Ohhh, Queen! I'm the same way. I just turn it up and then get sad thinking "what if Freddie were still here?" Think of the awesome music that could've been. My 11 yr old daughter thankfully doesn't mind my going full volume on all things Queen.

My mom used to embarrass the jebesus out of me running into the room and doing "The Jerk" to my 80's music. Sheesh, mom. But now I totally do the running man to purposefully embarrass Poo Jr and her friends totally crack up (or they love laughing at me when I'm gone.) But, WHO CARES...I'm awesome at the running man!

Lol that's what makes being a parent fun!

Forget the comic's name, but someone had a routine that started "Wouldn't it be funny if kids really DID die of embarrassment when their parents did things?"

Just because I got myself better & I might be medicated doesn't mean I'm not bitey.

Getting bitey is sometimes the highlight of my day!!

Love ya OC.

Sorry for the rambling - stream-of-concioussness I just subjected y'all to. Lol

Nah, no apologies necessary. I got into it with someone on one of the other threads about the same topic but I'm staying out of this one.

Besides the obvious danger of pts not realizing they're getting erroneous advice from someone that doesn't know what they're talking about, I have another small issue with CNAs representing themselves as nurses.

I have, on occasion, had to tell a pt something they didn't want to hear. Do/don't do this; no you can't eat that, etc., only to be told the 'other' nurse' said the opposite. Then I have to waste my time explaining that person isn't a nurse, no you can't do/eat that and why and have the pt repeat it to me so I know they understand. And since it's what they don't want to hear they get upset with me, have fired me, complained to mgmt, etc. All because a CNA was practicing outside her scope.

And since you are giving the undesirable advice, you are clearly the one who is wrong. The "other nurse" who says twinkies are fine for diabetics to eat until 2 hours before surgery is clearly right.

I've learned that I'd much rather wear stockings because I am so pale and now have chub rub. I feel naked bc I had to throw out my hose. In the middle of clinic.

I really don't have any experience with techs acting like nurses, the ones I've worked with know and do their jobs very well. And, I don't see NETY either. But...I have seen TEYN on occasion, Techs Eating Young Nurses. Lord help a new nurse that makes a mistake or even just does something different in front of a seasoned tech. lol, kinda, in a sad way.
