just venting

Today wasn't my most favorite day in the world...it started out kinda crappy waiting w/ Isaiah at the bus stop...for those who don't know, my middle child (who is autistic) has been the brunt of bullying by the neighborhood children. I wait w/ him at the bus stop to make sure they aren't evil to him. The little boy across the street is still nice to Isaiah, but the rest of them are mean little spawns of satan...so this morning the little boy from across the street starts coming over by Isaiah and one of the kids tells him DONT GO BY ISAIAH HE"S MEAN...I wanted to strangle the kid, but I resisted the urge. WTF, my son is standing there minding his own business but yeah HES mean @@@@@@@@@@@@@@...so needless to say I was all upset, and couldn't go back to sleep after he got on the bus. Which I NEEDED to get some sleep cuz I worked tonight...

Which leads me in to work....

I was having a PRETTY good night (for those who don't really know me, I am a CNA at a hospital, I float around to different floors), Tonight, I was on the med/surg floor which is a hard floor, but tonight wasn't bad, I only had 9 patients which isn't horrible, there were 3 CNA's plus a light duty aide (she hurt herself) who was suppossed to help out by doing our vitals, water, garbages, and other light duty tasks...plus there were student nurses there, who were helping take care of one of my really hard patients, so all in all the night was going smoothly...

UNTIL (ok obviously I wasn't going to brag about what an easy night I had right??? lol)...

little Miss Light Duty, comes over to me and this other girl and tells us she's not pulling our garbages and that our rooms aren't stocked and their a mess...now this girl has the same job title that we do, and has NO business to be telling ANY of us what to do, so that kind of irked me...but I let it slide, I went and pulled my garbages, since she said she wasn't going to...I did rounds on my rooms, everything was fine, great no big deal. So about a 1/2 hour later she comes BACK over to me and this other CNA and tells us AGAIN that we need to do our rooms. We're like THEY"VE BEEN DONE...she's like, well they are a mess...and starts going off...now, I don't do drama, and if you yell at me, I won't yell back, I will laugh at you...it's just my nature...and no matter how hard you try you CAN"T get me riled up enough to yell at you, I just don't do it...I guess this was frustrating her, I could tell how bad she was trying to get a rise out of me...I simply said...look I did my job to my satisfaction, if it's not up to your standards than by all means, you go do it...OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH she was MAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDD...she's like FINE I'LL LET YOUR SUPERVISOR KNOW THAT...I said please do, and started laughing......so on my last rounds I made sure I took out my handy dandy camera phone and took pictures of all my rooms, including my EMPTY garbage cans, and my fully stocked linens...to PROVE that my work, HAD in fact been done, and she was just on some ego trip and was angry she couldn't get a rise out of me...she's lucky I don't turn her in for code of conduct, because they don't allow that kind of drama at my place of employment!!!

Now even though you can't get a rise out of me on the outside, I am a very sensitive person on the inside...so of course I'm pretty upset about it...I'm not one of them people who can just blow it off on the inside...so I guess I'll be up all night long.

:::::::::sigh::::::::::: Hopefully this little vent will help!

i'm sorry you had such a horrible day! some people just live for drama...

and on the bullying front, i'm really really sorry- i've heard little remarks just a few times where brian is so young but they sting everytime- i always joke i'm gonna get arrested for smacking some snide little six year old for picking on brian ;)
