Incorrigible

Specializes in around 25 years psych, 15years medical. Has 42 years experience.

For those of you just tuning in, please allow me to bring you up to speed:

I was terminated from Wrongway after 17 years two weeks and two days, am considering retirement, but also considering semi-retirement, working part time.

On Sunday I applied online for a position 7 1/2 miles from my rural home at a LTC facility, and on Monday I was offered a position.

I figure working eight 8 hour shifts per month will pay the bills without me having to deplete other financial reserves.

So begins a tentative nursing future with...

Here's how I felt the initial interview at Incorrigible went:

Well, not really.

Ronald MacDonald wasn't there.

CONGRATS on the new gig!! I was working part time for awhile also to help pay bills etc while waiting to finish getting old so I can collect my social security retirement, almost there!. I cant see your above cartoon (I am assuming it is a cartoon) but I liked it anyway cuz I like Ronald and his BigMacs. I hope you like the new job at goofy (maybe you better be careful what you are posting though in light of what happened at WW).

You don't have to answer this here, but wondering how detailed you were during your interview? Wondering if the new employer is aware of your cartooning activities. Maybe you should look for another source of inspiration for the time being. CONGRATS on the rapid hiring. Hope this works out for you.

Hi Davey, congratulations on the new job, enough to keep the wolf from the door but not too much that you feel you are working too much.

I know I said that I was following your story, and I was, but the 'virus' kind of took over so when I went back there were hundreds (or as we sometimes say in Scotland 'hunders') of replies and I went eeeeekk!! TL:Dr Sorry, but I did get the gist.

Enjoy semi-retirement and use it to prepare for full retirement when you feel it is time. The worst part of this lockdown is that all the stuff I was doing to keep me occupied in my retirement has closed and there is only so much cr*p TV I can tolerate. 😢

Keep up the cartoons, I do enjoy them.

PS, B, the answer is B. Is there a prize?

What is happening? Every time I save this post the TL:Dr comes out like that instead of with a capital R as I have written. Multiple attempts to correct it have failed.

Davey, I do not know why you were terminated but I know for pretty much sure that whoever did that is an idiot not worthy any further attention.

Congranulation with the new job!

Thank you, Kitiger, I am. And, basically, I'm okay with that.

The answer to the contest was either A or B, depending upon the situation. To those with whom I feel free, or feel I have a right, to express myself as I really am, the answer would be B.

However, with those who I cannot be myself, the answer would be A.

"Whoever did that is an idiot" seem to be apropos, Katie. It seems Those In Charge at Wrongway have a way of cutting their own throats, and I'm not talking about just me.

Some cases in point:

Back in '17, Margie, the geriatric psych manager, made an absurd observation around some of Those In Charge and was suspended over her remark. Margie had worked at Wrongway long before it was bought out by the For Profit Organization and was a hard working pillar of the community.

To suspend Margie was consensually perceived as ludicrously deprecating and she ended up resigning.

I mentioned Colby RN in another thread who worked weekend option on the female psych unit, and I told him at one point, "You're sort of a legend around here". Colby wanted to leave 10 minutes early from his shift because his toddler daughter had been injured and they gave him a "Call Off". Weekend option employees are allowed only two call offs per year or they loose their pay benefit. That was a final straw for Colby and he resigned, getting a better position at another hospital.

I've communicated with Tonya, another psych RN, who left Wrongway after I was terminated. Tonya is a nurse extraordinaire who was an LPN, got her RN, and is working on her NP. Tonya got fed up and resigned.

There are other good nurses who have recently resigned from Wrongway due to administration's idiocracy, so I feel as though I'm in good company.

To add to the ludicracy, Wrongway's administration was proactively getting staff volunteers together for a group to discern "How can we hire and keep quality employees?"

Some other staff members and I were discussing the topic when I said, "That wheel has already been invented. All administration needs to do is to follow in the footsteps of the wise".

I could go on and on, but this thread is about Incorrigible and not the Wrongway.

As I mentioned before, I applied for this position through Indeed last Sunday evening, and Monday morning, Kal-El, the administrator of Incorrigible, telephoned me. We set up the initial interview that afternoon and it seemed everything was in the bag.

Kal-El said the business manager would contact me Tuesday to take care of some necessities, but I heard nothing. So I emailed Kal-El, documenting our meeting- pleasantries, work schedule, pay, etc.- and received no return communication.

I thought, "Uh-oh: Buyer's Remorse!"

But Kal-El telephoned me this afternoon and I have an appointment with the business manager scheduled for Friday morning.

I know I could have just kept you apprised of my hiring status, but that would have made it less interesting of an adventure...

wouldn't it...

Swellz?

Oh- and Hoosier.
