Being a flight nurse, we used to wear a radio that toned us out with the same tone that was once featured on a Nextel commercial. So naturally, every time that commercial would come on and those distinctive "beep beeps" would come on and my ears would perk up thinking, "Ooo We are getting called out!"
Whenever my kids would get hurt (a skinned knee, a busted lip) I would assess the damage and give them the appropriate treatment and some love but if they would keep whining, I would respond, "Oh I have seen a lot worse than that so you need to buck up!"
The same thing happens when my hypochondriac family members would call with a snot or a sniffle and ask if they needed to go to the ER. I would always respond, "You aren't dying, I have seen a lot worse than that, and you don't go to the ER unless you are DYING. "
