Not In Her Job Description
December 28, 2007
I think at the hospital where J is, RN must stand for Registered Nutjob. His admitting nurse, who cared for him all last night is C-R-A-Z-Y. In doing all the paperwork, she kept asking us stuff, and we answered, then 60 seconds later she would ask again. He told her 10 times he had a headache and hadn’t gotten anything for it, asked her 5 times for a pair of scrub pants, and never recieved either.
The deciding factor in her lack of sanity, however, occurred when she asked J where he worked. When he told her, her eyes got big and she said, “Those people there are crazy”. Yeah lady, it’s a home for people with psychological problems. She continued, “Seriously, those people are crazy, I used to have to go there when I was a social worker, they’re crazy”. J’s sitting there like, yeah, I know, I work there. She kept on, saying, “I went back to school to be a nurse, I couldn’t stand being around all those crazy people when I was a social worker.
The woman got a degree in social work, and was surprised that her job required her to deal with “crazy people”. That’s like the people who join the army and are like, “oh crap, you mean I have to go to war? I want out”. Or, an elementary education graduate saying, “I have to work with CHILDREN?” What did she think social worker’s did?
