Read up, yo.

Ok kids, here's the dealio.

My girl Epi_Junky over at Pink Warm & Dry is having a super shitty week and a few people want to help her out. For those unaware, Ms. Epi Nephrine is one rockin EMT-B (that's EMT-Badass for the uninitiated) with ALS aspirations who needs to get herself through EMT-Paramagic school. Since she's having this cruddy week, which includes a roadblock to medic school and because we all loves us some Epi_Junky, a donation jar in the form of a PayPal button has been established over at I Just Call It As I See It.

Much thanks to TJ over at Surviving RT School for alerting me to this and for BTheEMT for putting this together. Now go click, consider it as paying off some karmic debt.

I admit it. I snorted

So I've only recently discovered Weird Nursing Tales and so this morning after getting back from a call I was going through the archives and came across this little bit, which sounds an awful lot like something I would say.

Nurse: Dr. G, I saved a life today!

Dr. G: We save lives everyday.

Nurse: No, I mean me, personally, saved a life.

Dr. G: Which patient?

Nurse: The 18 year old who thought he was bleeding internally.

Dr. G: He has hemorrhoids.

Nurse: Yeah. I wanted to choke the life out of him, but I didn't.

Carry on.
