Alternative title: Why you shouldn't tell me these stories if you don't want them known...
The following is a story one of the nurses told me (about herself).
Nurse: "I was getting in my car the other day and when I sat down, I heard a distinct beeping. Not knowing what it was, I didn't want to move, so I waited and it beeped again. Now I was really freaked out. I looked out the window to see if anyone was around. No one in sight. Still scared, I pressed my OnStar button and waited for the operator."
Rep: "OnStar, how can I help you?"
Nurse: "I...I think I may be sitting on a bomb."
Rep: "Oh, um. Why do you think that?"
Nurse: "Listen." *Beeping occurs again*
Rep: "Wow, that sounds serious. I think you need to call the police."
Nurse: "Ok, I'll do that."
She was just about to call 911 when a knock on her window startled her. She rolled it down to see another nurse.
2nd Nurse: "What are you doing just sitting out here?"
Nurse: "I think there may be a bomb in my car."
At this point, the second nurse opened her door and reached into the first nurse's pocket, pulling out the telemetry pager she'd forgotten when she left the floor and pushing the button to reset it. She'll probably never tell me a story again.
