So I'm working in the ER tonight- and a family came in with flu symptoms. Granted, there are TONS of rude people that come through here on a daily basis, but this dude (the father) particularly got on my last nerve. We have a nurse working tonight that has just finished a round of chemo to battle her cancer. Her WBC is incredibly low because of it, which makes her VERY succeptible to ANY bugs, so she routinely wears a mask- even if her patients have no symptoms of a contageous illness- for her protection. I chose to put a mask on this time simply because my mother is severly immuno compromised, and I do not want to bring anything home to her if I can help it. As the nurse I mentioned earlier and I taking these patients back to their room, the father (who is younger than me) is saying, "Look babe- they're wearing masks! They work in a freaking HOSPITAL and they are afraid of getting SICK! HaHa!!!" Normally this would have rolled off me like water off a duck's back, but tonight- it just ticked ME OFF!!! Maybe it's because it's that time of the month, or maybe it's because I am in no mood for inconsiderate, ignorant people tonight!!!!
