Totally Blog Worthy!



I've decided I am going to write a book entitled, "Things you shouldn't do on the job",  thanks to my life experiences and lessons I've learned...
#1.  Don't ever sit on a chair unless you know its not someone's bed side camode!

So...today at work I went into my patient's room to discuss a few things with them.  Another specialist was already in the room and we were all talking.  Everyone was sitting down but me, so I felt awkward standing over them.  I saw a white plastic chair sitting next to the bed and sat on it to be eye level with everyone else.  The "chair" felt a little different then the typical chair and definately didn't have much bootie support, something was definately missing.  Oddly enough, the seat was covered with a towel.  Finally, when I and the Dr. were leaving the room we kind of stopped in the entry way to say a few more things to the patient.  I took one last look at the "chair" and realized it had an odd bucket attached underneath it.  Yup, that seat I had been sitting on was definately my patient's bedside camode!  I immediately just started laughing out loud, this would only to happen to me.  Now I know why the patient kinda gave me a few strange glances when I pulled out the chair to sit down, I was sitting in the very spot they do their business.  AWESOME!  Way to make a good impression!  To make matters worse, being the nerd I am, the stupid book in my jacket pocket got stuck on the chair/camode arm when I was getting up and the Dr. tried to help pull me up!  OMG I am such a retard!  Why do these things happen to me?  Andy is right, I have no common sense.  Sure enough this resembles my "chair" minus the white towel over the seat!  Would anyone else mistake it for something other than a toilet but me?  I THINK NOT!

Jen that is awesome, that might be my favorite story about you now!! I think I would die laughing if one of our Dr sat on the patients commode, at least there was a towel over it.
