"You're so SMART! Why didn't you go to medical school?"
This comment doesn't just come from little old people who don't know any better. Residents who are younger than I am have said this crap to me.
Just THINKING about this comment makes my head want to explode. Please, people. Don't EVER say that to a nurse.
I'm a nurse because I want to be a NURSE. If I wanted to be a doctor, I would have been a doctor. By god, if I wanted to be a freaking FIRE TRUCK I WOULD BE A GODDAMN FIRETRUCK!
Ok, sorry, rant over.
