One thing I've discovered in very recent years is that the Righteous don't have a sense of humour. Their lives are spend finding fault with those of us who support the 'live and let live' adage.
A fine example of the Righteous at work is this:
A charge nurse, 33, who had four years' unblemished service, said "It's months since I have been in this position," as she straddled a patient while helping her colleagues control him. She was dismissed for gross misconduct from her £25,000-a-year post at London's Central Middlesex Hospital.
Laura Bowater was on her way home from a shift in July 2006 when she stopped to help staff restrain the 'extremely strong' 31 year old patient whose trousers had been removed so doctors could inject his buttock. She sat on his ankles to control his flailing legs, but the patient span onto his back, exposing himself and kicking her forward. It was then she made the 'humorous' comment which senior staff investigated six weeks later.
An employment tribunal initially agreed she had been unfairly dismissed but the decision was overturned on appeal because, although the comment was heard only by other medics, it was made in a public A & E department.
The NHS has lost an efficient member of staff. The Righteous have gained another scalp.
I really don't want to live in a country which is fast becoming a place where common sense no longer prevails do you?
