Passive-Aggressive by Proxy

A new low in the fight against H1N1.

Ten charts to be seen at shift change, all of them “Flu-Like Symptoms” or some variant, all of them children. And suddenly a little boy 7 or 8 comes wandering in, through the door prominently marked “STAFF ONLY” as we’re getting report.

“Mommy wants to know when we’re coming in.”

“Oh sweetheart,” one colleague says. “Mommy needs to come ask herself.” And gently shoos him out.

Mommy never did come to ask.

    Using the sweetness of children…. for shame.

    Hehe, I hope that when someone actually did see that child/mom combo, they gave the mom some major cut-eye.
