    Breakroom Pet Peeves

    remember I said "politely interrupt". Some chats are private regardless they are in a break room. Perhaps feel the tone of their chat. If a group is talking quietly about their home life, I'm not going to butt and force my two cents on them.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Asked one of the "refuge nurses" how long was he going to be an orphan? He laughed and replied "I don't know"

    Taking a break? How long until you came back?

    I invited myself to a Cinqo De Mayo on another unit. At least two crockpots were on. Yummy. A friend who transferred invited me over, that is

    Nurses That Never Worked In A Hospital...

    I started in long term care and then went to hospital. Got a side job in long term care, I lasted 2 months. I ran and didn't complain about my hospital job for a couple months. That's like FOREVER in gripe about your job years.

    Patients forget too. I know of two that got a (shall we say) a lovely hair and peel removal treatment due to their urges. Just them, their O2, and Marlboro is all they needed.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    They were small units about 8 PTs max, they were used at first for ICU overflow or Cath Lab when COVID hit they closed CL and used overflow for RO/Pos. Now both are closed. I'm sure they'll open back up eventually. Now the RNs and CNAs just float around like orphans.

    MNA and Nurses Respond to the Killing of George Floyd by Police

    It still would of ended tragically. The knife she was holding was in the midst of going straight towards her neck. Assuming the cop ran forward or even tazed her to stop her, you still have to consider which would have landed first. The kinife, the police, or the prongs. I think the knife would of landed first. With adrenaline pumping and blood coming out the target would be dead by the time the ambulance came. Instead of being dead she would be in prison for murder. Even if no one died, she would be charged with attempted murder or aggravated assault. The whole situation is tragic, before, after, and during. It is wrong to place the blame solely on that police for her death. Many people failed her.

    It has a Pay Wall and my money is for Bingo and Candy Crush. As for your story. That is great my brother taught me chess at a young age and he loves chess. There are many kids who don't have the benefit of getting a feature in the national press who still need help to this day. They may not play chess, but they still matter too.

    MNA and Nurses Respond to the Killing of George Floyd by Police

    Besides trying to change someone by calling them names or "owning them" is not an effective way to go. There is a black man who is famous for talking to a KKK leader. They called him oreo, sellout, and a Tom. Now that KKK leader is no longer in the klan and is good friends with the black guy. If you prod too much, people will just go underground and their beliefs will be engrained deeper. Sure it may take time for some, but I feel that people don't even try. They immediately go with the shunning and the hate. This doesn't help and only helps feeds the hateful messages that their recruiters spill. "You see how they treat you? We are your friends. Not them"

    I didn't see any hate, just strong opinions. Everyone has the right to their opinions. If you post your opinion, don't be put off if people respond in kind. I love a good chat. That's why I'll miss Y!A. Granted you have to skip over the children past their bedtime some people do have interesting things to say and it makes you think. I feel AllNurses has a lot of that here. I personally am not quick to call people white supremacist either. I mean to be honest all white people are WS to an extent. Yes, that does mean liberals and Democrats. Too many people are quick to point the finger or latch devise terms on to others while totally ignoring the faults within their own ranks.

    I felt the same about the Joe Biden one. That is why I expressed that sentiment and then stop looking or adding to it.

    So do you think that a no knock warrant looking for Pelosi laptop is OK?

    I don't think Rittenhouse should of been there either. Yes, he was a child and shouldn't of been engaging in that type of activity let alone with a weapon. I don't think that even a BLM 17yr old should be out late at night. I think it was wrong for grown adult business owners to praise this child for "helping defend them". They should of told him to go home. He got into a situation where he was attacked and killed two people. You could tell he was retreating and running away, yet they still went after him. Looks like he went from a tough kid wanting to protect, to a scared kid who was in fear of his life (having a weapon doesn't mean that you are not scared for your life). Can't have it both ways. That is why I don't think children should be involved in those things. If you want to voice yourself do a tiktok video

    Nothing like a good OPINION BOMBER to ruin the mood. I wonder if they feel the silent death stares or even care. Worst is that they are always wrong, but think being confrontational and blunt = I am correct. They are rarely confronted. You just get dragged into a meaningless conversation with them and who has time for that on such a short break time?
