Friday Funnies

January 19th, 2018

Today fell apart from the get go! 1) First change at 7am when I swapped patient F for patient N. with another therapist 2) Second change my 10am patient D was taken to ER so I had an unexpected opening. 3) My 9am patient J didn’t show so I called her and she was still in bed and didn’t want to come at 10am. Another unexpected cancellation. 4) My original patient F was given back to me to fill in my 10am time slot, but at 10am he was headed to Rosary and I had to fit him in later. 5) The afternoon changed too with my 12:30 patient canceling for some reason, so I called my 2:30 patient D to come at 12:30. He could not but could come at 1:30. 6) Sixth change I contacted my 1:30pm patient I and asked if she would come at 12:30. Great. 7) 12:30 arrived and NO patient. I called patient I and she’d forgotten our conversation 2 hours prior! But she came down. 8) Final straw of the day was when my boss asked me on the way out if I could maybe change my airline ticket to leave 3 weeks later because they have too many people on vacation when I was going to Florida (to prepare for my move) and need me for coverage. WOW

All I can do is laugh! In fact this chaotic day inspired a few jokes, here is my list of ones I came up with : DISCLAIMER:  Some of these are far better than others. Don’t judge me.

I had a patient who was a dairy farmer… so I gave him a calf stretch.

I had a patient who was an engineer…. so I gave him bridges.

I had a patient who likes seafood… so I gave him clamshells.

I had a patient who said he likes spiders, so I gave him the powerweb.

I had a patient who said he likes horror films… so I gave him monster walks.

I had a patient who was a K9 officer…. so I gave him the downward dog stretch.

I had a patient who told me he was a pirate… so I gave him planks.

I had a patient who said one of the other therapists took her breath away… so I gave her diaphragmatic breathing exercises.

I had a patient who said he worked at the morgue…. so I gave him deadlifts.

I had a patient who said he was a window washer… so I gave him power cleans.

I had a patient who said he worked at a restaurant… so I gave him waiter’s tips.

I had a patient who was a clock maker… so I gave him pendulums.

I had a patient who said the front desk put him on hold… so I gave him isometrics.

I had a patient who said he was an orthodontist, so I gave him abdominal bracing.

Be kind to your therapist this week and keep laughing.

    So, is your boss/job paying for your new ticket? Cause I’d take that delay if they are paying for your trip. Cancel your original ticket and use the funds at a later date.

I just cancelled my ticket to Maine, was impulsively purchased in November and now I’ve got no PTO and too many unexcused absences from being sick 3 times already since then.

    Yes Friday was a crazy day!!! For someone who doesn’t really get jokes, I actually laughed at some of these 😉 But wow, I can’t believe your boss asked you that. Like what Pamela said, if they want you to change your flight than they should cover for that. But still come on…. you’re taking the flight so you can move; they should understand that 😋 See you Monday and have a great R E L A X I N G weekend 😃
