the ER patients creed
What a winter. There has been snow on the ground since November. Some of it melted earlier this month but was replaced sunday and monday with another 14 inches. Whoopee. Of course I had to work Monday. Even though I live in a state where this goes on every winter, lots of people call in to say that they can't make it in to work. I don't have that option, living in the city and only about 10 minutes away.
You would think that people, especially those from the neighborhood who walk to the hospital, would stay home unless they were having a true emergency. Au contraire mon ami. They make it there with there silly complaints. THey remind me of the postman.
"NEITHER SNOW NOR RAIN NOR HEAT NOR GLOOM OF NIGHT STAYS THESE CHARACTERS
FROM TAKING THEIR GOOFY SELVES TO THE ER FOR THEIR PERCEIVED EMERGENCIES."
Perhaps that should be engraved somewhere. I mean really would you tromp through the snow, spend a couple of hours in the waiting room, for a cold? Of course you wouldn't because you are normal and you have a life.
