I had a patient come in once who was pregnant and complained about how she was craving dirt. To eat. I'd heard about it but it was the first time I'd actually encountered it in real life. Can't imagine looking at a pile of dirt and feeling hungry.

I had an elderly male patient, whom I had only met once, tell me that he had sex dreams about me. I'm a middle age, slightly overweight, bland looking female. I had done nothing in the last bit provocative. I was literally speechless, and then pretended I heard nothing, wrapped it up, and let him go.

Uhmmmm, ew ew ew ew ew ew ew. I'm sure you are a lovely person, but what a massive creep. The number of times I've caught patients (or patient's husbands 👀) looking at my butt is just gross.

I started my career in the county hospital, inpatient psychiatric unit. Please specify the crazy you wish to hear about 🙃 I met “Jesus” and “Santa” multiple times, had a guy come in with a baggie full of wires he swore he cut out of his arm, had a gal with a history in life eerily similar to my own and she just seemed to have had a reeeeeaaaalllly bad week that put her over the edge (she actually f/u with OP assistance and is doing well I’m told), had a guy throw me like a rag doll once (he apologized immediately, long story), had a doctor I worked with that should have been a pt (longer story), and the families were all wayyy worse than the pts. 😬

What can I do about an IEP teacher that gives students answers on their tests? They have the accommodation to test in the academic support room (for quiet). Two of these students only answered 4 questions while in the classroomm, but after finishing the test in the support room they answered all of the questions and did very well on the test. I know that they did not know the info (they don't listen, take good notes or study). Is there anything legally that says these teachers can't do that?

This might be a bit off track as the bowl name clearly suggests BIG4, however will still go on asking.
I have an offer from a reputed bank in the UK and for the banks, it’s essential to get a security/vetting clearance before they issue CoS. I’m currently waiting for vetting clearance outcome.

Not sure if this is a requirement for BIG4 offers too. But if anybody has an idea, can you please tell me how much time does it take before we get the clearance?

What are everyone’s thoughts on big wage gaps in a couple. My boyfriend makes about 40k now and realistically won’t make more than 70k in his chosen career. I make more than double what he makes now and suspect that wage gap will only keep increasing. Is this anyone else’s situation? I don’t know how to handle as we have more shared expense (ie rent). Splitting payments equally doesn’t seem fair since I’m pushing for a nicer and more expensive place but I also don’t want to make him feel bad.
