street cred

An actual conversation I had with a co-worker a couple of weeks ago (the context was talking about the request for people to volunteer to be charge nurses...)

C: I'm going to volunteer to be in charge...

Me: If you become a charge nurse, I'll quit.

C: You can't quit.  You need this job.  No one else will hire you...rookie.

Me: You better check yourself before you wreck yourself...

(long pause)

Me: And shotgun bullets are bad for your health.

(the the Resident who was sitting in the corner minding his own business piped up)

Resident: Wow.  You just earned yourself some major street cred.
