What do you do?

Over here you have to have a degree to do that kind of stuff :/

 

 

Yeah I saw that when I looked it up but your right I did think it was a jumper (sweater) but I think our male nurses wear something similar (well they used to I think they all wear scrubs these days) ;)

Here you can get a degree to do it and get paid more, depending on the area you live in, but you can also learn to do it without one.  I worked in Alabama and learned to do cat spay and neuters and a couple other things by myself actually.  That surprised me a lot, but not so much once I learned to do it.  It wasn't very difficult at all.  I also learned to do the workups on animals that they left there for shots and a checkup, there was a routine to follow and it was really pretty simple and if I had any questions there was always a vet there.  The vets took care of the more complicated things and also anything where the owner was in the exam

room too.  The vet orthopedic surgeon was a bit different though.  He ran his place like an actual hospital  He had everybody full on scrub before surgery and everything was almost exactly like a hospital.  The regular vet office where I was a tech was run a lot differently.  Most of them were I live are.  

 

Here all nurses wear scrubs now too.  Back when I worked in the hospital the nurses in the units and who were in surgery all wore scrubs but floor nurses wore white uniforms.  Back then some of them even wore caps. When I worked in NICU or the nursery or L&D I wore scrubs, but  when I would work on the floor as an aide I wore a white nurses dress, white hose and white clinic shoes like the nurses did.  The difference was that I didn't wear a cap and I didn't have a nursing school pin.  Candy stripers got caps though, We thought we were something after we got our caps lol.  I do miss seeing nurses in the white uniforms and caps like the old days though.  Back before everybody wore scrubs, male nurses wore white pants and white short sleeve button up shirts, the same as orderlies and janitors.  The difference with the male nurses was they wore a nursing school pin.  

 

Speaking of uniforms, at the vets office I wore scrubs and a long labcoat.  Usually nurses and techs in a hospital wore an above the knee labcoat but not the hip length jackets.  Only doctors wore the longer knee length labcoats, but at the vets office they told me to get a long coat because of practical reasons.  You got covered in pet hair there and you could just run over it with a lint brush between seeing clients.  I got one of the really nice ones that I thought looked so nice, and it was fuller than the regular boxy ones.  I even embroidered my name over the pocket, mainly because I like to embroidery, but it looked nice and everybody else there had their name on theirs.  

I'm a dishwasher at a restraunt before that work at a hotel as a person that folds pool towels and bead sheets and bed pillows

 

Do you fold the towels into those really cool things like swans and animals?  My daughter went on a cruise with her fiance a couple years ago and she said they would have their towels folded in a different animal every day.  We Googled how to do it but the only ones I can do well are the swans.

Work sucks! I got made redundant in April this year and feel great about it after recovering from the initial shock of course. I worked for 14 years in a sales based role before that. I was good at my job coz it was repetitive but had numerous problems relating with work colleagues and managers.

Currently I help with support services for a state agency. Most of my training is mailroom operations and some autopool. So if someone needs a passenger vehicle (so not the trucks on the side of the road) to take to a meeting, they come to us. 

I love the mailroom part. I see patterns in everything and it's a great way to memorize names and where the people work. I have that down. It's also great exercise walking the mail to their stops in the building that I currently work at. I rotate between two buildings. I have been at this building since November and it is much bigger, but much less social and less warm in ambiance than the main office for this district. My office room at my other location is also tiny compared to my current one but it's so cozy to me and it has a window unlike this one. I have a great boss. Most coworkers I seem to be content with. Since it's basically customer service, I strive to be cheerful constantly when someone comes up to the window. ;)
