ERP here from Erstories. A little quick post while I am out skiing.
Yes, I admit I get a little juvenile on occasion during a shift. Other staff members do as well and I think this is a good thing. It lighten things up. A little silly laugh because someone said something that conjures Beavis and Butt-head – style snickering helps our blood pressures come down. Of course there is a fine line between jokes and harassment but if everyone laughs when someone says something that is unintentionally of sexual connotation, who would complain?
Some of the things I have heard or had said to me:
“Hey ERP, do you have a measuring tool”?
“Who was that new doctor? He pissed me off by getting all up in me.”
“Holy Moly, it is busy. I have never seen such a patient load.”
“Yes, Doctor Newbie, I can help you get that DVD into the slot.”
“Hey ERP, the new patient in room 5 has priapism, go help him take care of it.”
People need to lighten up in the work place. Sometimes things are just funny!
