I feel bad for a lot of teachers, between bratty kids and bratty parents.

Though there are always bratty teachers as well.

IMO thought I’d share about a woman who came into the clinic today with her new puppy, give everyone here a chuckle as well.

This sweet, but clearly stressed out (or maybe nervous) lady came in today with her flipping adorable 11 week old puppy. He is clearly her first pet ever and has obviously doing a LOT of internet reading. For starters she dragged this poor dog into the clinic in his very large dog kennel, the poor thing was clearly terrified. So as soon as she got in she let him out of the kennel and do whatever he felt like doing. Naturally my co-workers and I have him love as she frantically rummaged through her purse muttering to herself then announced “I’m going home I will be right back!” My co-workers and I just kinda looked at her like “whaaaaaaat?” Then she says “I don’t know where his papers are I’m going home! I will see you in awhile!” She goes to leave, remember her kennel and puppy are in our clinic still. She goes to get in her car as my co-worker runs out to explain that she can’t just leave the kennel and her dog at the clinic like that. We told her we’d be happy to watch him if she needed to go but she’d have to sign paperwork giving us permission to do so (mainly protects us if people abandon animals). Long story short she ends up taking the dog with her to go home and come back.

She comes back and goes into the appointment. The doctor talks to her about flea and tick prevention to which she very loudly exclaims “DOGS CAN HAVE TICKS TOO!?! At my son’s school there’s a girl that goes like this” (this is when she starts to twitch her head and arms). The doctor, being a cool dude, says “I think your thinking of ticks brought on from Tourette’s syndrome, and from what I understand it’s an involuntary action for suffers of that particular disease. I’m talking of an insect parasite that feeds from animal and human blood and can carry Lyme disease.” “Okay but can my dog get what that little girl has?” “No. That’s a human thing” the doctor said with a straight A’s a whip face...

I kinda love my job when people who are over the top and just want to do right by their pets but obviously have no idea. They’re just adorable. And they make for a good laugh and story to share. In the end after several of my co-workers and I spent a solid two hours going over EVERYTHING, I think she went home with a new appreciation for the veterinary field and pet ownership. She’s totally someone who knows she’s making a fool of herself and she makes fun of herself for it and I love and respect that so much.

@Ology I'm with Silver, I believe she's using you. If she doesn't want to pay you have services rendered, let her go find someone else to watch the child. When she asks you to babysit, tell her you have plans. The more you do it for free, the less likely she is to ever pay you again. Explain to her that your time is valuable and unless you are compensated for it, you cannot and will not babysit. You're not doing yourself any favors being her free babysitter.

Apparently they worry about me to sense I care for a realistic doll in role play only. I jokingly call my baby Zoey my nieces cousin in play and there mom just about lost it.
My sister never played with toy like baby doll and stuff animal. I was barbie and her barbies never went to a ball or anything. They just did normal things. Her imagination lack a lot while mind can play out a scene easy.

I am so trying to teach my nieces the joy of play instead of being on a tablet or phone all day.

Don't you just hate when you're trying to piece something together and realize that timelines are off or the information you've gathered is incorrect?

I am SO relieved that we have a long weekend this weekend. I’ve had such a loooong and exhausting week at work. We’re down one of two doctors and so many surgeries. Assisted in six yesterday morning alone. :sleepy:

Now, it’s time to relax and then send out all my recipe cards tomorrow morning.

My random thought of today is: life sure is interesting.
I often go back as far as I can remember and think about how the butterfly effect changes everything.... wow now my head really hurts
