So the other day I happen to glance at the computer screen of the unit secretary (who I have since learned is doing prereqs) as I walked behind her and noticed that she was reading a post on this site.

What was interesting about this is that at that very moment she was reading one of MY posts from 2012 :roflmao: ... what are the chances? I kept silent. And she will never know that the real PacoUSA was standing right behind her.

LOL!

Yep, you've just outed yourself!

i remember at my last job, I was surfing AN and stepped away for a moment - walked back to my computer and the CNM sitting next to me said "I KNEW you were Klone!"

As far as I know, that's the only time I've been outed. Surprisingly, most of my coworkers don't seem familiar with this website.

So far nobody has made the connection. Lots have mentioned registering, but not dedicated enough to willingly hang around our group of nutballs. I say that with all the love, really! :-D

I was an LVN at a nursing home in 2008 when one of my coworkers passed out a printed list of all the LVN to RN transition programs located in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area.

The printed list was actually one of my forum posts. No one at the workplace knew I was 'TheCommuter,' nor did I reveal my online identity. Click on the link below. Post #5 is the list that she had printed and disseminated to everyone.

No one will ever find out who I am.

I don't really exist, outside of being words and images on AN.com.

I had a co-worker call me "Blondy" once in real life. It startled me a little, but I tried not to show it. I am blond so it's not a far stretch to come up with that on your own...

I've figured out one user on AN, went to school/worked with that person...Their behavior on AN as well as the stories they told left no room for doubt as to who it was...I took it as a lesson to be very, very careful with what I post to the internet...

LOL!!!

This reminds me of Ruby Vee at Panera (?) hearing a bunch of nursing students complaining about the COBs on AN. She said she had to fight the urge to walk up to the table and say

"I'm Ruby Vee"

I wish she would have.

I was identified once -- by a very nice person. We have communicated via e-mail regarding professional stuff a few times in the course of our work. I was lucky that she is a good person.

Years ago, there was a person who seemed to mentally unbalanced talking about where I work and how she was angry about not being able to get a job here. I was afraid she would find out who I was, but she never did. Fortunately, she eventually disappeared from Allnurses.
