I could whine and complain about how these negative nurses are extremely depressing and ruining nursing for those of us that actually enjoy our jobs.
:smackingf Or I could think of a NEW GAME!
Please help me play, so we can have a bit of fun.
Some of you guys out there are starting to seriously bring me down.
A bit of levity is needed before someone makes good on their suicidal ideation.
Suicide by car crash! Death by gardening!
Come on guys, lighten up!
The challenge is to get something of your chest and expose your pet peeve in a positive but sardonic manner, no whining allowed -ever.
:typing Identify your pet peeve -must be a nursing/healthcare issue.:behindpc:
Poke fun at that individual/group/behavior using cynical humor. :roll
Come up with a workable solution.
End the post with a catchphfrase.:yeahthat:
NO discussion of the issues of the pet peeve NO DISCUSSION UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, NOT EVEN PM's. You cannot litter the thread with debate and above all you cannot take the insult seriously if it happens to touch a raw nerve. However that does not mean that you cannot start another thread about this subject at a later date - but you cannot refer back to this thread. If you think you might have a problem with sticking to the rules at a later date, leave the thread now and do not pass go. Please enjoy the game.

Pet peeve: student nurses that use allnurses.com to try to get their essay topics the lazy way.
2/3 You obviously have a computer. My advice - use it. Find out what a search engine is really for. Or - you found your way to allnurses.com -why not check out some of it's special features and search the archives. Maybe you could just even use your imagination. You never know when it could come in handy. Perhaps when you start your first job as an RN. Maybe then. I've already done the homework and got the degree, now its your turn. Enjoy!
4. Catchphfrase - Don't ask me for your essay title -USE YOUR NOOGLE!!!!

Pet peeve: Docs who don't sign their consent and get pi$$y, or worse, when asked to make the effort of physically walking over and signing the darn thing like it's beneath them and zapping their energy unbearably.
I'm not the doc, I can't do it for you. No, I won't bring it to you. I already had to go through the chart to find you hadn't done your job, look for you through the unit then page your sorry @$$ so don't yell at me because you have to do something. Yes I know we should've been in the room 20 minutes ago but Elvis wasn't in the building yet! You're getting paid the big bucks to do this so quit kvetching and just do your job so I can do mine.
catchphrase: Don't be a pita, just do it
How's that? There are many more after yesterday so I'll be baaa-aaaack LOL

Pet Peeve: Parent who bring their child in for a runny nose x 1 day.
Yes, I know your child has a runny nose. Oh, you DIDN'T try any OTC meds recommended to you by the office nurse instead of coming in to the office today. Oh, yes they can be "pricey". But not as much as those cigarettes you smoke around your child which you venemently state you don't despite the fact that your child smells like a bar at last call. And the razor phone you are currently using to talk to your friends while I'M TRYING TO GET A HISTORY FROM YOU, I bet that cost a pretty penny too. I tell you what, how about you try to let your kid be sick for more than 12 hours, try the OTC med, stop smoking around them, and then if all those things don't work, then you come back for a real office visit. I'm sure this is exactly what the government was hoping you would use that free (for you) health care card for.
Catch Phase- Don't be a pain in my rear end, buy your kid some acetaminophen.
(Do I get any point for a catch phrase that sort of rhymes?)
