Thunderstorm Thursday....

So the weather is dreary and cold- I feel I should be in a moor in Ireland somewhere- and all I really want to do is stay in bed with a good book. Instead, I am at work taking care of the sick and downhearted. My patience level is at a minimal level and the rain is not helping.

Traffic was abysmal this morning and it took twice as long to get to work (made somewhat more tolerable by the fact that I was driving a beautiful new car). I was flicked off by no less than 4 people during said drive, the last occurring in the hospital parking lot. Clearly everyone has woken up on the wrong side of the bed......

Inside the hospital most people are chipper, if you have to be at work- make the best of it must be the motto of the day. However, the patients and families are miserable. I walk into my first new patient of the day and find that the family member at the bedside is the same individual who flicked me off in the parking lot! What a miserable individual she turned out to be. You gave my mother Lung Cancer! she screams.... I can only assume that we diagnosed her with lung cancer is what she is referring to. Doing my best to control myself, I calmly explained to her that likely the lung cancer could be caused from the 3 packs of camel unfiltered her mother chose to smoke for the past 45 years. The day has just progressed from there. I have seen only the mentally insane and mean patients in the hospital and the drug rep that gave me hives was back.... Seriously, anyone want to buy a house with me in Australia- I am going to become a large animal vet and treat kangaroos......

Large animal vet? Did that come from the clip of the kangaroo jumping onto the Australian Nascar track during the race?

Can you get practice looking at a large orange cat (we're pretty sure he's feline) that won't stop peeing every where?

ack!

well, since you seem to still be employed, you didn't haul off and hit her, which I think shows tremondous restraint
