Back again for episode ... Umm something or another.
OK so I live in a small RT cave at a small hospital in a small town on night shift. I also happen to be the only RT on at night, besides my mirror RT who works the nights I don't work. Which if you think about it is kind of funny in the way of social interaction type thing. You see here we only have a total of 9 people here in my RT department and the other night shift person is the only person I really don't know all that well. Why you ask? It's because there are only 2 of us night shifters here and if I'm working he is off and if he is working I'm off so with this little interesting arrangement we never really see each other, we will never really attend the same function together, we will never meet out with coworkers to have a drink together, nothing. The only real interaction we have together is over the phone if one of us wants to make a switch of shifts. I hear stories and anecdotes of him, some good, some bad, some interesting and there is a day shift RT who is dating him so I'm assuming she knows him well.
There is a shelf of our coffee cups here were we store our personnel cups, mine is up there right next to his and sometimes we play jokes on each others cup because he happens to have a Minnesota Vikings cub and I have a Chicago Bears cup. Yep 2 teams in the same NFL division so they play each other in the season and if the Bears lose I get a little note or something done to my cup and visa versa . Kinda makes for some fun.
There it is My Mirror RT, possibly me in a alternate universe, like I'm Spiderman and he is Venom or I'm Superman and he is Bizarro Superman. OK maybe not, I don't think we are complete opposites of each other but I just find it interesting that I have a opposite RT from when I work with whom during my time working here I may never really get to know as a coworker or a friend, just as that person on the other side of my RT mirror.
Just another tired night when the mind gets to wandering...
