No, really - what is your EMERGENCY?

This used to be the journal of a nursing student at a prestigious 4 year university that will still remain unnamed. This is now the journal of a Registered Nurse working in an Emergency Department in a major US city. All names have been changed to protect the stupid and the mean. There is no educational value in this journal, sometimes it will be downright mean and catty - this is where I come to vent!

Quote 'o' the school year

Ok, after consulting the hard copy quote book that we keep, here is the quote of the year for the 2004-2005 school year. Here is the set up: we were in our Individual and Family Development class last semester on a Friday afternoon. I have blogged about this class before, we hated it and the instructor was a bit ethnocentric (hey big word, eh?!). She doesn't really understand people who don't fit into the stereotypical suburban nuclear family mold. For some reason we were talking about plastic surgery and she asked our opinion on it. Hers was that we should all embrace the process of aging and love our wrinkles. My friend, we will call her Mary, is a unique person with a wonderfully quirky personality. Mary's parents are divorced and her mom has been married a couple of times since. Ok, that should be enough background.

Instructor: What do you all think about plastic surgery?
Mary: Well, as a child of a woman who loves plastic surgery, I don't have a problem with it since my mom feels better about herself if she thinks she looks better.
Instructor: What does your father think about it?
Mary: Which one??
Instructor: [silence, complimented by stupid dumbfounded look on her face]
Celine: Mary, if you are going to go drinking in the middle of the day, you have to start inviting all of us!

I'm sure it is much funnier if you were there......
