the ER bitch follies
If you wonder why the ER staff is cynical.... If you wonder why the ER staff sometimes seems to be going through the motions...If you wonder why the ER staff doesn't greet you like a rich person going into Tiffanys, here's why: It is because of people like the woman who called my coworker "a fucking bitch" yesterday. She was a fucking bitch because the ER doc chose not to fulfil her dream of a script for narcotics.
These are the kind of people we are dealing with on a daily basis folks. Now I want you to imagine a job where you have to be highly skilled, a mistake may lead to death, peoples lives can be literally in your hands...then I want you to imagine that you just helped saved someones life...next person you deal with calls you a "fucking bitch" because they didn't get their narcs.
