    Here Betts my sick twisted side of humor.........

    You know you have had too much coffee when...........

    at the end of the shift you are in the bathroom(well ya' know) and have a bedside table right there with all of your charting to do that of course you didn't get to during your shift..........and you still have a brand new hot cup of coffee in hand...........

    no micro has never done this thank goodness, but imagination runs rampant.........

    After one 12 hr. night with no coffee (coffee maker broken, too busy to go on a search), I came in that night to find a large thermos of coffee at the nurse's station with my name on it! Day shift (who had dealt w/me at report that a.m.) told me - "We don't EVER want to have to see you in that state again!"

    cheryl.....when the dr, RT, PT, etc. comes and sits down at nurses station and you walk by...spy their brand new steam coming off the top of the coffee.....

    and you say "Hey, thanks I needed that" and they say sure and hand it to you!

    First thing everyone says when they come in the door is: Is there coffee??? Is it drinkable?" and drink it anyway if it has been sitting there all night.
