Are you ready???
Do I have your attention??
MY BACK HURTS QUIT!
Yes you heard my correctly. My back hurts has officially turned in her resignation. I promise you I never saw this one coming. She has been doing her job now for at least fifteen years I think? I've been there seven years now and I know she'd been there for quite some time before I got there.
I'm in shock big time. Where is she going you ask? Back to regular clinic nursing. A completely different type of medical problem, no longer doing Pink October stuff. Again, I'm shocked. She has lived her life for the pink for years. Has tons of certifications and letters after her RN. To go someplace completely new and foreign to her where she will actually be expected to do work is incomprehensible to me.
The killer is? She got that special desk, special mat to stand on, two weeks in Hawaii and the clincher? She is still only doing part time as her back hurts. How is she now going to go to rooming patients, doing vital signs being up and moving when she can't even stand at her desk and do work now? Right now she comes and goes as she pleases. Does work or doesn't do work as she pleases. She will now be expected to actually do something at this new job.
It's also a demotion as she had the navigator title and now is just a clinic nurse. So yeah big pay cut city as well. I feel sorry for the new girl as she just started and my back hurts is hardly there to train her and now she's quitting to leave the new girl to fend for herself. Nice right? They have not decided on a last day yet. She is in negotiations with the boss.
My thoughts are that she will regret leaving. That she will realize once she leaves that she had it pretty good in her comings and goings. We are pretty much left to ourselves to do our job. The boss is not hovering making sure our sh*t gets done. She is leaving that behind.
Oh and the people she's going to work with?? I know for a fact aren't very nice. So a little more icing on the cake for me.
But then I realized something. I myself have said if they ban nail polish I may quit and do something else myself. Why wouldn't I regret the anonymity that I have now just like I said my back hurts will? I'm betting I would big time. I like to do my job as I have created it. I made it what it is and what I've created is pretty damn awesome compared to what the person before me did.
Would I have the same regrets as I believe my back hurts will?? Maybe...........
Now today we have part of the new Enchanted Polish collection. Five stunning new colors to die for. When I first saw this one, Wicked, my first thought was hmmmm Holiday 2014 and December 2015. But when you swatch them side by side, they are all very different indeed.
Here is Wicked.
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
