I believe that the attendings feast on the tender flesh of fellows, who in turn eat their residents, who consequently eat their medical students.

Meanwhile, the medical students eat nothing, which is why they take out their hangry aggression on unsuspecting AllNurses.

But eventually those cranky student doctors become grown-up doctors who go on to eat everybody else, and the Circle of Life continues.

Are these actions all Evidence Based Practices?

Unclear, but if @Davey Do were still on this site, I'm sure he could make us a lovely diagram how how poop tends to roll downhill. 💩

I think some med school professors and attending physicians take the Socratic method to the extreme. I think it's considered a rite of passage.

It's especially bad in many law schools. My D is a new attorney. She used to go to class extremely stressed out. You may have been assigned several hundred pages of case law to read in a matter of a day or two. If your name comes to the professor (some just use the seating chart, others draw names from a hat or bowl), you are asked to stand up at your seat, and you proceed to get grilled about the reading. The more answers you get right, the more questions you get asked in an attempt to find your weak spot. Any evidence that you didn't do all the reading or didn't remember key points would get you dismissed disdainfully from class by the professor (think Elle Woods on the first day of law school in Legally Blonde-that actually happens) and you get "memo-ed," meaning you had a huge paper to write by the next class about the subject you didn't know well enough; in addition, you still had to prepare for the possibility of getting called on again over new reading (and if you got memo-ed, you can pretty much count on getting grilled again).

She describes law school as 3 years of Hell.

Yep. By leaving someone who can’t respect her nor cares about her feelings. She isn’t the issue here. 
 

Methinks there’s an unguarded bridge somewhere out there.

If only 1 person is laughing then it’s not a joke.

And I think you might be a bit of a jerk and if you don’t respect your wife your marriage is doomed.

Seems like you're the one that's triggered based on needing to make an account to come seek validation that you are right on an internet forum full of strangers.

On the off chance you're not a troll, I'd like to point out that your wife is not a child. Perhaps she is sensitive. That doesn't make it ok to intentionally press buttons. THAT is childish "behavior." I used to be a very jealous wife. Irrationally so. And that was on me. But I do know my husband respected me enough to not go on forums and make fun of me. We worked out our issues together, in private.

Well the internet is anonymous so I was hoping I could show her this thread and all the cool, laid back nurses who had no problem taking a few jokes.
