One of the guys at work was drinking this when I went in yesterday.
I had a call in a room where this nice old lady was in the bed. She said she had been there for a few days, but then sometime during the day, her heat went out. I took the convector apart & the power top was shot. Since the guys who fix them (they have the parts locked up somewhere) Meant she was going to have to wait until the next day to get it replaced.
No worries, because I forced the diaphragm opened so she could be warm, but she was describing some of the things that she had seen just the few days she had been at the hospital (she was a pretty sick lady) & she told me that it was obvious that I have to put up with a litany of pains in the ass.
I laughed & told her yeah, you would think that by now, I would look like Flat Top from Dick Tracy, from all the banging of my head against the walls.
Making patients laugh or feel just a little bit better, is quite a nice feeling. Even if I have to put up with stupid petty people at times.
