Enquiring Minds Want to Know (9)

Each week Dollycas's Thoughts hosts the meme "Enquiring Minds Want to Know." She posts questions for us to answer each week in order for us bloggers and readers to get to know each other beyond our books.  Check out her's and others answers here.

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Biggest pet peeve.... you mean I have to choose?  I'll narrow it down to two.  First, and probably my biggest, pet peeve is general laziness.
The caption under this picture was, "not my job."
But, because I work in the health care profession, simply saying "not my job" generally means that someone else will have to do it.  Perhaps it is only a glass of water or answering the phone, but sometimes that phone call is to say that someone is having a fatal rhythm.  It just bugs me when I work in the serving profession and no one is serving anyone but themselves. 

The other pet peeve I have is unreadable handwriting.  I know that doctor's handwriting is a common joke among lay people, but try being that nurse that tries to read that handwriting.  Can't wait until we go to computer documentation.  :)

2. Do you shop online?
I do tend to shop online for some different things.  It mostly just depends on my mood.  The only exception to that is Christmas.  I love wrapping presents, so if I buy it online, I have it shipped to me so I can wrap it.  :)

3. Have you ever traveled by train?
Unfortunately, no.  It is a big dream of mine though.  I've looked into a train that goes across Canada, and I think that would be a lovely vacation.


  1. I love the pic for It's not my job. I use to be a nurse too, and the joke wa that the first class a doctor has to take and pass is Illegible Handwriting 101.

  2. Oh, I hate laziness too!!!

    I have to say, and this in no way relates to the questions after spending 75 days in the hospital almost 10 years ago I have a whole new respect nurses. My daughter works in heath care because of what she saw with me! Nurses rock, and it takes a very special type of person to be a nurse, and I am thankful for every one of you.

  3. Ooh, I've travelled by train from Alberta to Vancouver and I definitely recommend it! It goes right through the Rocky Mountains, absolutely gorgeous. And we saw a few moose and bears, too!
