Crazies at work

I work in a hospital. I don't really like my job much at all. But it has decent pay and benefits and right now I'm lucky to have that. It's not somewhere I will work forever, but for now it's fine. I am an administrative assistant. I schedule appointments, do chart prep, make lab orders, fax things, help room patients, etc.

Now on to the good stuff...

I have some good stories since I work with the general public on a daily basis. Yesterday was a day that totally took the cake as far as weirdness goes! I go into this ladies exam room, to schedule her for some weekly appointments. The first thing she asks me is, "What is your sign?" I thought that was kinda weird, but a lot of people are into that kind of thing so I told her I am a Taurus. And she said, "Good, because if you were a Leo I wouldn't let you work with me." Funny thing is? She was dead serious. Next, I go to schedule her appointment for the week of September 15th. She tells me that she has to skip that whole week because she knows she is going to die that week. She doesn't know what year, but it will be the week of September 15th. Alrighty then... She also says she has a curse on her that made her blind. She thinks it's one of my co-workers that put the curse on her because she claims she went blind after her first visit with us last summer.

Needless to say, I scheduled her appointments as fast as I could and got out of there! I didn't even know what to say to her! What do you tell a crazy person like that?! Haha!

It's Tom's 28th birthday tomorrow! I am taking him out to Red Lobster for their all-you-can-eat shrimp. Yum! I loooove their cheesy biscuits! :)

For now I am going to go snuggle with my puppy and watch True Blood. Gotta Love Netflix!

Hilarious. It can be interesting working with people. I work with alot of elderly and they say the most random things! But like you said no one can give up decent pay and benefits these days! Have fun @ dinner =D
