So, we have taboo words, this is no surprise.
We all know about the S word, the D word, the GD biggie, the F-bomb word, closely related to the MF word.....
There are some words we just don't say "in mixed company"
At work there is the Q word.
Come on you nurses, you know what the Q word is don't you??!! Do you EVER say it out loud?? Do you DARE to think it????
Working in an environment where the flit can hit the shan at any moment you learn to appreciate those moments when it's quietly lying in the bedpan......but you never "jinx" these moments by saying "it's nice and Q..... tonight" DO YOU???
Because once you say it...you know what's gonna happen next. Yup, stinky stuff flying everywhere!
My big-boss (Cheif Nursing Officer aka Director of Nursing) walked by me one day a couple of weeks ago. Asked how things were going if we were having a nice day. To which we answered, yes, it's been a good work day today thanks.
She replied "Good, we like it when the day is Pleasantly Paced."
I thought to meself....oooo, she's good.
