**** I can relate Vee. I had to wear a surgical cap (kinda like a
shower cap and I can't for the life of me remember what they are
called! My mine blanked on me.) Anywho, we had to wear them every day
where I worked in Westlake, OH. We assembled Arteriol Blood Gas
Samplers (had to put a tiny piece of Heprin into a syringe barrel and
cap it). I'd get up every day and "do" my hair, get it just right and
have to go to work. YUK! How can some people look good in hairnets and
caps, take them off, shake their hair and still look good? Then you get
goofs like me that looked really awful with mushed hair.
One good thing about working there, it cured me of biting my nails. We
also had to wear latex gloves and lab coats. Ever try biting your nails
and have them smell like sweaty latex gloves?? Double YUK!
Show us what our next emoticon should look like. Join the fun.
