So when this all came out, I was furious. I wrote a letter and sent a joker card with the Senator's name on it. And furious is not being hyperbolic. My husband? Didn't even ask what was going on. Took no interest when I played all the YouTube videos on it. Had a blank stare when telling him about it. That's it.

The reason this bothers me so much? I'm working private duty out of crushing anxiety and fear of returning to floor Nursing. And let me tell you, I am miserable about doing this job. I miss floor nursing, but will absolutely not return until/unless these facilities get their act together and politicians put down their cards and do their jobs. 

I understand the Senator was speaking about very small community hospitals. But it shows, very glaringly, the lack of understanding among politicians what we do (the very people we need to understand our jobs.) 

So the fact that my husband didn't even care enough to really listen to me....I'd say that's a divorce-able offense. Bc it shows his lack of caring period.

Nope, you are not a "crusty old bat"---give hubby a box of crayons for your anniversary and then tell him its hilarious.

Actually, maybe not a good idea!

No, I would be offended by this as well. To give this as a gag gift with a follow up true gift would have been funny. But with all the work we do we deserve more.

I think a deck of cards from the hospital would be HYSTERICAL. Much better than the nasty, stale cookies they gave us!
