Why did the chicken cross the border?

Those are just two examples but they make me want to tell them to go find another job. Everyone has bad days but these people are with us for a purpose and they are relying on us!

I was hanging out at the nurses station one day, waiting to check the medication records, when one of our new (very confused) patients came up to the desk. She was foaming at the mouth and I was alarmed. She said, "It's kinda tangy!" Turns out she was chewing her denture tablets...we took the box out of her room. I am not laughing, I am NOT laughing...

I have to go around to different areas of the hospital during my pain clinic days. Our group room is at the end of the hall by outpatient psychiatry, with the assessment unit and wards at the other end of the hall, behind "locked" glass doors.

There is this little elderly lady that I often see just standing by the doors looking out. One of my classmates started laughing and discretely pointing ahead. Here was the woman with a pair of underwear on her head and a sign in childish chicken scratch...."please help me there are crazy people here"!

Now I know why I keep coming back here day after day. Because all of this makes perfect sense to me. It seems very normal. Nothing gets to me. Nothing gets to me. Nothing gets to me.

Another lady was looking at her hands, would turn them over and look again, she kept flipping her hands back and forth. I finally asked her what was wrong. She held her hands out and said, " Look...look at them...my fingers are on backwards."

It took at least 30 minutes for me to get my breath back...

Yesterday my DH, my daughter and I went to KFC and we enjoyed very much. The weather was also cloudy, little cooler than previous days.

Since I once got laughingly chided for posting here in more than one sentence, I will say that I had a great day because I passed my six month check up with flying colors.
