The premenstrual nurse, and a funny one

Oktober 27, 2009 in Sonder kategorie

Sitting with my dad. My ex-schoolboyfriend-turned-dominee happened to be in the hospital to see other people after ops, phoned me and asked if he could quickly come up to this floor to pray for my dad. The I see the catheter has leaked all over the bed and floor, so I ask them to clean it up. We wait outside, softly talking.

The obviously-premenstrual-or-I-haven’t-had-sex-in-ten-years unit manager storms over to us. (All the nurses and sisters have seen me and my brother sitting with my dad today, and didn’t have any complaints.) “Do you know it’s not visiting hours?” she says, angrily and with that arrogance that a little bit of authority give some people. Yes, we do, my dominee-friend says. “I am just the dominee coming to pray for my friend’s dad.”

She looks him up and down, obviously not believing a real dominee should go around wearing shorts and a T-shirt.

“And I want to sit with my dying dad,” I say as calmly as possible. “But we have to wait outside as they have to clean everything.” 

And, lo and behold, instead of just saying “okay, well” or “sorry” or “have lots of fun” or “good luck”, she claps her hands like a schoolmarm, and explains visiting hours again. “Just so you understand it for the future.”

“What future, you stupid bitch?” I wanted to ask (but my dominee-friend would have had heart failure). My dad could be dead by tomorrow, and I must stick to visiting hours while not bothering a soul? (My dad is in a private room away from other patients, and I sit with him quietly.)

Anyhoo, here is a funny one sent by a friend. 




There is a new study about women and how they feel about their asses; the results were pretty interesting:

30% of women think their ass is too fat…………
10% of women think their ass is too skinny……

The remaining 60% say they don’t care, they love him, he’s a good man, and they wouldn’t trade him for the world!

    I commend your self control ! I would have given the unit manager a piece of my mind. Anybody that has a job working with sick and dying people should know that compassion takes priority over some petty rule. Next time the officious bitch tells you off , don’t feel the need to hold back !

  2. TRust me, I won’t. Have decided in the last few days that I should stop being so nice to all the bitches and idiots in this world. People often think they can walk right over you because you always turn the other cheek. If she messes with me tomorrow morning, I’ll go and see the big chief indian of the hospital and report her to Netcare HQ. My friend said it’s the first time in his career as a dominee that he gets told that he should stick to visiting hours.
