Without wanting to get into detail, guarding what little personal information I can, I've had to have nurses drop by the apartment to assist with health care. It's not a huge deal, I'm not actually sick. Anyways, two different nurses have come into my home, touched me, documented the care and future needs - and neither one has introduced themselves. I have no idea who they are. I haven't asked them, making a little game out of these appointments. How many nurses will come before someone practices a little bit of courtesy?
I don't want to become friends with these nurses.
I don't want to have a beer with them.
But I would like to address them by name.
Actually, I thought today was going to be different, when the phone rang I answered to hear an unfamiliar voice. He said, 'I am ...' and there was a pause before he finished the sentence '... the nurse.' That's as close as I've gotten to an introduction.
You know what's weird about all this? It was Joe who noticed the fact that we've never been introduced to the nurses who are coming into my home, coming into my bedroom, touching me a little bit ... and leaving. I know this sounds WAY different than it actually is ... but what the hell ...
So tomorrow at 5 they'll be back. I'll be waiting.
Anyone want to take odds that it will be three for three.
