Giving the nurse a taste of her own medicine! 93



View Profile

One time I got sick and landed in hospital.

There was this one particular nurse that just drove me crazy.

Every time she came in, she would talk to me like I was a little child.

She would say in a very patronising tone of voice, “And how are we doing this morning?” Or “Are we ready for a bath?” or “Are we hungry?”

I had had enough of this particular nurse.

One day at breakfast, I took the apple juice off the tray and put it in my bedside stand.

Later I was given a urine sample bottle to fill for testing. So you know where the juice went!

The nurse came in a while later, picked up the urine sample bottle, looked at it and said,

My, my, it seems we are a little cloudy today. At this, I snatched the bottle out of her hand, popped off the top, and gulped it down, saying,

“Well, I’ll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time!”

The nurse fainted… I just smiled.

  2. Excellent . I have found as we become older, the younger tend to patronise, speak down to you. They won’t realise until they are our age how annoying it is.

  3. That’s the way. I kno the nurses mean well but do they have to talk to us like we’re children. We are I’ll not deaf.
