Worst idea for a business meeting ever~!

Mmmmm, dinner meeting at my favorite restaurant...shrimp ettoufee...bread pudding with white raspberry sauce...Of course, this was a nurse's meeting about immunizations and HEAD LICE. I love a free dinner, but really, I did *not* need to see a powerpoint with pictures of LICE the size of my head while eating dinner. Good thing it's hard to gross out a nurse!

Eww!! Just the mention of the word makes me itch! We had a bout with it in our house a couple of years ago! It's a nightmare with 2 girls with long thick hair. If I had boys I would have shaved their heads!!

You are strong!

I need to get over that, I really do. Bugs and/or parasites about put me over. Blood and other bodily fluids don't. At least not yet!

Yeah. We knew it was going to be about immunizations, but they slipped that bit about head lice right under the door. Captive audience, and all that.

Lol... My sister is an RN and my brother is a Medic for the fire dept. Instead of having a kids table for family meals we have stooped to having a medical table, cuz when those two get together, no one else can eat, lol!

My last drug rep dinner was about head lice. No biggy. The most interesting dinner, genital warts. Pics included, all while eating!!!!

It amazing the conversations that can happen at the dinner table when people in the medical field get together!

My husband hates when we go out with my co-workers because invariably the conversation turns to the most disgusting things he can imagine.

I think he tries not to think about what I actually do for a living.

They always say nurses have strong stomachs. I agree on medical table at holiday gatherings. WE have an STNA, A nurse, and a Doctor in our group
