i try really hard not to tell my patients what my name is. my id badge is totally visible so if they want my name that bad they can read it. but lord help the person who volunteers their name. it's bad enough hearing people shout "NURSE!" but it's awful when they shout for their nurse by their fist name. i cringe when i realize someone learned my name. it's bad enough to hear all the nurses call my name.
the key to happiness is to stop giving a fuck.
