However. I have one rule. The chicanery isn't necessary. I'll still take your damn report regardless of whether everything is done. I'll find out eventually what isn't after your ass is long out the door, but it will be more work for me to investigate the matter. Don't lie straight to my face and tell me stuff is done and then make up some bullshit story when I ask you about it. Just be a grown up, look at me in my face, and tell me that you consider yourself an excellent nurse despite the fact that you decided to leave me shit that was ordered as stat 8 hours prior to me getting here. Really. That's all I ask. I will pat you on the back and tell you to go home, have a glass of wine and a bubble bath and pat yourself on the back for being so awesome. Then I will silently file your name into the douchebag section of my mental rolodex.
Which brings me to the real point of this post-obviously lying and doing it poorly makes you a douchebag in my book, but at what point does unapologetically leaving a bunch of shit for someone else to do also put you in that category?" ER BFF and I were discussing this and had differing opinions, so I wanted to poll the internets and figure out- how old does an order have to be for you to feel like it should have been done already? I feel like three hours- an order written at 4PM in the 7P-7A world- should probably have been taken care of before I get there unless a really good explanation is offered. She felt that 2 hours- an order written at 5PM- should be plenty of time. But we both get stuff done pretty fast, so who knows, maybe we are princess bitches after all. So please give me your feedback, inter webs. I kind of want to use the power of math to average all the responses together so I can feel like I have a concrete number which I will, of course, use
for academic research to quantitatively justify thinking someone is a douche.
