    Are you my waitress today?

    Actually, in the 18th & 19th century, most "nurses" were prostitutes. Who better to take care of men, especially in war, than a women who were not uncomfortable seeing a naked man and caring for the needs of his body. "Ladies" would never deem this a proper vocation...until Florence Nightengale during the Crimean War. Even then, the "new" nurses got no respect because most nurses were still prostitiues who received most of their pay in liquor.

    as good as it gets and it ain't that good

    My hospital requires us to sign up for mandatory on-call shifts...whether you work part time or full time. A lot of nurses have gone to part time, because they know they'll be called in for their on-call shifts anyway.
