Wasted Monday .......
Today has been a total waste. More accurate would be that I'm a total waste today.

This weekend in the ER just kicked my ass. There was a strange confluence of events that made the ER a mess.

First was the full moon. That always brings out the crazy.

Second was the fact that it was a weekend that falls right near the end of or in this case, right at the beginning of the month. That means all of the pain clinic junkies are out of narcs and in need of a fix. I can't understand why they can't get this straight ahead of time. That's a lie. I know exactly why it works like this. The pain clinics only write scripts for a certain number of narcs for a certain number of days. Lots (most) of the junkies can't keep from hitting the candy jar and run shy at the end of the month.

Third event in the, Crazy Trifecta, was the annual Octoberfest. Everyone knows that the BeirGarden is conducive for raising the ER population via any number of ways.

Most of the weekend it looked like a Fraternal Order of Police convention as, State, County and Local police were constantly in attendance with some dumbass or another. Generally drunk, obnoxious and bleeding.

Lots of car crashes and domestic cases too.

A couple of days like this wear your ass out.

Sucks getting old sometimes. The alternative to that kinda sucks more so I won't complain anymore about that.

We kept one guy from the big dirt nap and that's good. Had he showed up 10 minutes later I'm sure he'd have crumped. As it is, he'll probably do ok till the next time.

That's it for today. Dinner time.
