Does Anyone Have a Pen?

What is it with Nurses and their pens?

LOL

It’s amazing how a nurse is when it comes to their ‘favorite’ pen (or pens). It’s like a full fledge wrestling match if you take their pen, or god forbid you forget to give them their pen back.

The variety of favorites reaches beyond the depths of this blog, but in recent years drug reps have been known to be the best pen supplier.

I love the reaction you can get when you’re around a group of nurses and ask the question, ‘Does anyone have a Pen?’.

You usually get one of two reactions.

Either you get pummeled by a sea of pens, or no one answers you (because they don’t want to share their pen and run the risk of losing it).

Ever had a nurse hover over you while you borrowed their pen?

Like a rabid animal watching their dinner.

Be prepared to suffer the consequences of not having your own pen and needing to borrow one in the company of nurses.

Carpe Diem

  1. You speak wise truths in this post.

    I have accidentally (or purposely) taken a few pens from nurses and felt the wrath. Then I’ve had a few nice pens taken and dealt the wrath. lol

  3. Rabid animals, LOL! I have my secretary order me my “special” ones, LOL, so I’m just as guilty as the next nurse. I get lots, because I invariably leave them all over the building…

  5. I am what they refer to as a pen stealer…I walk away with them without even really thinking about it…I do, however, hover if someone has one my pens.

    Don’t mess with my pens, lol.

  7. LOL! That’s always my first question at a drug or equipment inservice “So, where’s my pen?” Because I have priorities you know.
