Maybe it's the hormones...

But I can't believe how selfish some people are being.  I'm on's community boards and I got involved in this one conversation thread on changing hospital visitors policies, due to H1N1.  Most hospitals in area with infection are changing their policies to limiting adult visitors and eliminating any visitors under 12 (or even 18 in some cases).  There are all these women on this board saying that the hospital can get over it because they are bringing their kids in to see their new brother or sister.  They're saying that the hospital should just trust that parents have taught their kids good hygiene.  W T F?!  Are you kidding me?  I can't believe how selfish these women are being!!!  Yes, I understand you want your kids to be part of this and to meet their new sibling, but seriously?  You're going to risk my kid's health because you're a stupid Witch?!  We already have a chance that our son is going to have to spend time in the NICU, but I swear to God, if some pushy, dumb WITCH causes my son to get sick because she demands that her kid be allowed up to the MBU, I'm going to go Witch-slap her.  I'm not even joking.  If some selfish woman causes my son to have to stay at the hospital when I'm being discharged, I'm going to lose my freaking mind.

I really hope that Memorial enforces this with an iron fist.  The last thing I want to hear when I'm up in MBU is going to be someone else's snot-nosed brat screaming at the top of their lungs and coughing and smearing snot everywhere.  Just leave your little one at home and deal.  You're not special.  You don't get to break the rules just because you're you.  ARGH!!  This is what's wrong with society today.  This is why I wind up with students in my classroom who don't think the rules apply to them - because they learn from their parents at an early age that rules are for other people, but never for them.  QUIT RUINING SOCIETY YOU SELFISH WITCHES!!!

  1. These would be the same parents who won't keep their kid home from school or daycare when they are showing flu symptoms... oh wait that's because most of them don't think that the FLU symptoms they are talking about are the running noses, coughs, fevers... that is only a cold right?! People equate flu with N/V/D and colds with runny noses/cough. NOT SO PEOPLE!!! I'm worried about this too with coworkers as well as the fact that I work in a hospital where all these people will be treated! Being I have low WBC counts because of treatment and a bum lung because of the cancer i'm seriously considering the purchase of face masks to wear...
