Because Now I'm So Lazy That I Just Blog Conversations

Mark: Do you ever think about going to medical school?
Me: What? No.
Mark: Oh, okay.
Me: Well. Maybe once or twice.
Mark: I knew it.
Me: I have to remember that it's not like Scrubs.
[I should mention that we're on my couch watching a Scrubs marathon.]
Mark: Or Grey's Anatomy.
Me: It's not like Grey's Anatomy? Forget it then.
Mark: Maybe it's a little like Grey's Anatomy.
Me: It's funny, actually, I was just talking to Melissa about wanting to be a doctor. Then two seconds later I missed my stop on the train.
Mark: Ha.
Me: But I was saying that I think I'm only interested because I could wear scrubs to work.
Mark: Yeah, really.
Me: No, really. That might be the deciding factor.
Mark: [looks at me]
Me: They're like pajamas! That you can wear all day!

I would never underestimate the importance of getting to wear comfortable clothes to work. Seriously, probably the biggest issue for me if I finally get myself a new job is I'd need to buy a whole new wardrobe, because NO other office is as casual as where I work now.

I'm right there with you, Stefanie.

I wear t-shirts, jeans and flip-flops to work.

They actually throw a parade for me when I wear things like skirts or high heeled shoes.

On winter time we wear slippers and yes, we have come to work in our pajamas.

I love my job.

PJs all day. Every Day. Sounds pretty nice.

An FYI....being a resident is actually more like scrubs then you would think. It's the only medical show my sister can watch because it was the most like her residency/internship.

And GA...also, not to far off. She is an attending at a teaching hospital (like Derek or Preston) and while she is sleeping with interns, it does happen apparently a lot.

As a nurse I can say that wearing scrubs to work is a definite plus.
The downside is you never really know anyone you work with. You would be suprised how much you can tell about a person by the clothes they wear.
Sometimes I will meet someone outside of work and they will be wearing a totally suprising outfit. Hot pink capri pants and a tube top. You think to yourself. I never would have pictured that guy dressing this way.

I think that's the only thing I love about my job. Right now, I'm wearing flip-flops. Tomorrow, I'm thinking sweatpants and a t-shirt.

Melissa said...

Hee I love the idea of running into any guy wearing capris and a tube top.

Red said...

Oooh. I can dress down at my job but not that much. Hire me please.

don't call me MA'AM said...

Oh, pajamas all day long would be sheer heaven. Did you hear that there's some movement to get nurses back into 'less comfy' work clothes? Apparently, there's a group of people who think it's too difficult to tell the orderlies, custodians, and nurses apart. Puh-leeze.
