I am working so much this week so I don't have anything to blog.
I got this funny story in my e mail the other day. I especially love it because I am a nurse:)
You gotta love a good nurse.....A motorcycle patrolman was rushed to the
hospital with inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him
that all was well,However, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at
the hairs in his crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery the
doctors hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his
hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was making him so
uncomfortable.Taped firmly across his pubic hair were three wide strips
of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily. Written in large
black letters was the sentence:'Get well soon....from the nurse in the
Jeep you pulled over last week...'
This is a true story now. I went to Midwifery school with a former ER nurse. She was driving with her husband in LA and they were pulled over for blown out taillight. Instead of giving a fix it ticket, the asshole cop (sorry if any cops are reading) made them get out of the car and sit on the curb. The cop told them they they were looking for a suspect that is Hispanic (her husband is Hispanic) for a domestic disturbance in Compton. Andrea told the cop "we are on our way home from Target, and we don't live anywhere near Compton." Andrea even told the cop she was a nurse and worked the ER and Assured the cop her husband could not possibly be involved in a domestic disturbance. He wouldn't listen, and made them sit there for 1 hour until a call came over the radio that they caught the guy.
He was STILL in Compton.
Andrea found out later that night at work, from another cop that the guy was on foot. The whole time! The cop who pulled them over was being an asshole. But, it gets better.
Andrea worked night shift in an LA hospital. So, 2 weeks after this incident, guess who rolls in with a prisoner? Yep! The asshole cop.
The prisoner was not hurt bad, required a few stitches. It's courtesy that the ER will see these pts. as soon as possible so the cop can leave. It was towards the end of his shift and he needs to get this dude out of there so he can book him and go home himself. But, when Andrea told her co workers that this was the asshole cop, he was treated with the same courtesy as he showed Andrea.
It was decided by the Doctor that this dude, after his stitches, would need an x ray. Since it wasn't an emergency, he would have to wait until after all the urgent cases. When the cop complained and asked for some courtesy because he was at the end of his shift Andrea told him "You will get the same courtesy you gave to my husband a few weeks ago."
Andrea said they laughed their asses off watching him pout in the waiting room.
I wish I had that kind of power sometimes;)
