Came in this morning to a maggot taped to a post-it note on the middle of my desk, with a note stating it had been found own a student's backpack. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?! There it was, right smack-dab in the middle of all of my things. What the heck am I supposed to do about that? I absolutely lost it- although I was able to keep it together enough to not look absolutely nuts. It's that kind of stuff that makes me crazy.

Oh, my goodness! How disrespectful! How would ANYONE feel about having a maggot taped to their desk?? Gross.

This is exactly what I said to the teacher, once I was able to figure out who had actually left it for me!

Maybe you should find some graphic images, like some of the results of HPV, and post them in the faculty restrooms for their viewing pleasure. You could call it health education. When I worked for a pediatrician, the Gardasil rep came in with a flip book of those images, and I will never forget them.

I would be upset too.

And the worst thing about this is, I can see WHY they did it to you. They see you as an expert in all things frightening: blood, boogers and bugs. So in her mind she probably though she caught some disease carrying agent of doom that a student brought in from home and the best person to show was you. The expert. Since you weren't there, leaving it for you to find to evaluate also made sense.

I've said it before, I'm not sure how some of my staff has raised children based on what they send to me/call me down for.

What in the actual heck?

And why, unless someone is walking around your school with a disgusting gangrenous wound, is this maggot your problem?!?!

Picture would have sufficed, imo.

Exactly what I said! In fact, I pointed out that once, way back in my early nursing years, I had a patient undergoing maggot therapy, for a leg wound.

I didn't even need the picture lol

Not grossed out by it, I just don't think it was a nursing issue.

I would be fuming. Curious what you said to the teacher, and what her response to you was.
