Card playing is popular here in Washington. Everywhere else people look at their smartphones. Here in Washington, impromptu card games are common.

Of course! My unit loves Bridge, and Crazy Eights. We have several games going at once. We get so tired from it all, we NEED extra breaks!

Right. A full house supersedes compressions, obviously...😏

Apparently this comment was made during discussion of
SHB 1155, in the Washington state Senate.  SHB 1155 addresses meal and rest breaks as well as mandatory overtime.  The comment regarding playing cards was made by Ms. Walsh, specifically referring to nurses at critical access hospitals, where she stated there might only be 6 patients in the entire facility.

Ms. Walsh's comments begin at 9:10  of the video.

There is another thread discussing this: Mandatory Break Bill.

I’m just here for DaveyDo’s drawing.  I’m too dumbfounded to come up with anything clever or snarky to say.

"Maybe since she's coding, no one will notice that I failed to call 'Uno' with only one card left in my hand..."
