Pretty please

After my last weekend call, I'm officially banned from L&D per nursing staff :

"You just walk onto the floor and shit happens!"

"You ARE the full-fucking-moon!"

"STOP IT!!!!!!!"

"Shit magnet."

"Black cloud"

Crossing fingers that my partners agree to take me off call.  ;) Somehow, I doubt it.

Boys are silly

My son was staring at his fist this morning. "My brain is this wait. My heart!"

Made me giggle.

Is the bane of my existence. I hate call. I hate my phone. I hate my ringtone, which was the loudest one I could find (I'm a sound sleeper). I hate stupid questions (and yes, they most definitely exist). I will not drive back to the office at 4:45 on a Friday to do your prior auth. Sorry. Oh, GAWD, Jennifer Crazypatient paged again. Did you not get the memo that this is an emergency line? No, I can't schedule your next appointment - docs don't have access to the scheduling system. Call during office hours. Someone in the office called you and you're returning the call? Sorry, I have no clue why she called you - call back during office hours.

I don't mind going in for deliveries - but I prefer them during reasonable hours. I'm happy (sorta) to talk to the ER docs about what to do. I don't mind rounding on weekends - things are usually calm and I chat up the nurses. Frequently I bribe them with a dozen donuts.

But my phone. must. die.
