IN PRISON....You spend the majority of your time in an 8x10 cell.

AT WORK......You spend the majority of your time in a 6x8 cubicle.

IN PRISON....You get three meals a day.

AT WORK......You only get a break for one meal and you pay for it.

IN PRISON....You get time off for good behavior.

AT WORK......You get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON....The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.

AT WORK......You must carry around a security card and open all

the doors for yourself.

IN PRISON...You can watch TV and play games.

AT WORK.....You get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON...They allow your family and friends to visit.

AT WORK.....You can't even speak to your family on the phone.

IN PRISON...The taxpayers pay all expenses with no work

required.

AT WORK.....You get to pay all the expenses to go to work

and then they deduct taxes from your salary

to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON...You spend most of your life inside bars wanting

to get out.

AT WORK.....You spend most of your time wanting to get out

and go inside bars.

IN PRISON...You must deal with sadistic wardens.

AT WORK.....They are called managers.

:confused: :roll :chuckle

I thought it was funny! I don't think it was trying to glamorize being a prisoner, I think it was a humorous comparison to the work environment we sometimes become prisoners to. A humorous analogy of sorts. I guess some people don't find that funny.

I'm confused. Do you want to set us all free, or do you want lock all of them up without bread and water?

your views don't fly with me.

Why are some nurses so serious all the time? If you gals don't want to hear a joke stay out of nursing humor. I'm sure pt nurse didn't mean anything by it.
