1. When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a *****.
    When I stand up for those I love, they call me a *****.
    When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a *****.
    Being a ***** means I won't compromise what's in my heart.
    It means I live my life MY way.
    It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.
    When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak up against it, I am
    defined as a *****.
    The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.
    It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should" be.
    I am outspoken, opinionated and determined.
    By God, I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!
    So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me.
    You won't succeed.
    And if that makes me a *****, so be it.
    I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

    B - Babe
    I - In
    T - Total
    C - Control of
    H - Herself

    B = Beautiful
    I = Intelligent
    T = Talented
    C = Charming
    H = Hell of a Woman

    Send this to all the *****es you know, or anyone you feel should become a *****!
    From the Sisterhood of *****dom!!!
    May we all get what we want, when we want it and how we want it, because we sure as hell deserve it!!

    I cringe when I walk into my children's school because I feel that they think this way about me. I have been acting the advocate for my boys since we got here. Both of my boys have special needs and I have really had to push for them to get what they need from this school. Too DARN BAD. They don't even look me in the eye over there anymore ! I will remember this post next time I go there.

    Nurse Angie--I, too, have a special needs student. I once told them that it was NOT my intention to be the "mother from Hell", but if that's what it took to get my son what he needed, I was willing to do it. I said it very cheerfully and w/a big smile on my face. They knew I meant it, too.

    OH yeah baby, another one checking in!

    Once in my first ICU job, a cocky resident brought up a pt to be intubated. It was lunch time, only 2 nurses in the unit, and secretary at lunch too, I was in charge. They brought the pt up, she was a lovely shade of navy blue. I looked at the resident, he was outside the room chatting and telling a joke, I couldn't believe my eyes.

    I said Hey! Get in here and get this woman tubed, we don't have time for jokes! He was sooooo pi$$ed! He came in and about 4 times got in the esophagus. I was exasperated. I stepped outside the room, and saw an excellent female surgical resident. "Ella," I called, "please come in here, we need you to tube this woman." She ran in, and popped the tube in with no problem.

    Next day, another resident, who was my buddy, came up and told me that the idiot had annouced to everyone at the morning meeting to watch out for that B***h Linda in ICU. I cracked up! I was so proud! LOL!

    You got another one here!

    Started getting on my NA's about their shoddy work. I mean when you're short staffed and try your hardest to meet the needs of the pt is one thing, but laziness is another. Couple of days later I gave this pt his meds and he said, " Is it true that you're the "******" on the floor? Depends..."Everyone's calling you the "******" b/c you ****** about them being lazy." Proudly I responded, "Indeed I am!" "You guys are far more important than computer games!!!"
