I will not accept that Snowflakes and COBs are the only options. There must be a happy medium in there somewhere.

Well, the sad fact is that I'm probably the worst of all worlds, THE HYBRID! :laugh:

As a current student who has a long, long time to reach the level of knowledge and expertise as most nurses on here, I have to say that I hate when that phrase is used to generalize all student nurses/new grads. I know a lot of us act like know-it-all brats, but we're not all that way :(

Actually, snowflakes are very special. Each one is unique. Have you ever seen one under a microscope? I thought not.

Dogen, you're old.

And bald, apparently.

All Special Snowflakes think they have Bat superpowers. Then they melt.

What exactly does that look like?

'But I don't think you understand that I actually am the specialist and the crustiest and the oldest and the battiest.'

Sounds like the crusty old velociraptor mentioned a couple of weeks ago.

I have to make an admission.

I've seen the snowflake term tossed around here a few times. I actually thought it was one person's nickname. As in, everyone was talking to this one person who seemed to really annoy everyone.

After reading this thread I get it now. Gee, I can be so dense sometimes.

But I agree, there should be more than just snowflake and COB. I mean, already, we're leaving out the "Higher Calling" people. Or are they just a different variation of the snowflake? An especially white and pure snowflake? And what about the Diva's? The ones who make comments like "I did NOT make a mistake, you're just threatened because I'm so much prettier than you!". Or are they just a variation of the snowflake too?

This is getting too complicated. See why I was confused?
