I dated a girl who was a trauma nurse. The gangbangers who came in all shot up were her favorites. Getting capped was the least of these idiot's worries, because Rhonda would tease them with pain meds ("Want some of this? Well you GOTTA WAIT another HOUR.") Oh she was ruthless. If a wound would start to bleed she would apply pressure to stop it and this girl was completely sadistic! These big tough guys screaming like little girls! She gave me the play-by-play and I swear she would almost become aroused!Mitchell?":3stw1z8u said:Ahh, ER physicians are hilarious.
My father worked in the ED for the longest time, and I swear, ER doc's are the least sympathetic people ever.
But they're hilarious, working in the ED will give you a damn good sense of humour about things, keeps you alive among all the bad shit.
Yeah, my dad has told me also "If the ER doc isn't fucking with you, you're fucked." (Sorry for the f-bombs)Multibomber":2lsg2en8 said:My mom was a trauma nurse and she said if the doctors arent joking around with you its because you're about to die. Everyone who deals with life and death all the time have a very morbid sense of humor. My dad was a doctor (thats how my parents met) and whenever I had some kind of injury, my mom couldnt look at all, so my dad would have to take care of it. He'd ALWAYS greatly exaggerate the degree of injury. More than a few times he'd convinced me I was goin to lose a limb or finger or organ...
My mom still uses the line whenever giving injections or anything with blood "Nurse?! God no, I just vacuum the floors; but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night."
