I hate the pager. I really, really hate the pager. Let me count the ways:
1. I get paged for major trauma. Major trauma sucks. That sort of s---'s not s'posed to happen to people.
2. I get paged in the middle of the night. I'm freaking tired, folks, can't you tell? I had two all nighters over the weekend and now I've got the durn thing again until 8:00 AM (-05:00 GMT).
3. I'm not free to move around as I'd like or even cook dinner. I have to be ready to be at the hospital within 15 - 20 mins. of the page. It takes 10 to get there by car. No, I don't sleep in my clothes, but it's pushing it to get there on time if I get paged out while I'm asleep. I can't go anywhere loud, where I can't hear the durn thing.
4. I get non-emergency pages at strange times - like the middle of church.
What can I learn from this? A lot, I hope...
