    Done flipping burgers for today. (and done documenting the flips as well) Heading home to take my kid to baseball while the mechanic types toil away at the hospital a few more hours.

    See ya!

      I always thought of it as more like, “moving sacks of potatoes” in some sort of giant factory. Burgers are too light and easy to flip around. In my mind the sacks weigh perhaps 150 lbs, are 3.5 feet tall, and bulky, floppy, and difficult to maneuver. They come at a very rapid pace down the conveyor, all day, all night. And The Overlords are never pleased when the assembly line breaks down.

      An administrator once confessed that they liked to hire “average” ED docs, rather than really smart, motivated ones because the former were “easier to manage”. Pretty early on I learned never to appear too smart, especially at meetings, in front of administration types. They like to be seen as the smartest people in the room and are usually insecure and easily threatened.

      I agree that specialist and sub-specialist surgeons can scream and swear and break equipment over their knee when they are upset, and administrators will come rushing to restore their emotional well-being, while PCP-types who mutter under their breath to themselves in the parking lot are handled using the iron fist method.

        Me too, but today was such an exciting day! My manager allowed me to work the french fry fryer, it was such a cool experience! He said with a little more experience, hard work, and a bit of luck, I may get to work the drive in window next week. Dare to dream! Off to ride my mountain bike now....

          Yeah I agree with this.

          In other news, today is the first day of the new EHR, we're at half schedule, and it's infuriating.

          Still thinking about quitting.

            LOL

            Unfortunately my experience similar to above. Hospital won't love you back. Unless you make it rain. In which case you can briefly choke nurses and such.
