Casting Aspersions

After a few months of working in this job, my identity badge has become a little battered. The picture of me grinning on induction day is now faded and the lettering isn't as clear as it used to be.

Thing is, instead of saying:

Dr Michael Anderson
Anaesthetics ST1

It now looks like:

Dr Michael Anderson
Anaesthetics STI

which, of course, is a very different thing indeed...

Tee hee hee...

The patients will be doubly glad when you're wearing gloves before touching them.

I've kept mine at SHO. Everyone knows what it is and no mix-ups.

Reminds me of one of my favourite bits of Green Wing, when Alan Statham says "Somebody has used a marker pen to make some alterations. The badge should read Alan Statham, next line Consultant Radiologist, and on the word consultant, they've blacked out the letters O, N, S and L, T, A"

Aah, Green Wing...

STI to the point of needing Anaesthetics! Phew, this New City you're in must be 'wild!'

'Did I ever tell you how I shot a wild elephant in my pyjamas?'

Quote by Groucho Marx (American singer and comedian ... most probably another STI ;)

Judging by the gas party I worked on at our place, there are a fair number of vectors amongst the theatre staff... :E
