Ok, I had posted this in response to another thread,but I figured "What the heck?" Might as well put it out there & vent a little. Maybe, someone else is in the same boat? Or has any words of wisdom?(but please be nice, no "suck it up buttercup" for two reasons 1) it's been a very inner emotional day today 2)Sorry (TMI) However, it's that time of the month,& with the way I'm feeling I could probably kill someone for a Reese's peanut buttercup right now
It came out of nowhere...I was soaring...now in the blink of an eye, I'm plummeting. We received our test results from our first test ever in school today...I should have known. I had this gnawing feeling inside, that something just "wasn't right". My classmates tried to comfort me "It'll be fine" they said. "You'll do great they said" "Stop worrying, I bet you got an A" they said...then one by one we were called up, student's silently looked at their grades and almost all had smiles and raised their fists in triumph.
That almost everyone did not include me unfortunately. In my school 75 and under is failing. My score? 73. One freaking question. I had gotten a 100 on the quiz. I honestly do not know what went wrong except for a tiny little fact that apparently, I despite KNOWING that one is supposed to "contain" a fire, apparently according to my test, I think it's appropriate to "Call" maybe I was subconsciously asking to "phone a friend" during my test? I have no idea.
The only other thing is that THE CHOICE OPTIONS SUCK!! In a very ironic "because they are all good choices" kind of way.
Ugh, my major downfall (besides my delusional fire one) came from a question about a pt going "AMA" -against medical advice, for those that aren't up to that yet. It asked what we were supposed to do if our pt did this. Well, my teacher emphasized (along c the book) that you are supposed to have them sign a form! It's an important thing to do! Well one of the options was "tell your supervisor." Well, I choose the other option to have the pt sign the form (what I honestly thought we were supposed to do.) My teacher never mentioned anything about telling the supervisor in this situation (neither did the textbook) I mean I'm not naive enough to not ever mention the fact that my pt decided to go ama to my supervisor, (Of course I would!!) however, I always imagined I would approach my supervisor with a signed FORM IN MY DARN HAND!! Unfortunately, there were a few more questions like this on the test that I must have gotten wrong as well.
I mean maybe there is a lesson to learn in all of this, maybe I need to think outside the box? Be more logical? Or maybe I'm just supposed to watch my future pt make a run for the exit WITHOUT having him sign the form according to the test(The second I leave to tell my supervisor, naturally) and shout "That's him...it's AMA man, he went that-a-way!" and point dramatically. Or maybe I'm supposed to silently hope and pray my client trips, falls & sprains his ankle on the way out so that I might be able to in fact have him sign the form (you know as he is laying on the ground), mere seconds after telling my supervisor. However, that would (to me at least) be a little tongue-in-cheek no?
Maybe I should just quit while I'm ahead (or NOT in this case) and see if McDonalds is hiring? =/
