  • A perfectly tied tie

    Today, we're seeing more and more sloppy ties, more things created by apparently random waves than in predictable outcomes.

    I don't suppose that this is something I need to worry more about, as much as I write and talk about it. I'll say to many patients what they're thinking (consciously or unconsciously): "Well, he knows how to tie a tie, maybe he'll know how to take care of me."

    While caring for a quadriplegic while in college, I found that I wasn't allowed to leave until I tied the tie to his satisfaction. He was satisfied with nothing less than perfection.

    My competence is implied in that tying.

    A while ago I worked for a company that insisted I wear the uniform everyone else in the facility wore. It included an orange golf shirt. After a brief fight, I complied. As soon as I showed up in it a resident said, "You drive the van, don't you?"

    I should have worn a tie over the golf shirt.

    I realize of course that a tie isn't an option for everyone. But it's something I can use to display my respect for the work and my patients. It also makes me feel smarter.

      I don't wear a tie but I do wear dress pants, dress shoes and a crisp shirt. I also believe it's a manner of respect for my profession...and my patients.

      I sometimes shake my head at what I see others wearing (males predominantly...because I'm a male).

      A recent male student we had wore VANS for shoes, sloppy fitting kaki's and short sleeve polo shirts.

      I'm sure he looks fine for a trip to the local mall or out for a couple of brewskies....

          I thought about it Diane.

          Memes have to start somewhere after all. My "star pow..." sorry, couldn't say that with a straight face. Anyway, most memes fail to get anywhere, especially when I try to start them.
