The floor nurses and I have a love/hate relationship, for the most part. I often tell them that, if I DON'T make fun of them, it probably means I don't like them or just don't know them very well. I think it keeps them on their toes and it usually keeps me from getting silly phone calls.
Nurse: "Dr. Say, I was just about to call you. Your patient in 415 had an elevated blood pressure, but your partner Dr. Kay ordered some clonidine for her so it's taken care of."
Me: "So....conversation over?"
Nurse (hanging head): *sigh* "Conversation over."
