Mean people suck

So I wake up this morning and I feel like I'm getting sick - you know that feeling, headache-y, sore throat, stuffy, weak, etc. And I'm very lucky that I have a laptop and can work from home and no one ever gives me a hard time when I need to do that. But today, I had to go in - there were a couple of things that I just had to do and I had to physically be there to do them. So I went, hoping I'd feel better. But I didn't, I started to feel worse and worse. Then I answered the phone to find a semi-psychotic student on the other end, who yelled at me for a good 5 minutes before I finally just hung up. I was drained and really feeling crappy now, and it's not even noon yet. I started to get ready to leave, only to be confronted by a fully psychotic angry Nursing student who thinks we should change the way we do things simply because she doesn't like it, is basically the bottom line. I have no idea why, but our Nursing students at the college where I work have always had a bad reputation. When I started working there, I thought it was weird that everyone hated the Nursing students. Four years later, now I know why. I'd say about half of them are complete nightmares. The other half are compassionate, bright, sweet people. Uunfortunately, the fact that half are rude, obnoxious, miserable jerks really stands out - half is a lot. I do not understand how or why people like this even want to be nurses, to tell you the truth. If you cannot have a conversation with another adult without yelling like a fool just because you don't get your way, you are NOT cut out to be a nurse. Actually, they probably won't end up nurses, and that would be a good thing. I would run screaming from the hospital room, IV pole trailing behind me, if any of those wretches showed up as MY nurse, let me tell you. HMPH! So I came home immediately after letting that horrible girl make me cry, and then cried even more cuz I was mad at myself for letting her get to me like that. But you know how it is when you just don't feel good - any other day, I probably wouldn't have let it bother me that much at all! I came home and crawled into bed and took a nap. I still don't feel good, but I can't sleep. I am going to eat dinner with the kids and take some night-time cold medicine and hope I can sleep tonight!

  1. OH MAN !! I hope she doesn't make it through the program cuz things WON'T go her way at the hospital that is for sure.

    here is a thought for you..."Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures...remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and slap the person upside the head."


    HUGS, Lnda
