MichiganGirl24:  That’s terrible with what you went through with your pharmacy! I can’t really speak for them, but I always try to get prescriptions done and checked well before the pickup time. Sometimes it can get backed up, unfortunately the pharmacist has to check the prescription before it can go out. I get often get caught up with a problem or I’m on the phone with a patient, insurance, or another pharmacy and the workflow gets clogged up. 

If the medication is something we commonly dispense, the computer sets an order point that automatically orders it for us. We call the patient almost right away if we discover we don’t have it in stock. But then, we can get the medication in the next day except for weekends. 

Lol, that is actually another complaint from me, other pharmacies that make pharmacies in general and the profession look bad. I often bust my butt off working hard. I lost 10 pounds in the first 3 months when I started working because I’m running around everywhere and had no time to take lunch breaks or go to the bathroom.

We attend ships and they come in around the clock. Got one coming it at 1am? Too bad, you’ll be on it! Despite having worked a normal office day before and after (unless it’s a weekend, yep we have to work them too if there’s a ship in).

The workload.  It’s extremely heavy and I am always behind.

MichiganGirl24:  I’m a flight attendant and I LOVE it. but some hard things are wondering if I’m going to get the days off I request for the next month. The pay is terrible and half of my day ( literally half or more) is complete unpaid work such as boarding passengers and cleaning the plane.

My boss doesn’t allow anyone in the office to talk.  No hellos, good nights, nothing.  There’s no small talk.  Luckily, I’m able to leave the office a fair amount.  However, if I were stuck there all day, I’d rip my hair out.  I feel bad for the secretaries who are stuck there without leaving all week.    I don’t know a single thing about anyone’s personal life in the office.  I only know some people have kids because there are pictures on the wall!

lolot:  You’re cool.

KatiePi:  lealorali:  MichiganGirl24:  I think the worst part of teaching is dealing with the public perception of teachers.  Why are we held to higher standards of behavior, but lower standards of everything else?  Like, if I got drunk and did something stupid, everyone would be like, and OH MY GOD, she’s a TEACHER, what a scandal.  If I want to be adequately paid for my time, though, it’s OH MY GOD, she’s just a TEACHER, anyone can do that job.  

I also wish teacher education programs were more rigorous, and also more culturally responsive. The worst part of my job is hearing teachers’ prejudiced thoughts about children.

I’m an RN in a combination outpatient and acute specialty unit. I love my job, but there’s lots of things that I would change if I could. The worst is probably working constantly short-staffed and still being blamed by administration for “low productivity” because they’ve gone through and slashed the number of nursing hours per pt we are allowed, regardless of patient acuity. And they refuse to adjust our outpatient schedule so that we can survive with less nursing staff for the same number of patients. Somehow this is all the nursing staff’s fault. Second hardest is probably dealing with the fact that I’m quite young compared to most others in my specialty. I may have my BSN and two and a half years of experience, serve as an officer in my specialty nurses association, and work every shift/job in my unit (including charge), but that doesn’t stop the occasional disrespect from doctors and other healthcare providers. Kind of sick of being accused of a CNA, LPN, or tech. I may be 23 but I’m good, goshdarnit! Still, love this job, love my patients, and adore my co-workers. Couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

MichiganGirl24:  Prepping a risk management report after reading 5 boxes of files regarding bad stuff happening to a child.  

On the brighter side, it makes terminating people fromt heir jobs a bright spot in my day!
