Quote of the night

Young woman comes in via EMS @0200.

Not too bright, not too nice, not too clean.

C/O pelvic/abd pain x 2 weeks with vag bleed x 1 week.

Over the course of the next few hours, I obtain samples of blood via needle, urine via Foley catheter, and cervical swabs (no, not from her neck) for GC/Chlam cultures.

She's d/c'd with a dx of UTI and normal monthly menses.

After exiting the ER and climbing into the cab, she climbed back out and ran back inside to tell me, yes, me, "Thank you so much for being so nice to me." She then left again.

Much hilarity ensued. Charge nurse said, "OOOOH MonkeyGirl, she liked you."

Cynical, obnoxious nurse responded with,"No kidding. She let MG get to third base, didn't she?"

Ew. I need a shower.

So let me get this straight...If a person comes in and is rude and obnoxious to you, you will post about it derisively and tell us how much said person sucks, and if some poor dumb girl who probably gets treated like shit by everyone around her goes out of her way to tell you thank you, you will post about it derisively and tell us how much she sucks?
