You know, when you have a bunch of grown men crying and whining.
Case in point: A tattoo laden 250 lb. man with multiple piercings freaking out over an IV.
Or a 35 year old man that threw up once and his mama brings him in at 2am.
..........you get the point.........:chuckle

And I love FLK Day (Funny Looking Kid).
And don't forget "THE PATIENT DICTATES HIS CARE" day.
The last one is also known as "The nurses and doctors go out after work and have a few beers" day
