Yeah but you still lose, because now you actually DO have to get the translator, who won't arrive until 2PM.
Sad, but true.But also hilarious! Great one!
ah, good old karma. sounds like you have to take the small victories when you can. probably doesn't happen very often, does it?
It was a tiny victory. She was wrong a good amount, but she never ever admitted it. This was one of those shining moments when it happened right in front of the attending.
Fizzy, why didn't you use your laptop?Just get to google translate and choose Spanish to English and such. It may take longer than normal conversation but at least you are not in her black list. Just a suggestion. :-) I know there are some nasty people out there but if you try your best to overcome obstacles, then your resident bitchiness doesn't worth bothering with. Cheerios.
Duy: You mean I should have raced home post-call and brought my giant laptop to work and attempted to catch the patient's rapid Spanish and type it in? I think if I saw an intern doing that, we would have laughed at them. It would have only made the siuation much worse.I made an effort to appease this resident, but she always just hated me and tried to make me miserable. No other residents were that way.
lol, I totally understood the situation, and I know how great that little revenge feels, especially when you're post-call!! :D
