The young paramedic's Facebook post showed how frustrated she was that she had to sit through a PALS class (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) in a room where she was the only paramedic. "Uggghhh" she posted, "someone just shoot me! They should make a PALS class just for the paramedics." Her hardened experience of < 1 year as a paramedic had convinced her of her mastery.
"Why don't you try to pay attention" he replied, "and try to gain some experience from the other health care professionals in the room? Many of them work in critical care settings and can help you understand more than just the algorithms."
These were not the words she wanted to hear and so she continued texting and posting through the day assuring that not a single bit of new information darkened the six inches between her ears.
This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to you or someone you know is purely coincidental. If the shoe fits however...

Ketamine - It's a dessert topping and a floor wax!

I've always had a passion for words, for the art of oration. This set of words has set my mind ablaze today. Spend every day learning new words - and worlds!
