I need to share this...

On my way home from work today, I stopped at Rite-Aid. The cashier took one look at my scrubs and asked, "What do you do in the health care field?" I said I was a school nurse and, without missing a beat, she replied, "Thank you for your service. You are appreciated. You do a wonderful job!"

I was stunned. This woman doesn't know me, I've never seen her before but she brightened my day with her kind, sincere words. It was just what I needed to hear 1f642.png

Nice!!! I'm sure she has lots of conversations with nurses over the course of the school year. OR has kids in a different system. What a nice thing to brighten up your day!

Welcome to our little piece of allnurses heaven. Stop by for our craziness and for the info all the others on here impart. This forum shortened my learning curve immensely.

I was preparing myself for the ubiquitous - Oh, then you aren't a real nurse. Such a pleasant surprise.

Thats so nice to hear. When I tell people I'm a mental health nurse I don't get that kind of response : (

I always get "I LOVED my school nurse when I was a kid!"

Tell me what beautiful planet on earth you are from I'd move there in a heart beat. :inlove:

Back here in Metropolis, I get charge "double" for a Fruuking donut. Our Donut Peeps here think that we are Super Heros, that I am Superman and my partner is Wonder Woman just because we save the world and what is annoyingly worse is that they think we make MUCHO Dinero :uhoh3: --- well, fine, we do :roflmao: :rolleyes:

But that's not the point.... the issue here is, I don't get appreciated by this Walgreen or Rite-Aid or SuperWalmart peeps. Heck, even when I visit Salvation Army I don't get one either!!!! :madface:
