Sorry this went up so late ... I received word this afternoon that my father was hospitalized with chest pains and spent some time traveling to and from the hospital. He still has a battery of tests to face and meanwhile, his pain continues. As always, your good thoughts and kind prayers for my 78-year-old Pop (and Mom, o'course) are so much appreciated.
SIGNS YOU'VE BEEN EATING OUT OF
HOSPITAL FOOD VENDING MACHINES TOO LONG
Whenever you take a day off, the cafeteria has to raise prices by 50% just to compensate.
At a department potluck, when someone asked you for your recipe, you told them to "Melt an A-7 and drizzle it over a fresh slice of C-9."
You caught yourself sticking patient files in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Your name appears as a separate line item on the hospital's "Income" balance sheet.
You have more diarrhea than 95% of your patients.
You just tried to insert a dollar into the EKG machine.
