I'm sadistic like that...

My poor nephew has to have an Aunt who enjoys things like this. A little bit ago he had to have a few staples in the ER after a mishap at the skate park. For reasons that make absolutely NO sense to me, his primary would not take out the staples. My sister was told she had to follow up with the physician that put them in to get them out. For them that meant another trip to the ER, many hours in the waiting room and another copay. That's were I came in......can you just picture me, rubbing my hands together in excitement, snickering that evil nurse laugh....all the while my nephew is scared and saying...

"no Mommy I don't want Aunt Ann to do it...I want to go to the hospital"

Ye of little faith.

Mind you I haven't acutally taken staples out before, but I did stay at the Holiday Inn express. I looked at the little device to take out staples, and well I'm a smart girl...looks like you insert staple here and squeeze..simple...so I was like "okay let's do it...drop your drawers!!!"(evil nurse laugh again)

"NO MOMMY>>>>>I WANT TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!!!!!"

...device in, pop..pop..pop, staples out.....Hey this is fun!!! That'll be $25.

Anyone need staples out? I'm cheaper then the ER!!

I took my own stitches out a few years ago. People make a big deal about it, but unless the incision looks infected, there is very little to worry about. For me, I was motivated by the $30 copay and the wait time, as well. Go Auntie Ann!

Poor little guy, did you tell him it wasn't you but your evil twin, I would have or my nephew would have hated me forever!

So funny! If they would have been on me, I would have taken them out myself before going back to the ER.

Hey just add that to your resume:) LOL! I watched a screw be taken out of my husbands ankle once & thought it would be some huge ordeal. I swear to God the doctor came in with a screw driver...and this was at Shock Trauma Baltimore! No Joke!

Poor little guy. Auntie Ann got a chuckle and he was scared out of 5 years of his life. You owe him a pizza or something!

Still keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I say open your own business to help defer adoption costs. People would be really excited if you even charged 1/2 their co-pay.
