Saturday afternoon was pleasant...to the extent that at one stage there were no patients to be seen and we were all sitting around the nursing station,having a cup of tea.
So is it true,-asked SimplySomerset,the new Health Care Support Worker-,that you cannot give blood to a Jehovah's Witness?
Oh! That's strange...
"Well...its what they believe...of course,in life threatening emergencies with children, hospitals usually get a court order to give the blood..."
Oh...do you know anybody who is a Jehovah's Witness?
"Ja...in fact my hairdresser is a 'Witness' ...do you know that they also do not celebrate birthdays...?"
She looked bemused.
Do you mean that they don't get older then...?
"Well...of course they get older..."
The S&M Queen snorted her tea.
UglyJulie had to walk away.
But then...how do they know how old they are...?
"Well...the same way we all do...subtract your birth year from the current year..."
"Perhaps you could go and clean something now?"
So now my colleagues are a rich source of craziness!!
