So I was heading up to meet with my supervisor last Wednesday, and hopped in the elevator as I always do. There was a man in the elevator - probably a relative of a patient - who nodded at me as I got in. I smiled back at him and at the two nurses who were also in the elevator. The elevator stopped on the third floor and the nurses got off.
"How's your day going?" asked the man.
"Pretty good, how about yours?" I answer (elevator chit chat is a common occurance in the hospital)
"Ok." pause "So, are you a nurse here?"
"No, I'm a social worker."
"I'd love to take you out sometime."
At this point, as if on cue, the doors opened and I stepped out onto my floor, flashed a big grin, and said, "You have a great weekend!"
A gentle let-down for him, and a good ego boost for me.
Never a dull moment in this place.
