No, you are a middle man that most people HAVE to use due to a rigged market. When the housing markets are hot with over speculation and foreign money, their sales are because they're so great. When the housing market is down, it's due to the economy and other factors.

Those shows on Bravo prove that. Yes, it takes hustle to get listings but they make far too much money for what they put into it.

Nope, R32, you are the only poster on DL who has ever seen, or had experience with, a dentist, lol. I do agree with you that more than a few seem to be almost entirely money-driven, though I wouldn't say the majority.

And R50, I can't believe it took 49 other replies for someone to say nurses, either. As soon as I saw the title of the thread, I knew at least one person would say nurses. I'm not saying that person(s) is you, but any time there is a thread about nursing/nurses, there is always at least one asshole who cannot wait to demean the entire nursing profession: we're all fat, lazy fraus or bitchy gay men who get off on having "power" over our patients, but in reality, we're just bedpan attendants who need to get off our asses and bring the apple juice & jello quickly and with a smile. There are insufferable people in every profession--I am sure you, or someone, will say this post is proof that you are correct--but you'll find many more nurses who are empathetic, educated, intelligent and skilled professionals, who work their asses off to, hopefully, keep their patients alive, aid in their recovery, and assist them on the path to health, just as much as physicians & other clinicians, if not more so. Nurses are underpaid and definitely underappreciated, but the vast majority love their jobs, genuinely enjoy caring for, and helping, their patients and people in general, and who want to make a difference, regardless of how small, in patients' lives. And yet, there is always someone who cannot wait for the first chance to belittle the entire nursing profession. And I'm not even talking about myself, because as an NP, I know it's the staff RNs within hospitals & health systems--the RNs in the E.D. when you have a stroke or heart attack; the RNs in the ICU who are fighting to keep their COVID patients alive, if at all possible; the surgical RNs in the O.R. when you need your gallbladder removed, your knee replaced, or a malignant tumor excised; the labor & delivery RNs holding the hand of, and offering reassurance to, a scared, laboring mother-to-be & her newborn infant, etc.--the pre-hospital and/or flight RNs within EMS & MICUs, LPNs & RNs in skilled nursing facilities, long-term care & locked dementia units, hospice, rehabilitative medicine centers, et al., who are the real MVPs of medicine and health care. Rant over. Love you, R50.

And thank you, R60. I'm a nurse, and if nurses aren't giving everyone what they want, it's because we just can't be everything to everyone - the patients, the families, the doctors, our employers, clueless regulators, etc. We try, but we just don't have the time or the resources to deliver everything to everyone, which mortally offends some people because they aren't getting what they need and they don't understand why, or don't want to. But we're there, giving what we can, even when there's a pandemic on we're short of PPE, because we can help or save people. It's worth doing.

One of the social workers I encountered during my late mother's travails turned out to be unlicensed. The facility where she worked was a magnet for low-level sociopaths. The incompetent administrator didn't give a shit, even though it's a criminal offense to hold oneself out as a social worker/practice without a valid license. I reported them all to the state and the shady company that ran the place eventually went out of business. I was so relieved when I was able to transfer my mom to a better facility.

Kind of embassed to collect but as long as it's offered....yet some Uber drivers are still driving; for whatever reason they didn't qualify for unemployment. But I'm almost 61, obese and need blood pressure needs. So maybe I should just stay away from Uber or other jobs dealing with the public for now if the government is paying unemployment-- and even an extra $300 weekly again before taxes for 11 weeks.

Doctors especially surgeons and I say this as a doctor myself. In my country, a vast majority of our seniors and professors are so horrible to us, some are outright abusive. A lot of them have literally slapped med students and residents infront of patients at some point. There are definitely good eggs, but they are few and far inbetween.

When I first started med-school, I thought maybe a bout of bad luck had made me come across the worst people medicine had to offer, but after hearing about my friends' experiences in other hospitals and some of my own down the line, i have since changed my mind.

I have concluded that my field tends to attract people who enjoy having power over others, want to be put on a pedestal and look down on everyone else from their perceived "moral high ground". I also genuinely believe atleast two people I went to med-school with were psychopaths.

As I said, there are good people too who really want to help patients but there's not enough of them.

quote]Art critics, particularly those that criticize others' work for not fulfilling their ambiguous standard when they cannot even produce anything close to that.

I disagree, R108, not entirely on the occupation but on the explanation/example. It's not that I haven't met a share of insufferable art critics, but those are almost invariably the lazy and untalented ones. Very few art critics, art historians, and art curators arel artists, but there is no reason that they should be.

Fundamentally, an art critic describes art within some context, usually art history and/or contemporary culture, and tries to understand something of the artist's intent, and to summarize these as with his informed, critical eye. He isn't meant to thumps up/down everything, but to present a logical case for his perspective and impressions on the artworks.

He's not meant to demonstrate that he can do the equal or better of the artist with his own mind, his own ideas, and his own hands — that would be a competition not a critique.

In the end art isn't about technique, proficiency with brush strokes, or shadow, or acrylic versus oil, or impasto versus glazing... Art is about generating a reaction, stirring the senses, making people somehow take notice.

Architects can design buildings and have a unique way of seeing things, but if you want to understand architecture, for fuck's sake don't read books/manifestos by an architect, read a book by someone who understands architecture and can put his understanding to words. The same is true for artists. The art historians, critics, writers are the people who describe and interpret art, who hopefully find new audiences to it, or allow it to be seen in new ways. Their jobs are not to do the same painting better, faster, and cheaper. It's not a competition.

[quote]Museum curators. They're worse than academics because they are given money to buy things and that makes them think they're more important than the art. Also, many of them are lunatics.

R111: Museum curators are usually art historians. Very few are ever "given money to buy things." In the lucky few rich institutions with purchasing budgets, the head curators who head departments usually watch for potential acquisitions that fill a gap or represent some opportunity for a museum, but they work through the museum director and various acquisition committees to put forth various candidates for purchase. It's rarely ever a certainty or an easy or quick decision to buy something, and it's usually kept under wraps for months or years until it finally happens—and then it's the executive director who takes all the credit. The purchasing aspect of a curator's work is usually very small. Museum curators take a long and quiet view of things, they dress all their lives like art historians, very few are Machiavellian in plotting career advancement or time in the limelight . Museum directors (and art gallery people) on the other hand...

There happens to be an extreme shortage of psychiatrists, OP. Back when we had a functioning state hospital system & before managed care, people had insurance that covered the cost of however many therapy sessions they believed the patient needed. Sometimes it was twice a week for years. Psychiatrists had their own practices, plus they were affiliated with state psych hospitals (which had populations of hundreds to thousands of patients), plus they would take call for local medical hospitals for emergencies (suicide attempts, drug ODs, freak-outs in the ER). Plus they testified in court cases as paid expert witnesses. And there were far, far fewer guns back then.

In a nutshell, shrinks had it easy. Then came psych drugs. The destruction of the American mental health system was started & managed care made psychiatry a not-very-lucrative profession. The reimbursement for therapy sessions & the number of sessions was set by insurance companies & was very low. Nobody wanted to be a psychiatrist anymore.

There are waiting lists to see psychiatrists just to get medication evaluation. Almost all therapy sessions are now done by social workers, psychologists, NPs & PAs. I knew an NP who worked doing medication evaluations for a county health clinic. The psychiatrist did the original prescribing. The NP saw the patient every 3 months for evaluation. He HATED the job. This was a guy who began as an orderly, became an LP.n, then RN, then NP, so it’s not as if he never worked hard before. He said it was all junkies, lowlifes, crazy scary people dotted with frustrated never-jailed people. They lead crazy lives. He was allowed to give 15 minutes to every patient, then onto the next. He worked 12 hour shifts of seeing patients every 15 minutes so he could renew the scripts or bounce the patient back to the shrink if medication re-valuation was necessary. He ultimately quit to save his own sanity.

40 years ago the crazies would be locked up, the neurotics would get therapy sessions twice a week paid for by insurance. Some people would have a short stay in a regular hospital’s psych ward then go home. The serious crazies who came into the hospitals were seen by an on call shrink & he would make a decision to commit the patient to a psych hospital. My mom’s friend who was a nurse from 1940s-1980s recounted how she would call a dr in the middle of the night & demand they write transfer orders for a crazy, disruptive patient to the psych hospital. The dr would give a verbal order, police would come & transport the patient to one of 3 state hospitals in our county . No more problem.

I don't get all the nurse hate...in the last 8 years I've been hospitalized several times and have yet to have been cared by anyone insufferable. They all did their very difficult jobs with a lot of patience and kindness, that I could see. I have run across a couple that were annoying (one excessively perky and one incompetent) but...don't get the insufferable tag. Unless y'all are really shitty demanding patients.

Same thing with regular teachers. Many aren't super smart (you don't have to be super smart to teach...just smarter than your students) and it's a thankless job but I haven't really run across that many who could be called insufferable.

by Anonymousreply 179March 19, 2021 7:11 AM

NOW, when it comes to being insufferable (smug, know it alls who think they're God's gift to the world because of what they do) then here's a good list:

1) Academics/college level professors: I've known many and been around a lot more and they're a very special class of nut. Academia is a fantasy land they dwell in....like something out of a novel or bad British TV show. Most academics are just really old students who never grow up. It's all petty bitchery and rivalry and lusting after students and having very high opinions of themselves. And, many of the young academics are morons...though to be fair, I also think many of the old ones are too but they probably actually had better educations to start with.

by Anonymousreply 180March 19, 2021 7:16 AM

2) Anyone with any kind of connection to film/television. Even a receptionist at your local cable company probably has a 'tude because she "works" for HBO. And, the higher up you go, to actual people who work on film and television productions, the worse it gets. And, it's not just an actor or director or executive thing....crews can be the most insufferable people on the planet. Some yutz whose job it is to nail together sets thinks he's some kind of god because his name might be listed on the credits of some shit movie or tv show.

And, indy film people are just as insufferable if not worse than the actual pros.

OH! And, don't get me started on film FESTIVAL people! They all think they're the equivalent of Truffaut because they sell pop corn to old folks at a Wes Anderson screening or because they got to chat with Parker Posey for 10 minutes at an post screening reception.

by Anonymousreply 181March 19, 2021 7:23 AM

3) Media people. Ties in quite a bit with #2 but they're their own special kind of crazy. And, it's every category....TV and print and new media. And, 20 times more insufferable if they work with any kind of well known outlet.

And, it ranges from delusional anchor people on your local news to the yutz barely hanging on to their jobs at your local daily to the hip snots at your local hipster weekly down to the very deluded bloggers and "influencers". They all think they're VERY smart and VERY entitled to freebies left and right.

And, I say this as someone IN media. I know I'm smarter than most of these turds but I'm not constantly begging for freebies or playing the "don't you know who I am?" card to get them. Tacky.

by Anonymousreply 182March 19, 2021 7:28 AM

Let's just run down a few more briefly:

4) People who work at hot clubs/music and performance venues: they might actually be the worst of all. They treat EVERYONE like crap! Except for name talent and any hottie they might want to fuck.

5) Music store clerks/some bookstore clerks/most comic book store clerks: Jesus Fucking Christ, they're all such cheesy caricatures of Comic Book Guy down to the fact most of them are fat. And, loud. They all have a band/novel/graphic novel in a drawer some where.

6) People in fashion and god forbid they work for a big name.

7) Nowadays, and especially in hipster than thou metro areas, most wait staff, bartenders and baristas all think they're some kind of entitled god like being who deserve huge tips for doing very, very little and what they do do, is usually slow and with a sneer.

8) Performers: musicians, comics, drag, burlesque, rock n rollers, actors, painters....all fucking neurotic shitbags to one degree or the other. Most of them. A few normal ones scattered here and there but also so much delusion. And, they all vary slightly but they're all pretty equal in awfulness. Art people/painters/photographers are particularly annoying. Photographers might actually need their own category because they all think they're some kind of brilliant artist when in reality, anyone with a decent camera and an eye for framing, can take an amazing photo. But, don't tell them that because you'll get an hour long lecture on "technique" and "craft" and the hours/money they spent on acquiring both.

9) Poets.

Honestly, I bet he did get fired. If he was doing that to you, he'd be doing it to others and some other patients probably didn't deal with it so well. I've noticed a couple of times when I've been in similar situations, but my fear of confrontation makes me keep quiet, that you find out later the person is being a shit to other people too and one of them hasn't keep quiet about it.

Can't stand people like your receptionist. It's stressful enough going to the dentist without that going on, and just 'cause he has a miserable life I don't see why he has to take it out on people like you.

I would say that during the pandemic they have been getting the credit they deserve. Most nurses I know are nice and humble. I know a few who are arrogant as fuck. The worst one is my cousin's stepdaughter. Since the beginning of the pandemic, she whines on Facebook about how administration at the hospital where she works was allowing employees who aren't doctors or nurses to have some of the food and beverages that businesses and restaurants were donating to the hospital. She said something about how her job is harder than the maintenance people, security guards, social workers, receptionists, PBX operators, custodians, etc. and that they don't deserve any perks. While I agree her job is harder, I find it hilarious that she bitches about people getting occasional free food and she doesn't seem to get the people in those roles still play a part in her hospital running.

My cousin's stepdaughter is also someone who has been pretty spoiled throughout her life. She didn't work in high school or college. During college, my cousin's wife and her ex-husband covered all the expenses. She never had the experience of working some lower paying crap job.. There have been times that you can tell that she doesn't get that other people have jobs that are shitty or not so great in other ways.

I agree, Travis was whitewashed in the media and many people ignored the MLM crap he was involved in.

She described them as being cult like and that people in those groups would get very quiet whenever hotel employees were around them. Pre-Paid Legal is known as Legal Shield. There are review sites and anti-MLM forums/ sites that bash Pre Paid Legal/Legal Shield.

The fashion field, talk about insufferable and grating people. One note describes them to a T. These loons eat, breath and live 'fashion'. I shouldn't say eat, because most of them look ill. Most are obsessed with being thin, basically, they look near anorexic.

Everything in their lives is based on how they look and what labels are 'important'. Most of these fashionistas are incredibly insecure, they are always wondering what others think of them.

I ended up in this field by default, I initially started working on graphic designs for a fashion firm, I liked the work and remained. I love the work, yet despise most of these people. Thankfully, I no longer work with these people directly. I've been working from home since 2004.

I encountered that when I volunteered at a shelter in a city I used to live in. Some people who work in sectors of the non-profit world can be insufferable. I'm a social worker and I've worked in both private and public sectors. I've encountered and worked with some insufferable social workers, therapists, etc. in the private/non profit world. The worst ones were at a domestic violence shelter where I did a college internship at. The director, HR rep,the clinical directors and the case manager supervisor were insufferable and quite condescending to some of the lower level staff members.

I’ve never, ever, ever had one show up even within 2 hours of their appointment time.

They’ll call at 10:30am to say they are “running late” for their 9:00am appointment with you, but they’ll be there around 1:00pm.

When you tell them you won’t be there because you are headed to work, they’ll get all pissy.

Several posters who are nurses have expressed astonishment or bewilderment in this thread at people complaining about nurses being obnoxious, and I believe they’re being sincere, so I'd like to explain the situation to them. I’m a quiet, courteous, responsible patient. I’ve known nurses and other medical personnel who were beautifully empathetic, kind, and caring, even in stressful, demanding situations. But these good nurses need to know that they have a disproportionately high percentage of colleagues who undercut the reputation of their profession by taking [italic]obvious personal pleasure[/italic] in bullying patients, in enjoying the patients’ embarrassment or discomfort, in belittling their concerns or fears, in scolding them for not knowing what only a medical professional would know; and often it appears that they are simply exasperated that the patient is there to deal with in the first place. Then there is also their tendency for a misplaced self-confidence, and speaking with inadequate knowledge. A nurse was busily berating me once for not having rescheduled a follow-up exam “after your new prescription” . . . when I pointed out that I had no new prescription, and that the medication she was referring to was one I have taken for several decades. Many nurses seem to get a psychological high from supposing themselves to have authority, knowledge, and power which, in truth, they don’t have at all. Abused patients should stop being kind and accepting this behavior, and should not hesitate to register calm and accurate complaints with the proper authority. Patients deserve respect too.

Are you sure this person was an actual nurse or just a medical assistant? Many doctors today don't hire actual nurses to assistant them in an office setting. A medical assistant usually takes your blood pressure and weight, they can also do an EKG.

Most medical assistants are decent and professional, while others are total morons and on bizarre power-trips.

Once I was literally only 15 minutes late for two special eye tests which I could not get at my local medical office, where I see most of my doctors. Even though my eye doctor is local, I had to travel to another part of my borough because the special machines for these eye tests were not in the local office. My eye doctor works out of three offices of the HMO. The problem was, he wasn't doing the tests, a medical assistant was.

This obnoxious medical assistant slowly waddled out of an office, I thought I was being called in, she informed me, "You are very late!" She then had the audacity to ask me to reschedule. "You need to reschedule!" Very late? "Very late" would be about an hour or two. I wasn't actually even 15 minutes late, as I had to sign in at the front desk and two people were before me checking in.

Considering this medical group actually has patients sometimes wait over an hour or two to see a doctor, and this is with having an appointment, the nerve of being asked to reschedule, was incredibly unprofessional. I could see this woman was on some sort of power trip.

I informed her, I took three buses to this office, I live nowhere near the office and there was no way I was going to take more time off my job. I also informed this dunce, "Not once in all the years that I've belonged to this medical group have I ever been taken on time, why would today be any different?" I also told her, "The time you are wasting arguing, the first test could have been done and yes, I know how long each test will take because my eye doctor told me!"

This horrible medical assistant spent more time berating me than the actual first test took! That test took barely 10 minutes.

Because she had another patient, this moron went on about being unable to squeeze me in later on. I informed this dolt, I was the other patient she had at 3PM! She then figured she wasn't going to win the argument, she then left in huff for lunch. Another technician, who appeared out of nowhere, did the first test.

I thought I was in The Twilight Zone, if another technician was available, why was this crazy woman arguing with me?

So many people hate their jobs, they will take any opportunity to stress out others.

by Anonymousreply 279October 17, 2021 1:53 AM

r279 , that's a good insight, and I ( r272 speaking) think you're largely right about the problem being less about nurses proper but rather more about medical assistants. The confusion is fostered, though, by doctors and medical staff themselves, who--at least to patients--refer to both as "nurses." Doctors, also, need to take on the responsibility of making sure their medical assistants act in a responsible and professional manner at all times.

I'd like to add that I'm sincerely grateful and appreciative, and will always be, to those many nurses--who, considering the circumstances of particular occasions, were clearly [italic]true[/italic] nurses--for their empathy, consideration, and for going more than the extra mile for me on many occasions in significant, impactful, ways. In the hurley-burley of illness or eventually getting out of the hospital, we patients may forget to thank you, or not know how to reach you at that point; but, believe me, we will never forget those wonderful kindnesses you've done.

Ain't gonna happen. It's why most of what you see now is Nurse Practitioners. And from what I can tell they can do what the techs can except they have prescribing power.
