    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I will read the article but I've also posted many times I don't support Israel.

    Of course, I've posted many times that he's adolescent. I'm talking from Israel's perspective not his.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I'm pretty catty but I'm not the President of the United State fat shaming a protestor. So catty and immature of him. Grade school people bully others when they feel threaten. What example is he setting? Please Republicans I beg of you, pick someone else. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/08/15/trump-new-hampshire-rally-protester-got-serious-weight-problem/2025945001/?fbclid=IwAR09vTxHQbB1X97uloY5XluFAkAmNxL7UKufuOmi9LEOWRPmpcO9ezJmhMI

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    If anyone can find any evidence of this and his acceptance speech of this high honor in Michigan let me read it. https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/16/politics/donald-trump-michigan-man-of-the-year-fact-check/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_content=2019-08-16T18%3A02%3A59&utm_medium=social&utm_source=fbCNN&fbclid=IwAR2KcKRLIg1UYIdT2oPEf68SqsjcjlgnNZnBExZKiB-U3AFUVI2_pu2j-84

    Saturday August 17 2019

    G'day! sirI, thanks for moving the thread. Story of my life is the minute I let my guard down I'm making the same mistakes over again. Sorry about the neuropathic pain. BC, what concert did you go to. I always schedule the next day off if I'm going to be out later that 9pm. Ha ha J22, hope you had fun at the fair. Our fairs are always during the winter when it's it's cooler. The State Fair is in February and nearby and I've been a couple of times. Survived my overtime week. Yesterday was horribly busy. I was also orienting a new nurse for the first 8 hours. We have several nurses on orientation, if no one quits we might be set if it gets busy during the winter months. The night shift victim nurse was a bit annoying. Everyone has one of those "I always have the worst assignments" nurses. She complained "I have all the dementia patients". No she didn't but she did have two, one of whom I had myself and was in charge and know to be an easy patient. During report with a guy I was showing her where to doppler under the cast and she was asking other things. Finally I said that I would get to that but wanted to show her the doppler so it was done for this three hour period. "I got that and we can move on". It was a bit embarrassing because this guy is very anal about having his graft deplored on time and properly. I have a MAJOR pet peeve of people not listening to my report and interrupting with questions I'm going to answer if they let me give my head to toe report. Another guy does this to me and then asks "what is the IV"...and I want to scream "Idiot, I told you but you weren't listening and kept interrupting" End of rant. Thankfully, next paycheck will have overtime and I'm off for four days. Nothing on the agenda today but straightening up the house, laundry and gym. We've been getting much more rain this past week than normal and just got a major storm again. Rivers are starting to rise and not receding quick enough and streets are flooding in some areas. Better than a drought I suppose. Have a great day!
  6. G'day. What day is it? I can hardly keep up. I hate working three days in a row, but I did it to my self to get some extra money to offset the cost of my stove and SlowBros vet bills. It's always something straining my finances but glad to have the opportunity during the slower summer months to get some hours. I read recently the other big hospital in town is building a new 90 bed tower with all private rooms. I'm sure it will be beautiful and they'll strain the nursing supply in town and probably take a lot of our nurses as they've been known to do. Hope my employer responds with market pay raise adjustments. This was the hospital I was considering interviewing with and perhaps still will. The dreaded Thursday was pretty dreadful but the admissions were balanced on both units and a charge capable nurse handled one side and I handled the other and it seemed to go smoothly, especially since a nurse came in to help 11-7. Having proper staffing sure helps. Anyway, I hope everyone has a good day.
  7. Stars, I didn't mention my ex also had not only to get his primary care MD but a neurologist to declare him incompetent (maybe that's a Florida thing) and like I said, my ex had financial resources that you guys might not have. Anyway, maybe there's some help for that. I was surprised that I was in charge on my overtime shift. It went okay but manager sent me to a "medication safety committee" meeting for an hour and a half. That messed my day up. Today is the "dreaded Thursday" and I'm not looking forward to that. But manager found a nurse to come in 11-7 to help with post ops admissions. Saw my paycheck that's to be deposited tomorrow and it has last week's OT on it. Very happy. Have a great day.
  8. G'day! Stars, sorry that it's an ongoing issue, and no there isn't a magic pill and you can't snow her. Husband really needs to declare here incompetent and get legal power over everything. Next-of-kin status is one thing, legal power of attorney is another. It is a process. All Nannie has to do is put on that sweet face and say "now I'm not doing that" and legally the hospitals or facilities won't do anything. My ex went through that with his dad who wound up driving to Miami (hundreds of miles from home and he was lost) and it was a "come get him" kind of situation rather than admit for any kind of evaluation. He also was spending a lot of money for no good reason on stupid stuff and investments. He was then able to take his car, take over financing, and place him in an ALF (his dad had resources and made no promise to take care of his dad, it wasn't possible as he was working and an only child). If your doc is willing to declare her incompetent that's a good start. All the best. Overtime day for me. I thought maybe float team members might need placing and I would be called off, but no call, so I hope it's good staffing with me there extra. Yesterday was a good quiet day. It's our rainy reason still and true to nature, were getting some rain which is nice.
  9. Good morning! Stars, I'm so sorry to read about Pippy. My sincere condolences. Not much going on around here. Going to mop the floors and get ready for he work days to come. Visiting best friend for lunch after yoga class to help him out. He's on the bone stimulator to heal his foot fracture for 10 hours a day for the foreseeable future. Have a good day.
  10. Are you guys seeing a box with a ? mark in my post above. I posted a paragraph about work yesterday. with a smiley face and it posted, then went back to edit a spelling error which I wasn't able to do and then see the ?.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I spent a lot of time with an 85 year old alert and oriented patient this weekend who was watching Fox News. He asked if I watched Fox News and I said, I don't have cable and don't watch TV news (true). He said, "at least they tell it like it is". He went on to say "Trump has had to put up with more than any other president ever". Me: well there has been no other president like him. I left it at that. He just gives us so much to work with. Again, it might be catty, but I know that Asian acquaintances and co-workers I have hate when American white people fake Asian accents. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/trump-asian-accent-mock-south-korea-japan-870252/?fbclid=IwAR34k2aQswVI4m4lp8TpssPAzkPgjGwZ0FQO94Gw1xwsg64CxPp4rYCN2vQ
  12. Good morning! Ted, glad to hear that despite Amy's stress that the audience is responding positively to the show. Joe have a good day. I was wondering when you said you only cook one or two things a week, but also said you were going to do the cooking for the week. Do you cook one or two huge meals and eat that all week? Didn't post yesterday, nothing much to say. We are put people on call this weekend because the census was real low. I was able to squeak in some overtime because I was in charge Saturday. Sunday was non-eventful but busy. I got a transfer from another floor who had a hip fracture and we took her on our floor post op. The report I got from the fifth floor was "she's a pain in the butt, just keep her sedated". I found her quite delightful and she said "you're the nicest and sanest person I met here". She obviously doesn't know my cray cray. I think sometimes people see and older anxious person and label them and don't talk or listen to them. Anyway, off today and tomorrow trying to decide if I want to try and get overtime this week. One or two more overtime shifts will restock my emergency fund that I took out for the cost of the stove. I can do overtime if I have a goal in mind. Then again, overtime tires me out and I love being off work.

    Question for young nurses

    I think it would depend on if you're just a local store or you are also an online seller. Young people use phone apps I think more than computers like us older folks, and definitely not magazines. Maybe find a way to target people on Instagram and sights like Kik or the new popular app TikTok https://influencermarketinghub.com/tiktok-marketing-for-beginners-a-marketers-guide-to-advertising-on-tiktok/

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    It seemed a no brainer they would support the coal miners, the silence for over a week to ten days was deafening. I suppose supporting the miners would also somehow call attention to the failing coal industry which has been in decline for many years. Clinton was at least honest about that. Trump said he would save it.

    Presidential Election 2020

    If my opinion is that the question is stupid, then why would I be interested in his answer? People love to ask questions to trip up politicians. Yes, he could have answered in a better manner rather that being so irritable. I think he knew he was being set up but should have had a discussion. He's usually at his best on the campaign trail and in his element and on his game. Politicians are human and get frustrated sometimes. Trump more than once has answered a question with "what a stupid stupid question, you're always asking stupid questions" "no I'm not answering you, you're fake news". But they are in the public eye and should act in a mature manner.
