  • Glad to hear all went well and you and your family are home, safe and sound. Congrats!

    As to the nurse, they do see and assist a large and varied group of people. However, that's her job, and part of the responsibility that comes with that job is to treat people as individuals and not as generalities.

    The long and short of it is that she was rude. It's none of her friggin' business one way or the other, and in no way falls within even the most liberal interpretation of her job description. She was just being nosey, and she was doing it in a quite callous manner.

    Now, before all of the feel-good crowd starts berating me and pummeling me about the head and shoulders, consider this: Exactly why did the nurse want to know if he had a good job? If his wife had said "no," was the nurse going to financially pitch in and help? For what purpose was she requesting the information?

    Exactly. She had no purpose. She was being nosey. She was being rude. She was being suspicious. And she was being callous. Plain and simple.

    I seriously doubt that I would have shown the restraint of your wife. Kudos to her.
