i love quotes. i collect them. have been for years. must figure out a way to keep them organized so i don't have to dig thru piles to find that special one. was thinking about posting quotes on this blog and my takes on them. thinking that i'm definitely gonna have to do it now.
got this quote in an email today from my father-in-law. i love it. totally what i needed on such a crummy monday... some people are like slinkies. not really good for anything, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
now i know that this could sound horribly mean and rude. but it cracks me up. helped me laugh and relax after a crazy day at work. today i was thinking about how i need to work on my tolerance and patience. both of which i have none. then i saw the slinky quote and i realized who needs patience? who needs tolerance? seriously, all i have to do is picture the person that is annoying me fall down that flight of stairs.
honestly, i hope people don't really believe what i'm writing. i truly do want to work on my patience and tolerance. but sometimes it is soo frustrating. especially at work. today we are busting our butts and our patients are doing nothing but complaining. i'm sorry it's a crazy day. i'm sorry we are short staffed. i'm sorry we are overbooked. but can't you see that i haven't stopped once. that i'm not intentionally ignoring you. that your doctor has to review your chart and write your chemo orders before i can do anything. sometimes i feel so hopeless, frustrated, overwhelmed. i want to snap when someone makes a rude comment. but i bite my tongue. it doesn't make me any better of a person to retaliate. i think it could make me a weaker person. so today, i resolved to bite my tongue. to just grin and bear it. to realize that if someone can't see that i'm giving it my all there is nothing i can do about it....well, except picture them falling down that flight of stairs! just kidding! ;)
