This stuff only happens to me...

Just a short story for you before I go pick up the kidlets:

Today I went to the doctor because I have a bladder infection, and I need it taken care of before the surgery next Wednesday. I'm standing outside the bathroom waiting for another patient to come out. As he exits, he ... wait for it ... DROPS his pee sample and it SHATTERS! UM... SPLASHING me with PEE. GROSS!!@#^$&^%@#!

Okay. It was seriously disgusting. Luckily, I was still wearing my scrubs. I could tell the guy felt really bad, so I put on my professional face and told him, "Don't worry, I get splashed with much worse at work." Which isn't entirely true, as I mostly just come in contact with people's sweat and the occasional blood -- but usually with the proper precautions in place (gloves, mask, etc). Pee? Not so much. And all over my hand? Rarely. Ugh.

I could go on, but I need to go get my antibiotics!

OK that's a yuck. Hope you washed your hands! And hope he didn't pee on the seat. Get those antibiotics in so you're clear for surgery!

EWWWW! So gross! And you were so NICE about it! I probably would have said something nasty.
