There is nothing more classy and professional than a resident who takes an admission to his/her service with grace and confidence. On the contrary, there is nothing more pathetic than a resident who whines when he gets the admission, and then tries to block it in a futile attempt. Here's to sucking it up, and doing the job right. I would say that despite how you take it, the outcome is nearly always the same (meaning the patient ending up on your service.) So be like the men on the Titanic and take it with pride and do your job.
