So, This Happened…

*Blonde Tech glancing at order* “What’s a triple A?”

Me: Did I really just hear that question asked by a cardiology coworker? Yes.  “Abdominal aortic aneurysm…it’s when part the descending aorta weakens. If it ruptures, it’s a life threat.”

“So, what does the abdomen have to do with it?”

What. The. Actual. Fuck? What part of BLOODY FUCKING DESCENDING AORTA DID YOU NOT FUCKING COMPREHEND?

Apparently, not all of my coworkers have taken the same amount of Anatomy & Physiology that I had to take. (Let’s face it, the amount of A&P for EMT-level classes is a joke.) Every time I deal with her, her level of ignorance sets new lows. (Why yes, she’s also a CNA at a long-term care facility…so glad you asked!) Paramedics, do you have your shocked face on? Good.

Perhaps I’m being an elitist college-educated bitch here, but how the hell is someone this unfamiliar with cardiac anatomy? My 8th grade Health class covered cardiac blood flow, and that was in a public school over a decade ago!

  1. Ummm, maybe the hair dye has penetrated a little further than she wanted??? sigh…

  2. Ahhh yes…Don’t really miss those days of dealing with such people…My BP is much better and teaching others EMS skills is just as rewarding..Maybe not as exciting, but easier on my body!!!

  3. What’s ironic is that this is not a blonde joke. Lol!
