Maybe one day I will have some followers...maybe one day I will have the time to blog on a daily basis!
Being an ER nurse is not the easiest job in the world--yeah the money is great but sometimes I think having a little bit of sanity is priceless! Just the other day at work I had an involuntary commitment (a.k.a. crazy,homicidal, suicidal, or just all 3 wrapped into 1). I took him his breakfast tray--the conversation went as follows:
me--"hello, here is some breakfast if you're hungry"(the breakfast tray consisted of eggs, bacon, carton of milk and oj)
him--"I can't eat"
nuff said--I leave.
30 minutes later....this guy is trying to walk out the front door. Security!!!
He starts yelling "I want to talk to the doctor!!! I want a phone to call my wife!!!" (his wife is the one who had him committed)
I told him "Sorry but you can't have a phone right now."
He says "I'm thirsty and you guys can't even give me anything to drink!!!"
Oh hell no!! I know he just didn't say that when 30 minutes prior I had gave him a meal that any homeless person would have killed for.
I proceed to show him that on the bedside table sit a meal tray where not 1 but 2 digestible liquids sit untouched!! He then says "How can I reach it when it is sitting all the way over there?"
I then respond by saying "Dude! The same way you almost walked out the front door!!"
And then comes my verbal abuse for the day---his response "Shut the f**k up you ugly fat ass bitch!! You f**king whore!!"
My co-worker quickly tells me "Kristi, you're not ugly!"
Aww jee thanks!
