Is that okay, Hun?And a nurse giggled and then blurted out:
Oh I hate when patient's call me "Honey!" "Sugar" is fine, but "Honey?" Never!And so the other names like "Nutrasweet" were briefly entertained, as was "Candy." The chuckles continued.
After a lengthy discussion, there appeared to be a general consensus amongst the nurses and techs in our lab that "Sugar" was okay.
Just never, ever call a nurse "Honey."
Consider yourself warned.
