Please don't page me

Orientation was remarkably boring and a waste of time. Practically nothing of relevance was discussed and I'm still likely to have no idea where anything is when we start next Thursday. On the other hand, we received our long coats, ID badges, and pagers today. That was pretty much the highlight of the week.

We discovered Liquor Barn on the way home this afternoon. That place really rocks. The prices on alcoholic beverages in the store are even lower than in Louisiana. And the selection is amazing. And it's fun going to a place with barn in the name.

Did you have shorter coats in med school? I'm not familiar with this coat length system.

Yes. Medical students, as well as lab technicians etc, wear coats that are slightly longer than waist length (like a regular jacket). Physicians wear "long coats" that are approximately knee-length for most people. I'm not sure what the historical derivation of the difference is, but in practical terms, it helps define at a glance for nurses etc whom to take seriously (residents and attendings) and whom to ignore completely (students).

I am looking for some good pet urine cleaner resources for our ratings and review websites and believe it or not, yours popped up when I searched for pet urine cleaner sites. After reading your posts, I can see why Google led me to your site. Even though it's not what I am looking for, I'm glad I stopped long enough to read this post - thanks. Just thought you'd like to know.
