You know you're a nurse when (part 22)

You start speaking like you're dictating.

I called the pharmacy the other day and called in a prescription for Flexeril. And said the period outloud. 

I've also started saying "scratch that" as though it's a normal thing. "Let's meet at Village Inn, scratch that, the gas station." 

The unexpected upside of the whole dictation situation is that I can use Dictation software to bust out an eight page paper really really fast.  And yes, I just used the words "bust out" and "paper" in the same sentence. Boom. 

Also, maybe I dictated this blog post maybe.
