    Drawings are incredible. Do you ever mess up on your drawings at all? I wish I had the talent to do it.

  2. And how many times that happened when the system was a new one...?

  3. I like how the pillow even looks grumpy.

  5. Hopefully in a good way!

    I feel the same way, actually. I haven't looked at these comics in a while (and it's been a year and a half since I had to deal with resident scut), but re-reading the comics kind of makes me grind my teeth. With fond nostalgia, of course.

  6. It's scary how much that annoyed resident resembles me right now...

    So funny! How about the reverse:

    Hi, this is RN [first name], we've been paging you for 20 minutes, the code team has been trying to resus your patient for 15 minutes, sorry, were you sleeping?"

  8. It's so funny how things that really make you mad at the time make such funny humor in retrospect.

    Your commenter who pointed out that the pillow looked angry is right. It does!

  9. I laughed/got annoyed in a good way! I've never had that exact scenario happen, but many very similar. "This page has no patient name or callback number, but is asking for more ativan. Um..."
