  • I just knew that the ugly topic of pay and having to work on this very special and happy day would rear its ugly head again in these comments!

    Why are some nurses so hell bent on begrudging others their happiness and the wellbeing of patients which is destroying the profession's reputation.

    Life is very short, relax, smile and enjoy something, sometime (which might be on a different day) that makes you happy instead of focusing on how much you were paid on that day or 'felt' you had a RIGHT to!

    People feel begrudged when they are treated badly. If you look at the responses above yours they are more aghast, humerous or informational than begrudging. Seems like the ugliness that has raised its head is a somewhat patronising attitude which, incidentally, has its facts wrong regarding rights.
    Have a nice day now!

    so what are the true facts you refer to regarding rights and what attitude is being patronised? Very puzzling comment.

  • A Friday at work, in community; normal pay, normal hours and normal conditions. No fuss, no faff, no moans & no regular pharmacy open!
