  •  When I work holidays some people (13+ / 0-)

    feel sorry me. I say, "Well, why should I have the day off? My little pts don't get the day off from being sick?" Now, when I was in a Union, holiday staffing had to be worked out in a fair manner. So that helped, at least we got half of our holidays with our families.

    But hospital/hospice care is different. NO ONE needs to shop on Thanks giving or early on Friday. We have gone shopping crazy!

    Whatever we forgot for our Thanksgiving dinner, we can "make do" with something else. This old curmudgeon kind of talk, I know. But we would all be better off if we brot back the "make do" attitude of bygone days.
