Today, working as a CNA, my nurse convinced me that in order to collect a stool sample, you had to have the patient take a dump in your hand. I only found out he was kidding after I collected the sample. FML

Being a CNA myself, I have to wonder if you paid attention in class. They generally teach you how to do samples, and it always involves a container of some sort.

I hope you were at least wearing gloves. It seems like a silly thing to wonder, but then again, you didn't have the sense to know the nurse was kidding, either.
