I was off for Thanksgiving this year. A co-worker was begging me to take her shift and would not leave me alone about it. I told her that I'd do it but I'd need $600 cash prior. She said, "I'M NOT GOING TO PAY YOU" and hung up.
Ah. I mean, I wasn't going to do it anyway, but what kind of response do you expect when I'm at home drinking wine at 11pm?! After I had already politely told you no?!
Just a cute lil Thanksgiving story for ya'll!

Well handled, NurseDisneyPrincess!
Reminds me of a story when I worked in Chemical Dependency Treatment 30 years ago. A Patient said he'd pay any staff member $100 to give him a ride home. Of course no staff member took the Patient up on the offer except the Program Director who said, "I'm holding out for $150". I was shocked and asked him why. He replied, "Anybody who'll pay $100 for a ride home will surely pay $150!"
The good news is the Patient never got a ride home, completed treatment and had a long sobriety.
