A while back, I mentioned several unusual titles for healthcare professionals, including "Chairman of Pain" and "Sleep Fellow". I wish to add another to that list: Night Sister. In Ireland, the head nurse for a ward is called a Sister, a relic of the days when they were mostly nuns. The head nurse who works night shift is called the Night Sister. I don't do night shifts myself, so I've never seen her, but I imagine her wearing a billowy black cloak, with black eyes that none dare look upon, and she carries a poison dagger with her always and never speaks. Also, her blood is black instead of red.

In my list of things teachers do that make students hate them, I forgot one important point. Imagine emailing a teacher, asking a simple question like "I missed class Thursday, is there any work I need to make up?" The teacher responds with "My phone number is XXX-XXXX, call me." So you call the teacher, and of course she's not in, and you leave a message, and you play phone tag for a while, and finally you catch her, and she says "Why don't you meet me at my office on Wednesday." And Wednesday's not a good day for you, so you compare times and dates, and it becomes really awkward, and finally you agree to a time it's actually going to be really difficult for you to make, just so you don't look like a loser. So you show up at her office (which is a half hour walk from your house) and ask her your original question - if there's any work to make up - and she answers: "No".

Could you really not have told me that in my original email? I know there are situations where it's more respectful to agree to talk to someone in person, but this is not one of those times.

The most hated question I get from clients via email is, "So, do you have everything?" They make me put their entire case in my head, pull it out and stick the new numbers in, THEN find out that, no, I'm still missing one of the questions I had previously asked them.

I have 435 clients. I don't recall the status of each one of them in their work-in-progress. THEY are supposed to remember what I've asked them to do and just get it to me, not rely on ME to remember what they were supposed to be doing. I can figure it out again, it just takes twice as long.

In practice, I ask them to come back in to finish up when they ask me that. I tell them to make sure they bring everything I had told them I needed. Point is, if I'm going to spend time thinking about them, they're going to be the ones in front of me talking to me. They can damn well make an appointment if they want my time.

In Swedish — much like in German — it's approx. "sick sister". The same, obviously gendered word, tends to be use for male nurses as well.
