My Blooper

Woke up this morning, jumped in shower, coffee while I dressed. Proceeded to drive the 45min through country road to the city. Walked into work, clocked in, made assignments. While making assignments, I noticed that we had 1 too many nurses. Hmm... I thought, It will be a fight to decide who wants to go home because everyone does. 30 minutes later I realized it was my day off!

1. In my dummy defense, I have worked the last 11 days.
2. It would have been nice if someone gave me a heads up when I walked through the doors! Instead they found it funny.

3. Really need to work on life not being so automatic.

What is sad is that this was not the 1st time I have done this. I do it about once a year. Last time, I did not realize it was my day off till the end of the shift. I had 5 days on, 1 day off and another 7 days on. Somehow I was off a day on when day off was. With us always being short nurses, everyone thought I was called in.


  1. UGHHHH! I saw this one coming as your story evolved. I will do anything I can on a day off not to show up to the ER...I need that complete break. At least you got to greet all your coworkers with a "beautiful good morning to you" before you went home and back to bed! LOL

    I have never had that happen....hope it never does!

  2. Been there, done that, not pretty!
