I'm a rural RN, working in the middle of nowhere and I LOVE IT!! I love travel, art, running, cooking, baking, books, juicing. I Hope to someday soon be hired on a Peds/PICU unit. The best part of my life is being aunt to the two cutest kids ever, and a mom to my dachshund and cat, Shirley.
My work uses a program called Hot Schedules to schedule us, and allow us to communicate. I made a plea to my co workers to work for me, as I have a haunted leg (aka a cold), and the system did not appreciate my fowl mouth.
Having a laugh - Oregon State Troopers, Good, Better, Best :D
GOOD A Bend ,Oregon policeman had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn’t getting many. Then he discovered the problem—a 12-year-old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign, which read ‘RADAR TRAP AHEAD.’ The officer also found the boy had an accomplice who was down the road with a sign reading ‘TIPS’ and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)
BETTER A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar post in Pendleton, Oregon. A $40 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40. The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.
BEST A young woman was pulled over for speeding. An Oregon State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. She said, “I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the State Trooper’s Ball.” He replied, “Oregon State Troopers don’t have balls.” There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, tipped his hat, got back in his patrol car and left.
