    No, not the top and bottom at the same time.

    And usually not the bottoms, just sometimes I don't care what I wear and wear a scrub top.

    '
    And it's not to troll, I'm serious. But like I said, not the whole thing, just sometimes I wear the top, but rarely the bottom.

    And yeah, my myspace shows my passion for surgery.

    That doesn't help me to defend you.

    Wearing scrub tops or bottoms or both, in public, away from the hospital, not on your way home from work, especially when you are not a health care worker is just lame, IMHO.

    Really, do your classmates pick on you? If not, get used to it during medical school if you continue to wear scrubs around.

    Haven't you read all our threads about not wearing scrubs in public and ESPECIALLY not wearing the tops with "street clothes"?:confused:

    So you wouldn't look at at attractive member of your preferred sex who was wearing some suggestive clothing?:confused:

    Just get over it already, you're in high school, you have no idea what professionalism is.
    And, by the way, how you not gonna look if someone worth looking at is wearing something worth looking at?

    Hmmm... I met two of the male vascular attendings there. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it was RA?

    It's not unprofessional to find the opposite sex attractive and looking. It's biology!

    Boy, you're really going to hate surgery.

    To pass the time, the surgeons often gossip, exchange stories about past girlfriends/boyfriends, talk about bodily functions (pooping, peeing, farting), and talk about which supermodel is more attractive. (The PRS guys will sometimes gossip on which celebrities have had some "work" done, and which celebrities SHOULD have some work done...) If conversation is lagging, then somebody will probably start singing along to the iPod.

    So I guess if that makes surgeons unprofessional, you're not going to have a good time in the OR.

    What gave it away - the "stiff white shirt"?! I love RA; one of my favorite attendings.

    Now guess which one I told to F-Off two weeks before my residency was over (amd was congratulated by the PD for doing so)?

    Seriously...surgeons can be VERY "unprofessional", especially in the OR. Lots of gossip, lots of sex talk, bodily function talk and more sex talk with dirty jokes.

    Lotsa fun.:D

    Totally agree. :thumbup: That's the best part of the day! :D
     
  16. ...and that's why you need to go into G Surg!

    (Oh. Uh...unless you're implying that going into Gyn Onc via OB/GYN also makes you a surgeon. ;) )

    Methinks his notion of how physicians interact comes from the movie "Spies Like Us" with Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd.

    "Hello Doctor."

    "Good morning Doctor."

    "Doctor, yes, doctor."

    "Evening Doctor."

    "Doctor, is that what I think it is, Doctor?"

    "Yes, Doctor! Straight away, Doctor!

    "Doctor, the patient's blood pressure is dropping. What shall I do Doctor?"

    "Doctor you should push some saline or start a pressor or some $hit."

    RA plays the stiff WASP thing really well. It's great. He seems like a hoot to hang with in the OR... Either that or he's really boring.

    Did you flip DH the bird? Really? I only met him for all of 30 minutes, but I did get the impression that he could be extremely annoying and whiny.

    He has a very dry sense of humor, although in the OR he's quite serious. He was the ONLY attending in my years there that actually made it a point to sit down with his residents and talk to them about their performance. When I was an intern, it was nice because even though he had some negative things to say, there were also positive things. When I returned to service as a 2nd year, he commented that I had improved a great deal on the things he had cited as weaknesses during my intern year. He did the same for me as Chief and I really appreciated it. Many people are frightened of him and find him stiff, but I thought he was very fair, and as I noted above, has a great sense of humor.

    Oh no, I SAID it to him. Kept riding me about something, I was exhausted (the fellow was on vacation so I was on q1 vascular call) and I just lost it. His nickname rhymes with condescending (you'll get it since you know his name). Bright guy, but very annoying and patronizing.

    I guess it takes some getting used to. I've noticed a lot of vascular people are abnormally cold and stiff, and that sometimes you just can't tell how they read you. It's a bit unsettling. When I was talking with him he gave me these stern stare downs, almost as if he was trying to pick apart the bull$hit. Most other people I met along the trail would respond with things like, "Oh interesting..." At least to give you an idea that you weren't totally boring the crap out of them or that they were paying attention.

    That's awesome! One of my old Chiefs got into a big ole fight with LT, and when the "Associate PD" stepped in to try and defend her (he always liked her for some reason... Idiot.), my Chief turned to the Associate PD and said, "Go F**k yourself!"

    I think I'd pee all over myself if I did something like that.

    Yes, "unsettling" that would be an experience many have had with him. Did you interview there for the fellowship? I'd imagine if you interviewed with him its a different situation than I was in. Of course I could also get away with a little flirting, putting a "c" in front of his last name, for a cute nickname.:D

    Well, of course, after I did (storming out of conference...yes, I did it in front of one of the other vascular attendings, the fellows and the interns), I instantly regretted it. I ran to the PC's office, who hates him, she laughed out loud and paged the PD who came over and gave me a high five. Made me feel better, but its SOOOO out of character for me to do that, I was embarassed that I had lost control like that.

    Then...beep beep beep, a page to you know who's office. It wasn't bad really, he was sort of contrite and wanted to know what he did wrong. I thought it was a bit disingenuous and fake, but whatever...I only had a couple of weeks left. I was more afraid of Dr. A and what he would say, but never heard about it from him.

    Yes, I interviewed with him for the fellowship and the other one as well. Like I said I found him cold and those stares from him kinda feel as if he's trying to suck my soul out. :) A little melodramatic, I know, but I was really weirded out by it. It was almost Vulcan-like.

    Guys, THIS is WHY having a woman in your program sucks. :)

    I'm sure he wanted to rip your tongue out. He seems the type who would be political about everything, but I may just be overthinking it.

    Good stuff.

    Ooh. That stings a little. :(

    ;)

    I never threatened to kick your butt! I may have contemplated poking you in the shins a few times ;), but I doubt that I could take you.

    I know. Cheisu will be disappointed with his first OR conversation.

    PRS attending: I was watching TV last night. Natasha Bedingfield either needs to get some lipo on her greater trochanter regions, or else she needs to stop wearing jodhpurs. I mean, come on. When men say that they like big butts, they're just trying to be nice.

    Me: What about J-Lo?

    PRS attending: J-Lo has a good stylist. She wears stuff that makes her behind look good - in other words NOT JODHPURS. Although I'd lipo her too. Lipo would not be a bad idea.

    Male scrub tech: I'm more partial to Tyra Banks myself.

    Etc, etc.

    Unprofessional? Maybe. But a heck of a lot of fun!
     
  26. Probably not because in my mind, you're 5'1", 103 pounds, and wear size 6 Biogels. :)

    "Her panties. Uh, odds are they are probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about."

    Gotta love Old School for good quotes...

    Close. I'm 5'1", 103 lbs., but I wear size 60 biogels. Basically, I look like a homunculus. I'm in high demand for my retracting capabilities - I don't even need a Deaver!

    ;)

    Oh, and Castro, I don't wear underwear. Have you ever seen a homunculus wear pants? Please.

    I know a lot of male nurses who do that, especially in the ER. Scrub top and cargo pants, usually with a pair of trauma shears hanging from the belt.

    Yeah... My giblets should be nowhere near your giblets.
     
  44. Dude, you need to get out more. That, or your long-distance relationship is killing you! :)

    But you're right, my giblets stay put, in that little linen sack that comes with the turkey. And I only pair my turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy! That's it!

    Well, OK, sometimes I could use some sweet potato pie.
