Whatever happend to compassion????
Have you ever had to deal with a mean teacher, or maybe a really gruff nurse? These are two occupations that come to my mind when I think about professions that require some gentleness, kindness, patience, and compassion. With my son having severe asthma I have dealt with a lot of nurses and doctors, and every time we get a nurse that acts like she is doing us some big favor or that she has better things to do than taking care of her patients, I think to myself " why in the world did they ever become a nurse! As a nurse your job is to help people who need it. If you don't like people then PLEASE don't work in a profession that requires you to be around them and have to interact with them. It is so frustrating to watch and sometimes it takes everything I have to hold my tongue, when a nurse acts like it is so much work to get up off her chair at the nurses station and see to my sons needs. Now I realize that not all nurses are like this. We have had quite a few that we really liked and have gotten to know. All I am saying is that if you do not like people or taking care of them, then please find something else to do with your life.
