White People



Let me preface by reminding everyone I am Puerto Rican.

Yesterday at about 9 AM I had a very drunk African American Female come in after falling and bruising her ribs. I refused to give her narcotic pain meds since she was drunk, and of course she threw a fit.

As my nurse (who was an older very black woman), and myself (a tan Puerto Rican) were attempting to discharge her, the patient shouted "YOU WHITE PEOPLE ARE ALL THE SAME."

The nurse and I both looked at each other to make we we hadn't lost our natural colors, shared a laugh, and I replied "Ma'am, there isn't a white person in this room!"

Imagine being that drunk on a Tuesday morning.
