outfits inappropriate for work

Ok, I have been going through my clothes. I found both the pink bra and the wings in the bottom of a closet. So, I put them on. I did not actually step outside the house wearing this. I think I need a costume party. Anyhow, it’s rather fun trying these silly things on. I’d have to wear the wings over my White Coat to doctor in this outfit…..

    Imagine wearing this on a Zoom meeting. Hey–wear what you want when working from home, right?!

      Yes, this is why I think my county hospital let me go. When they insisted we wear photo id, I had two things to attach it to: a necklace of safety pins for those punk mood days and a “Circ d Soleil” id thing that I’d found at a garage sale….
      my CFO did not like EITHER.

        so old school thinking. Did they not think this would, perhaps, make patients smile and open up the conversation more? Personally, I would love it.

          Oh, well, I made them nervous on multiple levels. Grrl. Argued. Stood up for patients, nurses, maintenance, they said I was an amazing diagnostician, great relationship with specialists. So who didn’t like me? My male family practice partners. I think I was unloaded to keep me from a leadership position. And now the chickens might come home to roost. Sometimes you gotta light the slow match….

            also once I opened my own tiny clinic there were multiple issues re the hospital. Almost as if (gasp) they were discriminating and trying to shut me down. Gosh. I should probably talk to a really good attorney, as there have been multiple lawsuits across the country with small practices fighting big organizations that try to shut them down. Also, I am sure this has NOTHING to do with the emergency room treating me badly and not to MY standard of care the last time I went in…. oh, and not to the US standard of care either, so I asked them to please review and entirely drop the bill, including to my insurance company. I think that I will wait one more week, then write to my insurance and cc the state insurance commissioner. Do you think that would help? I do.
