State-of-the-art medical care...circa 1996

So, my manager stocked our office supplies this morning.  With everything she bought was this: 
None of our computers have floppy drives.  I didn't even know anyone still sold these.  And we have a whole cache of flash drives.  For reals, what the hell?

Of course, this is from the woman who bings google to get to the google search engine.

The best thing ever

I know I haven't posted in a while; it's not like anyone's reading anyway, so who cares?

The best thing ever just happened to me:

My manager's been giving me a hard time about certain phrases I use with our patients. This, in and of itself, is super annoying, since I go out of my way to make certain that our patients are well cared for, and are lacking nothing, and the fact that she bitches about me using phrases like "If you need anything, I'm always here" is a bit more than mildly irritating. Nevertheless, I've made a point out of saying what she wants me to say: "Anyone who answers the phone can help you." Fine. Whatever.

So, today, as I'm checking out a patient, I say to him "If you have any questions, feel free to call our office. Anyone who answers the phone can help." Coincidentally, I happen to be saying this just as we're walking by my manager. His response: "I'd rather just deal with you. I like dealing with you."

In front of my manager.

It was bliss. My toes curled inside my shoes from happiness.
