A Day to Celebrate

Today is a good day. The chief of nursing at my hospital no longer works there. Now before you all think I'm cruel and mean - this is a woman that verbally threatened to write me up when I called in sick ONE time.

I'm not sure if I blogged about it when it happened...but I was like the 5th person to call in sick that day so they were shorthanded. She got on the phone with me, talked down to me, told me if I didn't show up - consider myself to be written up. I remember asking her if she was also writing up every other person that called in sick for the year and she snidely remarked "I'll review it on a case by case basis." I knew she could not write me up as I hadn't called in sick in over a year - but listening to her repeatedly threaten me truly aggravated me.

The call basically ended with her saying once more "If you don't show up, consider yourself written up." I replied "I will not be there tonight." Of course I was a little scared the next time I went back to work. I kept expecting to be called in for a meeting regarding the threat...but nothing ever happened. Of course if she had written me up, I would not have taken it lightly because she had no reason to write me up, much less threaten me.

I feel like she always held that against me. We never said anything more than "hello" if we happened to be in the same room. Most of the time we just ignored one another. Probably not the smoothest move for me considering she was so high in administration, but her job title didn't mean squat to me after the way she behaved on the phone that day. It was truly immature and uncalled for.

Sooooooo....there was some kind of falling out in administration and she is history. Karma.........
