What did she say?

When I first graduated from high school, I worked for an ophthalmologist. The nurse in the office was a high strung, highly stressed single mother of four and grandmother of two. She was angry (most of the time), cranky (all of the time) and she was hilarious and great fun to work with.

I ran into her several years ago at the airport in Las Vegas, of all places, after not seeing her for at least ten years. She had remarried and was living in a tiny town in Louisiana. She was happy and looked great. These were some of her favorite sayings (usually said about the patients):
  • He'd bitch if you hung him with a new rope
  • He's not worth the pound of lead it would take to blow his brains out
  • Well, she can just get glad in the same shoes she got mad in
  • It's colder than a well digger's butt in Montana out there
