    When confidentiality isn't quite the same

    I read this thread from the beginning. Yes. Some credit was given, but one poster stated that he had burnt his bridges and from that, they couldn't take his posts seriously. And then came the 'jokes' like 'cath me!' Etc. then a poster said something about how on his cath post what bothered her, was that he sexualized it (this is what brought the whole thread down) He didn't bring it up at all. But that's what you guys wanted all along. To have fun and your laughs. But I'll continue to watch you guys have your fun On this post and many others where you just beat the horse over and over. Lol (not specifically YOU, but the participants in this thread)

    OP this is a good post. Very different on how they do things in Zimbabwe, but that would not go well here. I couldn't imagine my family sitting around my bed listening to all of my health problems just shaking their head and probably judging me. *shudders* Some of you guys couldn't wait for the OP to say something for you guys to jump on. You guys had Orville redenbacher within minutes of him posting. Geez. Leave the past in the past. The post was a good one. And it's always the same posters jumping on folks. Some things he says are...off, but this post could have been a good discussion until people starting bringing up his old catheter post. If he doesn't 'get it' stop beating a dead horse.

    LPN Jobseeker in Broward County, FL

    I was doing a search on something and came across this! Lol To the OP the jails hire new grads. That was my first job. Try there!
  13. Broward county jails. They like new grads and that was my first Lpn job. Also telephone triage. Was hired shortly after the jail. Also like new grads from what the manager told me. Good luck!

    I want to throat-punch my co-worker

    OP this happened to me once. I said to the secretary "excuse me" there was no 'distractions' she heard me. I wanted her to move her cup. I was RIGHT next to her and we were the only 2 there at the time. I waited and she didn't move it. I politely moved the cup and she blew up on me! Told me not to touch her stuff and moved the cup right back to where it was. Talk about wanting to throat punch somebody! I avoided her ever since that day. Apparently she's like that and ppl stay out of her way. I would just be polite no matter what she does. Sometimes it kills the tension and sometimes it doesn't. But don't change your ways because of her.
