Kids these days rant:

My SIL and her BF stayed at our house from when their break started until Christmas morning, then drove to his house in NW Indiana. Once you get on 55, it is literally three turns to his parent's driveway. They got lost. A couple times. She has a smart phone and they wrote down directions.

Now, they're on their way back for the weekend (yay...) before classes start on Monday. He got a GPS for Christmas and they're *still* having navigational issues.

Ohmygod, how does this happen? Three turns! Don't turn until you're supposed to! In my day, we had to print out Mapquest directions or *gasp* look at an atlas...

You don't get GB from the flu shot, but you CAN get it from having the flu.

And he LIVES(D) there. How do you get lost when you're on your way to where you're from?

You know Red, it may not be that they believe that they will get sick from the flu shot. It may however be that they just don't like needles.
Years ago my department was told that we worked in a "high risk" area and that we were required to have TB skin tests twice a year from then on.
That's when you really have to step back and ask yourself is it worth all the aggravation.
But they were offered the nasal spray and still refused, so the needle fear thing is right out.

GB was associated with the Swine flu epidemic in the mid 1970's. I haven't seen epidemiological studies associating it with subsequent flu strains. It exists, certainly, and can be devastating, but the influenze virus is not causative.

I agree with teh hospital for firing teh nurses who would not be immunized. The hospital's mission is patient health. I put this in a category near, but not teh same as, pharmacists who don't want to dispense birth control.

When I got my smartphone last summer, I used teh gps to get from Wheaton Illinois to the Lincolshire Marriott, both places I knew well and knew how to get to. You wouldn't believe the route that thing took me on.

If you have always been a passenger and never a driver it is easy to get lost on the way to someplace familiar.

He's very smart, I think he just hasn't taken advantage of free reign with a car, much like my SIL.*shrug* I can't relate. We were all over the place at that age. Not that we never got lost, but not like that...

i got a call once from a co-worker "help, i got lost." ok, sez I, where are you... "in a home depot parking lot..."

/facepalm/

yes, i had to ask a few questions to find out WHICH BLOODY HD PARKING LOT and then tell her basically, turn the f around and get back on the highway. Her stupid GPS took her off of 55 to the buisiness loop and back on out the SW corner of the Bloomington Normal Metroplex instead of staying on 55 and going around.

and she had driven to BN several times, and also to the city she was realy headed to before... Ugh, i hate it when she has to go anywhere like that.

If you have the time to take a moment and step through the route before actually embarking, its sometimes a good thing. I have had times wheren the GPS actually gives me a better rout than I know. But last time I was in Tallahassee, I was going to a breakfast place that I looked and sounded good. Relatively new place, so I was not sure where it was. From my hotel, GPS took me North a few miles past Tennessee Street. Then east a few miles up to Capital Circle.
Then back south to the restaurant. About 2 blocks from Tennessee Street. I could have gone straight up Tennessee and been there quicker.

At least it did not get me lost. Just took my a dumb way.

You can have my portion of that fun. If it drips down your arm while eating it, I don't want it.

That is NOTHING like the pharmacist category.

If there are possible dangers with getting the flu shot, why should the rights of the patients trump the rights of the individual?

My own health is my responsibility and my freedom. There are already a multitude of lawsuits of Obamacare for requiring companies to provide contraceptives for their employees. Suppose Obamacare requires everyone to get a flu shot? And not doing so would be deemed illegal and you could be arrested, fined and jailed? You'd be okay with that?

It would have been funnier if he was arrested for defecating in public.
