    In a slight situation....

    Sorry. I thought FWB was universally understood as Friends With Benefits. He is now working on the "units," meaning, floor nurse/bedside nurse. We say units around these woods. I'm a unit nurse; He is a surgical nurse. But sometimes he has to work the "units." To everyone else, I'm not very happy with this guy as a nurse or a father. It's definitely time for me to bail. It will be very odd seeing him on the units and I'm sure he is going to talk bad about me, call me crazy, etc. That's how he seems to roll. But luckily, I have a pretty solid rep amongst other nurse, while his rep is as a gossiper.

    See that's where it gets confusing for me. He is not with one child's mother because she divorced him to be with her "boyfriend". My boyfriend wanted to work it out and go to counseling, but she refused. This divorce was not on him. The other childs mother was conceived shortly after his divorce. She was his FWB. And he was her FWB. Both of them were in the mindset that it's ONLY sex. She became pregnant for the first time at age 34. She told him that she could not have children. Uggh. Now that I'm writing this down, I can see him in a different light. I need to get out of this rship. He is pretty messed up.

    OMG, I also judge people by how they treat waitstaff, animals, etc. He tips waitstaff 20 percent and is so nice to them. He loves animals and will not even smash a spider. And he loves kids and babies! But he has 2 small children of his own and I think he shows extreme favortism towards one child over the other. Extreme. I called him out on it, and he said he is not as close to that child because he only gets to see him 6 days/month and he has a poor rship with that child's mother. But his other child, he has full time and has a good ship with that child's mom. I don't agree with showing favortism towards kids, even if u feel it. The difference in how he treats them has always kinda bothered me.

    In a slight situation....

    met my bf from match.com. we clicked because we are both nurses at the same hospital. Neither of us knew each other from work because I work on the unit and he works in surgery. We've been together 6 months. It has been a good rship, but 2 of my surgery friends told me at the beginning that he is not cool to work with because he thrives on the gossip, and, he is really flirty with nurses that he works with. I didn't care what their opinion was. Until now. The hospital is making changes with how they staff, etc and he is now working the units at times. My manager knows we are dating and there is not a policy against 2 people dating and working together. And my GOD, he does thrive on the gossip! And he is flirty with other nurses in a very suave way. But what I can't stand is the gossip BS. He is making a judgement call on a nurse who he doesn't really know that well. He only knows what he hears and he has NO consideration or empathy for the BS she has been through in her life (she is 55 yo). He tells me she is "crazy," etc. No, she isn't. She is differnet. And she's had a rough life. Also, I HATE how he and a few other nurses talk about a patient being crazy during report. For example, "Patient in room 6 is here for n/v/d. She has hisrory of depression, bipolar CHF, etc. She hasn't had any GI issues since her admission. She is kinda crazy. she wanted me to....blah blah blah." Nobody is crazy in my book unless you are a serial killer, etc. Just because someone doesn't act like the NORM does not make them crazy. My mom moved to this small town USA after growing up in NYC and living there for 39 years. People here viewed her as crazy because she WAS way different than the people here. And she was a mouthy Italian. She is far from "crazy" though. And she does have depression and bpd. I am now reluctnat to tell my bf about her illness because he will probably judge her. And judge me! Some nurses suck.
