High School All Over Again
This is another post that I want to do in one of the most tasteful ways possible.
I love my job. I truly do. I get paid to learn.
How crazy is that?!
If I could do similar things for the rest of my life I would feel content at the end.
So whats the problem you may ask?
I believe the problem I have is the problem most people have at their jobs.
I have some amazing coworkers in the medical staff.
Some of these doctors and nurses I would trust with my life any day.
Some of these residents, I would think twice…but with proper supervision, I would sort of trust them too.
Then there is a line of coworkers in my department which are beneath the medical staff.
They have no formal clinical training and most are there to transfer into another department of the hospital.
I call it 13th grade.
Its like an extended high school.
Most people spend their time talking about other people within the department.
Its scary how someone can literally spend 8 hours a day talking about others.
I like my down time because I can use it to talk to the other medical staff, and or read.
I am not the party pooper of my department, I just refuse to part take in these activities where all you do is criticize others within.
I am more than sure they speak negatively about me.
I do not mind it though.
I get paid to do what I do, and contrary to everyone else in the department, I start residency God willing in a couple months.
I just hope that they can see that this job, which pays and has great downtime can be used for studying, reading, and/or anything else that is productive.
You can also learn a ton about clinical medicine in this job.
Its all what you make of it.
Many people wish they had a job, none the less an opportunity like this.
What I am trying to say is that all this immaturity is getting very tiring and annoying.
A good lesson about all of this is learning to work with people all of intentions, and learning to meet them where they are at.
I have to admit, I do get along better with the janitors.
They just seem more empathetic.
On another news….I spoke to the director of janitorial services to do a one month stint prior to residency cleaning the floors.
How cool is that.
From waxing floors, to wearing a white coat.
I think that would make a great book.
