It's not my intention to excuse said carelessness, simply to suggest a reason.


When I worked at Domino's Pizza, we once made 150 pizzas in one hour. Not one of them was returned or complained about. Why? We gave a sh*t about our work. Is your reason valid? To a degree; even if you're tired and bored, you should have pride in your work, especially if your work involves people's health and sick people's comfort.



Seriously, Tsu? You have to find a better example than that. Out of 150 pizza customers, there's only a fraction who are going to get a substandard pizza. How many of those people are actually going to call and complain about that substandard pizza, given the fact that even a perfectly executed Domino's pie bears almost no resemblance to a good pizza anyway?

Anyway, I find the opposite of Kendall - constant injections have desensitized me to needles in the extreme. I'm bothered more by the fingertip blood testing than I am by the injections in the gut. Little hint for people with chronic vein problems or who constantly have issues getting an IV in - ask for an anesthesiologist to do it.

Oooh. Low blow, dude. I think the new Domino's recipe is pretty damn good. But what do I know about pizza anyways? I emigrated from the LBC to Houston, Texas. :wink:

Anyways, I used that example because it was a job I liked, but didn't really take seriously. If medical professionals can't take their jobs seriously, they aren't professionals, IMO.

Or a phlebotomist. If such a specialist is available to you, anyways.

I've found that they're actually worse than most RN's.

Weird. I mean, drawing blood is their entire job.

It is weird. I attribute it to one of two things:

a) All phlebotomists do, all day every day, is draw blood. Boredom, fatigue, ennui, death-wishes, etc., have got to creep in at some point.

b) Most RN's I know - while they can make some serious scrilla - got into the profession for a true desire to help people, rather than a true desire to make a paycheck.
