Today, while trying to give an immunization to a "special" 13-year-old, I got spit on, kicked, almost bitten, and had a chair thrown at me. When it was all over, I flinched when the patient tried to hug me. Her mom called me a "b*tch" and I later found out she wasn't a "special" child. FML

25, I'll blame that one on the common "typographical error" people always seem to
blame their own incorrect spelling, wording, grammar, punctuation and whatever else.

But last time I checked, I was sure the quotes were after the period... Perhaps they noticed and fixed it or I could be wrong.

In America we do stuff like "this." The reason we do it is because printing presses could easily damage periods/full stops, but not quotation marks, since the part was bigger.

Seriously, I think it's stupid too. The British way makes more sense, and I am generally inclined to follow it, since I'm a computer programmer, and the American way is ambiguous sometimes.

I'm serious when I say YDI, because you should actually think about your career before you go through school and what not. it's your fault, so stop complaining, and also it's not that big of a deal either.

132 you're an idiot :)

Anyway OP should have checked beforehand whether or not the kid was special. Aren't you supposed to know the patients that are coming in? Like with charts or something?

I think #10 is a prime candidate for an ass-whipping. Kids have TOO much power in this country, and this is why they think they can act like little bad-asses. Consider yourself lucky that you don't live in the Caribbean, #10. Down there, if you act up, ANY adult can beat your ass. With an attitude like yours, 10, you'd catch a beating every other day.

Exactly how were they "screwing up on the job?" They were giving the kid an immunization. The way the stupid kid was acting, no wonder they assumed he was special, only in more severe cases, they actually can't help it. This is entirely the mother's fault. Not the OP's.


OP most likely assumed the patient was special after being bitten, which is a reasonable assumption if you're being attacked by a thirteen year old.

Four year olds fight violently against shot? Not special. Thirteen year fights violently enough to throw a chair at someone and bite them? Most likely special.

By the time you're thirteen, it IS unreasonable for you to commit assault, for any reason. If the mother wasn't aghast, the only logical explanation is that he's special, so he doesn't know better, right? right.

Umm, no, it's not OP's fault, they didn't screw up anything. It us very possible that the child has a very severe needle phobia, but at 13, that's no excuse. They should be better behaved at that age, and that is why OP assumed the child was "special."
