Today at work, everyone was anticipating bad weather. One coworker who lives out of town rides in a vanpool. They left work early at 1:45 pm, even through the storm wasn't predicted to hit until much later. She is pretty much expecting that she won't make it into work tomorrow. Another coworker lives 30 miles away (North on the Interstate). We doubt if she will make it in because she doesn't do well with winter driving.
I'm feeling a bit resentful because of the expectation that I will be at work tomorrow- regardless of the weather. Now, I know that the hospital doesn't close, I just get irritated that because I walk to work, it is expected that I can make it in. I want to know what makes it safer for me to walk a mile and a half on uncleared sidewalks than it is for coworkers to drive on an interstate highway that the road crews have been working to keep clear all night. I had the same thing this summer during the flood. Since I live in town, obviously I can make it. Of course, this summer, I lived on the opposite side of the flooded river. To get to work, I had to wade ankle deep through the flood water to get to the only open bridge across the river. GRRRRR!!!
Ok. Enough ranting, I'm just feeling a bit put upon. That on top of having an angry patient (who is still a bit delirious and agitated) throw a phone book at me and tell me to go to H***. It just topped off my day. So, I'm tired and cranky, and now I'm going to finish my glass of wine (and maybe have another) and watch the ice pellets fall.
