LUV; don't play the stupid game; I'm a different kinda - page 41
STOP with the LPN vs RN ****. STOP it now! I love this site; you are all nurses. I look up to you, all of you; you are all nurses. I'm taking my TEAS V on Tuesday. I have studying everyday for a... Read More
Jan 22, '13Ugh, my reoccurring work dream is where I receive report and then I NEVER meet my patients or get my med passes done. (need to be done by 10:00) in my dream it is 0930....then 1100....crap! now its 1300, I really need to get in my rooms and meet my patients. This worsened when one patient in the dream just came back from cath lab....then it was.....I need to meet my patients. I hope nobody bled out. I hated that dream. And I have had it a few times.
My husband can go back to sleep and continue a dream. I don't think I ever have.
And the nursing/feeding topic. Once I was walking around at Disneyland, and a lady was walking and nursing her little one, (did I mention she was walking) in all her au naturale-ness. When people tell me (regarding nursing in public-I don't mind if a blanket is used. You know, be a little discreet about it) When people say "But it's natural" I want to say (and probably have ) "Yeah so is pooping or going pee but we don't do that in public"Last edit by nursefrances on Jan 22, '13
Jan 22, '13I certainly don't want to judge anyone, but yeah, some awkward moments. My in-laws would whip them feeders out anywhere. Maybe it's just delayed PTSD. (Act normal- Do Not Look- Act Nor....Oh I looked! Panic, flushing,...ok breath, be natural). Lol!!
I still have dreams I am in college at Final Grade Postings and realize I have missed a class ALL semester!!! I really did this, it was Physical Education, and we couldn't have a class below a C. I needed the class to be full time. I will never tell how I pulled that one off, but that's why I have the "I forgot" dreams constantly.
Once, My wife came in and said, "Where's Tag?" It was winter (travel RNing in Northwest Iowa) and I realized I must have forgot to let him in(rural area). I stayed out in 10 degree weather calling and calling, feeling like a monster. I get home prepared to my wife I am a murderer and a Neglectful Idiot. I was sobbing, panicked, and just in shock(could have been hypothermia). When I went in,...
"I Found'em, he was asleep in the laundry basket!"
I was too glad to see him to be mad.
Jan 22, '13Oh, and on the public pooping and peeing, let me tell you. In Central America, there is NO stigma in squatting on the side of a rural road for either function. It was like "Raising Arizona" on the bus as the American Driver in Honduras announced, "Turn to the right!" "Turn to the Right!!"
One day I was walking from the Clinic to the Pharmacy down the road, and this very cute girl around my age asked me to hold her 2 hens(tons of Market traffic), "Sure!" I said.
She proceeded to take a big fat dump while I was a captive audience with her two chickens. (Mind you I am a avid hand-washer) "Thanks!" I handed her the Hens, and a wipee from my pocket, and took the bus from there-out. You got to watch your step in flip-flops down there, I tell you from experience
Jan 23, '13Quote from BostonTerrierLoverRNJeezo Pete! I'm sorry for evading you, Boston, but I've been busy with making up Excuses!I know right? Davey(no show)Do. I limped all the way over here from the comfort of my living funeral to have some fun, and here I am, you better be da-gum glad Nursefrances saved the trip
ACT-SHOO-ALL-LEE, I only get online on the Computer at work and only for any Length of Time if when it's a Quiet Niet. We have been "filled to the Gills with Mentally Ills" (with all Due Respect to the Patients) and have some Relatively High Acuity Patients on Our Unit.
I vascillate between being the so-called "Charge" Nurse and the "Floor" Nurse and both have been busy with Admissions, Behaviors, and Direct Care.
But I'm allowed my Break Time and wish to spend a moment with you.
Okay. nursefoot-in-the-door can come too, if she wants.
Boston, please allow me to convey my Highest Admiration I can Muster to You. When I said on Your Other Post that you are My Hero, I sincerely meant it. You have Performed Acts that I can only somehow Wish to Emulate. Your Decisions and Your Sense of Humor are Models for me to follow and apply to My Own Life.
Once again: You, Sir, are My Hero.
(You don't think you could wear a cape and some red and blue spandex, for me and then stand with your hands akimbo and Boldy say some Slogan like, "NO MATTER WHERE THE FOUR WINDS BLOW, SUSHI JOE WILL GO!" could you?)
I'd appreciate it.
Davey (Sometimes Show) Do
Jan 23, '13Hahahaha, Davey (The Amazing) Do, you know my coming to the room ahead of you(and/or the elusive Sushi Joe), opened up a wonderful opportunity to poke s'more fun. Sushi Joe has become a Brand in his absence, Lol! I am far from a hero. I just ended up facing what we all will face as a mere grown sprout, ok,... maybe a "sapling" So, I just roll with the punches, and when the dirt nap comes, I feel bad about using up good ground for all the failures and mistakes I have made just this far into life, but I appreciate the "hero" nomination.
I wish I could have cured something, or saved us from an asteroid- or ended the epidemic of underwear that climb or get all discombobulated and make a pair that wears comfortably in any situation, even after hours of wear!! But, no, I haven't accomplished much of anything 'useful' (kind of like a reality show celebrity who wins an award), so I must humbly pass on the nomination of "hero" to Sushi Joe who has brought LUV and a Mutual Appreciation to LPN vs RN relations. I can't touch that with your stick. So, love me just for being able to keep the thread active for the latest greatest Joe!
Jan 23, '13I really couldn't decide which of the new allnurses logos I like best so maybe I'll make a "Sushi Joe's Place" sign or logo. Should it be Sushi Joe's Place, or Sushi Joe's or Sushi's (no), or Joe's (no, too common).
If anyone is up for some tasteless but amusing Death Humor, I'll post a link to a funny one from Rowan Atkinson. I already posted one of his here before and I thought Ted might split a gut over it.
Boston, re: the casket on sale thing .. our local Costco has an entire display with large flip pictures like those used to sell posters or vertical blind samples. Stickers denote clearance and sale caskets. Can you imagine? "Honey, which do you like best, the sage green or the burgundy? Does this one make me look fat?? Honey!!!"
Jan 23, '13I'm up for it, and have extremely poor taste and a love for the darker side of humor! When I blow the last gasket, I want them to play heavy organ music.(rather than the light chimes of birth).
I want someone to get tickled and blow soda through there nose at my funeral, but I will settle for an awkward moment(like Queens' "Another One Bites the Dust" plays, and the director jumps up and says, WRONG TAPE!! What happened to "Bridge Over Troubled Water?"
