Drug rep talking about meet the teacher night and seeing parents in scrubs: Man, I was like, put something else on. That’s really not flattering.
I happened to be able to change. But many of us come directly from work and have jumped through hoops to leave early enough to get there, so give people a break.
I know there’s a controversy about wearing scrubs in public. I get it – we don’t want to bring germs from the hospital into the community or our homes; likewise, we don’t want to bring whatever’s at home into the hospital, either. Ideally we’d all decontaminate from whatever hazardous job we work. But no one is asking the preschool teachers, for example, to change before they come to whatever, even if they’re carting tons of germs to and fro. Did you, drug rep, change your clothes after going from clinic to clinic?
There will be other, more personal, less judgmental posts to come as it has been an eventful few months with plenty of fodder, but I had five minutes and was annoyed.
