, but don't believe they will give me paid time off, TriciaJ. I was the one who said, "I will not be accepting any work assignments  until (certain criteria is met)". HR Rita later said, "you are not to report to your scheduled shift until we have a chance to meet and discuss".

I was suspended without pay from Anomaly State Hospital back in '92 without pay. I've heard of others being suspended without pay.

What leads you to believe that I should be paid on administrative leave, TriciaJ?

Well of course it depends on your union contract (if you have one) and the labour laws in your state.  But it's worth looking into.

Many years ago, during a labour dispute, my coworker and I programmed some pro-union slogans into the nursing station computer screensavers.  The powers-that-be apparently went ballistic.  We both got a phone call at home telling us we were on administrative leave until further notice.

We contacted our union attorney and were told we were suspected of dumping files from the hospital computer system.  Of course we had no idea how to even do this, and there would have been no purpose served by doing it.  It was bogus and in retaliation for our being vocal about the labour dispute.

We heard nothing for five weeks, then were called to a tribunal.  The tribunal was laughable, but at least I got to look my manager in the eye and tell him that I did not dump any computer files.  (Of course I copped to the screensaver; I had actually done that.)

We were paid for every nanosecond we were on admin leave.  The shifts I had scheduled as charge, I received charge pay.  The overtime shifts I had agreed to, I got paid overtime.  When we finally ratified our contract and received retro pay, it included the five weeks of admin leave.

Yes you told Rita you weren't willing to work until your concerns were addressed.  But your concerns were based on safety and already codified in policy.  Rita got the last word in telling you not to report for work.  In my book, the turd's in her pocket and you should be getting paid.

At least look into it.

That about sums it up.

And I will let little sister know, thank you, Daisy.

I never thought I'd be glad to not have a talented bone in my body.  I do a lot of handicrafts, but my goal in life is to never become good at anything again.

By the way, Davey - I'm sorry to hear about your sister.  Your whole work situation might be a blessing in disguise.  I'm going to send good thoughts for your sister to have the best possible outcome.

A worthy goal, indeed.

"A blessing in disguise" is how I'm looking at it, also.

Thank you for the empathy and good thoughts, Triciaj. You're a great support and virtual friend!

That cancer is a royal B! Hopefully that is not what your sister has going on Davey Do. Despite family history it's not a guaranteed diagnosis by any means.  Heck, going by family history I'm doomed.  Of my father and his siblings 3 of 4 had cancer with my father passing from it. Their father and one of my uncle's 3 children died from cancer.  Oddly my cousin that passed from leukemia was the child of the one of 4 siblings that has not had cancer.  I also lost my mother to cancer though there's no significant history in her family.  Even more strange with all that family history every single one was a different cancer.

Yeah, thanks kbrn, but with my family history plus my dream, you know... 

Belinda said, "You know they also place portacaths for long term IV antibiotic therapy", but I just have this feeling.

We'll see.

Some days at work, I feel like I need one. 

Prayers for little sister. Cancer is a cast iron b****!
