Yearly Review

We are employees, we are evaluated. In our business it happens yearly, around our date of hire. We participate in "Skills Day", get our annual "TB Test" and go on our merry way.  But, there is always something our "bosses" will focus on..............its their duty.

Yearly Review

An exhaustive review
At my annual Eval,
When my boss examines closely
My employment, pal,
They've been keeping tabs on me
Stored carefully in my file,
The balance beam of Authority
At odds, with my peculiar style.

I won't do phone calls
Stupid Satisfaction Survey,
I don't like Surgical pre-ops
Not within my purvey,
But I do play Flex-Nurse
And temporary Charge,
That's what I'm banking on
My presence, at large.

I keep tabs on the workload
I will know all of the client's,
Histories and procedures
And every known appliance,
I'll know where they came from
And exactly how they'll bleed,
Should a crisis arise
I'm the one that you'll need.

You want to fit me
Into the mold of your dream,
Adjust your preconceptions
Before you let off some steam,
Because my dutiful rescues
Will save you, unexpected,
Just when you thought, "all is lost"
When I'm there, you're protected.

I won't bitch about breaks
I don't really care,
I need a snack on the 4 hours
Patients are needy, I am there,
That's why I work
My 12 hours and more,
It is not about me
This is a client driven store.

Sure, I need to stop
And have a bite to eat,
Everyone needs that kind of thing
But, that's not my beat,
I won't fill out forms
That claim, I didn't rest,
There are people here who need us
And they expect the best.

When I'm on that day
There will be a sense of security,
No matter how nasty it gets
I bring a sense of purity,
That will cut through the bullshit
And get the best things done,
A few of us can offer that
We are the ones.

So, it's my annual review
Boss, I know you have to say your piece,
Currently, you can't live without me
Though, I'm not your favorite niece,
You don't need to offer me Disneyland
No, you need to say, "Dude",
Without you, we would completely
Become totally unglued.

I love these rhymes!
Sounds like your review went ok?
must have made your day.
I had mine earlier this year
and it made me shed a tear. Improvements over applause
Is all that matters
didn't know that was a part
of the hiring clause.
