Freedom of speech, and peoples opinions....



  1. i did not know exactly how to title this one?

    what it comes down too, is over the last ????? amount of time, i have heard from a few people from the site.

    what i have heard, is how some who have stumbled upon this site have acted. people who find it, and figure out who others are. or they realize it is someone they know from their hospital, or facility. then they sit there and read their posts, and make a big deal out of it at work.
    what i am hoping is that some of those people (whoever they are), actually see this post and read it.

    i think it's ashame that the pot stirirs cannot leave their work issues at the workplace. some people have nothing better to do, in their free time outside of work. instead they surf to places like this, just to hit the ole gossip farm at work and stir the pot.

    this is the usa and allows us freedom of speech.

    to those that are like this, grow up.........

    to my friends from the board who have mentioned this stuff to me. confidentiality remains............

    We all need a safe place to vent, and *****ing about coworkers or patients, or bosses should be OK here if no names are used. If you wanna backstab there must be better material to use elsewhere.

    It's a shame that you'd even have to post this statement. A true shame. I agree with everyone. Maybe there should be a website called www.backstabbingwitches.com. Sheesh.

    Sad that there are those that have so little life that they thrive on making others miserable. total drama mammas!! Some people suck... I agree with CEN, they need to grow up...

    I applaud you Cen and everyone else who agrees with him on this matter! It is absolutely childish behavior indeed......no.......it's LESS than childish because even children know better to gossip!!!

    I'd be willing to bet anything that anyone who has EVER reported someone on this BB to the place of their employment IS and ALWAYS will be a frickin' FEMALE......the JEALOUSY always abounds between females, and some just can't resist the opportunity to SHINE where the SUN doesn't. :angryfire :chuckle

    CAN YOU HEAR MY LOUD AND RAPID APPLAUSE YET?????

    Ah, yes. Good point Renee. Why can't some women get along?

    However, the jealous vindictive women that report me to my place of employment aren't here, they are inlaws

    It's just a shame that a few people have ruined it for the newbies here. We're still a little shell shocked with new people.

    It's sad and very, very disheartening. It's times like this that make me HATE my profession and wish I worked at Blockbuster or at the grocery store as a checker.

    Susy, Blockbuster and checkers at the grocery store gossip and snipe also.

    Cen, I agree with you; people should be able to speak their own minds here, vent, b---- to their hearts' content, etc.; BUT never should we disclose a patient confidentiality issue here! I feel that as long as we can keep the things we vent about at a general level, NO ONE should be able to tattle on us and get us in hot water-- even when we complain about suits and administration!

    Friends,

    Quit giving women a bad name. I worked for many years in business and men will backstab each other just as much or more than women. It is a dog eat dog world out there and some of us will always feel like we are wearing IAMs brand pantyhose.

    Right on Rick.
    I'm totally sick of people who are out to get you instead of just working together. I mean, what IS their problem?????!! that they have to hurt someone else to feel better about themselves????

    *you know who you are, and if you're reading this, you need to take a good look at yourself and stop treating people like this *
