    Am I Mean?

    Only you know what is best for you. Either your don't care about the financials and his difficulty obtained his GED. If you can't get over those things, then you have to end it. It is not mean or selfish of you to do that, but you have to be firm and it has to have finality. You would need to tell him that you cannot get past that, it will not work out, and that it is your final decision in the matter. If he begs you to come back or tries to make promises, you have to stand firm. Before all that, though, you need to decide what is important to you.

    Has any female nurse had a crush on a male nurse?

    That was my first question too; however, it seems that the main reason seems to be the age reason. And, for the record, I read the title, and my first reaction was "what" also.

    Shellac Nails

    That is not hard to understand, but he issue here is not whether the gel is better or worse for one's own nails. It's is about what the risk is of harboring/passing on pathogens compared with the other nail treatments.

    Shellac Nails

    Well, we all have priorities in life. It just so happens that I don't hold googling "sheilac nails" as one of those priorities for me.

    Caddy vs Catty

    Or the computer screen as the case may be? I once saw someone chart "end title CO2 monitor in place." What was the title of the CO2 at the beginning?

    Caddy vs Catty

    As a golfer, I was hoping someone would remember to post the golf definition of caddy. If I had guess, lose vs loose (as it relates to a license) is the most "mixed up" pair of words on this site.

    'Obamacare' and your job

    I don't know the ins and outs of Obamacare, but one of the big talking points of Obama other who support the law is that the act will reduce health care costs. Well, the docs aren't going to stand there and make less money; and, it's pretty obvious that the "salaries" of the hospital CEO and other administrators is not going to go down. So, I think logic suggests how they are going to reduce the costs.

    'Obamacare' and your job

    I know my health insurance for next year costs more...a lot more! :grumpy: Yet my hourly rate has not gone up (in fact, my hospital has eliminated all raises, at least for peons like me).

    Spelling matters: it's "advice," not "advise"

    Take a deep breath (just a bit of unsolicited advise :sneaky:). In all seriousness, I totally agree with you. People say "this is only an internet forum, it doesn't matter if I spell it right [sic]." Well then, why do I see the same silly spelling and grammar mistakes in other RNs' charting at work? I don't want to be seen as the grammar/spelling police, but, if you are not 100% sure how to spell it, look it up!

    Are Nurses Bad at English? English: the Forgotten Language...

    Don't forget the practice is also dangerous and can put the nurse in legal hot water if that chart ends up in court. As for abbreviations in text messages (as well as not using proper English)--that goes well beyond nursing. I think there are people from just about every walk of life who use "text speak" in their texts. SIL (such is life), OW (oh well), TOASINH (typing out a sentence is not hard), GWI (get with it)! LOL--I think that one GWOS (goes without saying).

    Nurse opinion on this matter

    I did not try and sugar coat it and I certainly don't dismiss it as funny. Perhaps this is potentially serious to certain people...I definitely don't condone it...however, it is no where even near the seriousness of rape.

    Nurse opinion on this matter

    Talk about "a huge difference." I agree that it is wrong to "lace" someone's drink with a laxative, but there is a big gap between an immature practical joke and date rape.

    Nurse opinion on this matter

    I was referring to ending your discussion with your former classmate--I just don't see it as your place to get involved with it. If you are opposed to her behavior (which you still don't know all the facts about said behavior) then do no follow her any longer on Instagram. Problem solved.

    Nurse opinion on this matter

    And who said the person in the Instagram photo did something against the law? She saw one picture. No idea if the person she knew "went through" with the prank. For all we know, this person is in on the prank. Sure there is a difference between the OP and cheating on one's spouse...but the point is the same--she is under no obligation to intervene in either situation.

    Nurse opinion on this matter

    Because it is not her business to police the actions of everyone she ever knew. What if I saw someone I knew in HS over a decade ago and I have only seen one time since at a class reunion. I know he is married, yet he is in a bar hitting on a woman and laying it on thick. Does that mean I should walk up to him and admonish him for his actions? I think not. Do I approve of that behavior? No. May it cause him harm? Possibly. Should I say something? Absolutely not my place.
