The Universe always has a way of taking you down a notch when things are going well and you start to get full of yourself.
Case in point:
Last week I had to attend an EHR (electronic health record) training class for our new system. I was sitting in a room full of physicians so I figured I was in the right place. I was zipping along feeling really good about how easy it was. At the end of the class, come to find out, I was in the dumbed down specialist version. Yep.
How did this happen?
Instead of calling the classes something helpful like “Level 2 training for specialists” or “Level 2 training for primary care,” they named the classes for planets because a space theme sounds so much cuter and cute, as we know, helps facilitate learning.
I was registered for the correct class. They happened to be next door to each other. I went to the same classroom I went to for my Level One class. No one said, “Hey, this is the specialist class.” There were no signs up. I even introduced myself to the instructor and the entire class as a family practicioner and not one single person raised even one eyebrow.
Oh, well. Humiliation is good for the soul in small doses.
I think it will be fine in the end. They were teaching the cardiologists and urologists and the gastroenteriologists how to do stuff like pediatric diabetes visits and Medicare wellness check ups for some reason so I got what I needed even if they didn’t.
But dang. Planets?
THEN, as I was leaving, I tucked my water bottle into my computer bag. When I got to the truck and pulled it out, it was much lighter. Why? It had spilled the bulk of its contents into the remarkably water proof bag. It not only keeps water out of the bag, it also keeps water inside of the bag. On one level this was good. I didn’t look like a dripping fool walking across the vast parking lot. However, my computer was swimming in several inches of water.
Fortunately, by some miracle, the computer still works and will get to spend the long weekend drying out. Come to think of it, I probably need to spend the long weekend drying out!
Yay for long weekends….
